Wedding Portrait Taken 88 Years Later

Wu Conghan and Wu Songshi got married in 1924 in Nanchong, Sichuan province, China. There were no local photographers then, so there were no wedding photos taken. The couple are still married 88 years later, and they recently posed in wedding finery for the pictures they didn't have on their wedding day. A local photography company volunteered to snap the pictures as part of an city initiative to give older people wedding portraits, according to another story. Conghan is 101 years old, and Sognshi is 103. See more pictures of the at the Daily Mail. Link -via reddit

I don't know how many websites are copying this around, but it's a bit embarrassing that they misspelt her name. It's surely Wu Songshi. You can't make the sound Sogn in Chinese.
