His trousers were a little too short and her gown a little too big. But when it came to partners, they had already found the perfect fit.
Seventeen years after they dressed up as bride and groom as four-year-olds, Ron and Eileen Everest got married for real.
And now, a few more years on, the couple are celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary.
Born on the same hospital ward just months apart, they became firm friends as children in Gillingham, Kent, thanks to their fathers, who had served together in the Navy during the First World War.
‘Our parents decided to dress us as a bride and groom for the Gillingham Carnival,’ said Mrs Everest.
‘We were only four years old but I still remember that day so well.'
