When this Chinese couple got married 80 years ago in 1936 they were so poor to celebrate it big. They couldn't even take a wedding picture because of their poor financial condition.

 

But after 80 years of marital bliss, this loving couple finally decided to pose for their wedding photo while holding hands.

What makes the wedding pictures special is the fact that even after all these years Song Qinglin, 102, and Song Lishi, 99, are very much in love.

 

The couple who lives in Anhui the eastern province of China was helped by volunteers to get dressed as the bride and groom. The bride wore a white wedding dress with sequins and the groom wore a traditional Chinese dress.
