A MARRIED couple have finally posed for their wedding photos - 88 YEARS after tying the knot.

Wu Conghan, 101, and his wife Wu Sognshi, 103, married in 1924 and have been together for almost nine decades.

Cameras were almost unknown in China when they got married, but their new keepsakes are something they have dreamed of having ever since.

Their wish came true after a local photo company offered to help the pair from Nanchong, Sichuan province pose for wedding album shots.

The happy couple dressed in full wedding finery for the snaps - with the blushing bride in a full-length gown and veil - before they looked at their mementoes on a laptiop.

The gesture came as part of an initiative in the city that has seen photographers volunteer to help elderly couples obtain wedding photographs they missed originally.
