Lorna and Lloyd Delves renewed their wedding vows in the company of the same pastor and wedding guests that attended the original ceremony 50 years ago.

The Aldergrove couple celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on June 19 and two days later renewed their vows at the Aldergrove Baptist Church.

Pastor Gordon Forbes repeated the ceremony he performed 50 years earlier at the Richmond Baptist Church, in the company of the original wedding party: Fran Hill, Eunice Robinson, Ruth Holmes, Laverne Delves, Ryan Thomas and Don Parrott.

Lloyd’s father Charlie, now 98, was also present and Lorna’s brother Gerry walked her down the aisle.

Grandson Keegan, 13, was an honor guard wearing his sea cadet uniform, and grandson Tavis played his guitar in accompaniment to pianist Trudy Goulet-Jones.

A luncheon and fellowship followed the service in the church hall.

Lloyd and Lorna now reside in Pioneer Park in south Aldergrove, where Lloyd is enjoying his retirement years after many years service with the Langley Township fire department.
