Chelsea v Spurs match was Bishop's Stortford golden wedding couple's first date
The former superintendent of Bishop's Stortford cemetery and his wife are celebrating their golden wedding anniversary.
Mick and Brenda Law were married at the church of St Cecilia in Little Hadham on June 21, 1969.
For their first date, lifelong Spurs fan Mick took Brenda to watch his beloved Tottenham play Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
The couple had met in Cradle End, Little Hadham, where Brenda was born, after Mick moved there from Cherry Green, Debden.
One year after their wedding, the couple moved to Bishop's Stortford, where Mick took up his role as a cemetery worker. When he retired after 35 years, he was the superintendent.
Previously, after leaving school, he worked with carthorses for the Harvey family at Hadham Park while Brenda worked as a sales assistant at Leas in South Street, where B&M now stands, before starting a family.
Daughter Julie, who lives in Bishop's Stortford, is a people development adviser for Superdrug while son Adrian, from Elsenham, has his own business, AL Fencing Specialist.
The couple have two grandchildren: Lauren Law, 18, who attends Amwell View School in Stanstead Abbotts, and Callum Law, 16, who has just taken his GCSEs at Birchwood High School and is about to start a two-year football scholarship with Sutton United FC.
The Laws celebrated their golden wedding with a family meal and attribute their long marriage to "give and take".
