She met beau Malcolm Yates at a modern sequence dancing class and they have been together since.

Norah, now Mrs Yates, said: “To be a bride — oh, it’s beautiful. Of course it is worth the wait. I’d wait longer than that. There’s nothing he wouldn’t do for me.

“I couldn’t do without Malcolm. He’s special, very special.”

The couple wed at a hotel near their home in Prestatyn, North Wales.

Former school cook Norah has been married twice before and widowed. Former bus driver Malcolm popped the question earlier this year.

Norah said dancing had kept her young, adding: “I used to go with the girls. I liked it, especially if a chap picked you up.”

Malcolm said: ” I couldn’t dance, but Norah was very good at it.

“She more or less taught me and helped bring me on.

“We went travelling a lot and would dance on holidays to Torquay.

“We liked the Cha-cha-cha the best. We’re always out and about together.”

Norah said the secret to a long life is keeping active.

She added: “I’ve had a very good life really, I’ve enjoyed it.”
