Kelvin and Susan Hollingshead are living proof that it’s never too late to find true love. The couple, who are from the United Kingdom, were married last Monday, February 18, at the Sea Breeze Beach Hotel in Maxwell, Christ Church, five days after getting engaged at the same location.
For Kelvin and Susan, both 62, it was the perfect day at the perfect location in the perfect country.
Kelvin, a taxi driver, said he decided five days before coming to Barbados that he wanted to make Susan his wife.
“My kids love her and all our friends are always on us about getting married. I decided about three weeks ago that it was time. I looked into her eyes one day and I said, “You know what, I love this woman. We get on so well together and we are always making each other laugh, so why shouldn’t I marry her?’ So then I started making plans. I got in touch with the hotel and found out about getting married and what not.”
“Debbie Cadogan, events coordinator at the hotel, told me all I needed to get and I secured everything. I went out, got the ring and we came over to Barbados,” he explained.
But he wanted it all to be a surprise to his lovely lady so he made Debbie swear to secrecy so as to not spoil his plans. (DB)
