"This is my beautiful grandmother, Millie Taylor-Morrison, who was married over the weekend at 86-years-old," she wrote.

"She just turned 86 one week ago and her new husband will be 86 in December. My grandmother was married to my grandfather for 41 years when he passed away."

"She found love again almost 25 years later and our family couldn't be happier for her."

Millie has known Harold for over 60 years and he was even a guest at her first wedding, Metro.co.uk reports.

The pair lost contact over the years but reconnected through a religious group. When Harold got ill, Millie picked him up and brought him to church every Sunday, bringing the pair back together.

"This is a true testament that age is just a number and everyone can find love again."

The post has since gone viral, with over 7,700 shares and 97,000 likes since it was shared.
