Southport couple celebrate their silver wedding anniversary by returning to The Royal Clifton Hotel.

Southport couple, Linda and Michael Norris are celebrating their Silver Wedding Anniversary.

The couple are staying in the Bridal Suite at the Royal Clifton Hotel in Southport, the same suite where they spend their wedding night 25 years ago.

After having their wedding reception at the Kingsway Princess Suite, the couple signed a “Ledge of Lovers” as part of the then, “Romantically Yours” package, paid for by Linda’s father.

The package entitled the couple to return for a free night, 25 years later. Linda remembers her father saying “make sure you return, even if I’m not around”.

Mr and Mrs Norris would like to thank The Royal Clifton Hotel for keeping their promise.
