Georgina, 94, and her ‘toyboy’ Ray, 86, married in front of their tearful family and friends after falling in love at a care home in Surrey. With tears in her eyes, Georgina exchanged wedding vows with her terminally-ill ‘toyboy’, Ray, promising to love him ’till death us do part’.
Later, the newlyweds joyfully rode down the church aisle on ‘Just Married’ mobility scooters, as their families cheered and applauded.
Aged 94 and 86, Georgina and Ray are among three elderly British couples featured in a new Channel 4 documentary, I Do at 92.
In emotional scenes, they are filmed marrying in front of their family and friends before returning to the home for their reception.
Georgina commented: “Being in love at 94 is just as exciting and just as tantalising and breathtaking. I can’t resist looking’ into his eyes.”
Ray has been diagnosed with terminal cancer a year earlier. He had been given just three months to live, but was defying expectations.
The pair quickly fell in love and within six months, Ray had proposed Georgina said ‘yes’ to her ‘toyboy’, believing ‘life is for living’.
After spending five weeks planning their wedding, the couple tied the knot in a moving ceremony, before riding down the aisle on mobility scooters.
They later enjoyed a reception at the care home, where fellow residents were offered a variety of soft foods, allowing for their dentures!!
