DEVON, England, Nov. 19 (UPI) -- After a three-day romance, an elderly British couple tied the knot Monday in Devon.

James Mason, 93, and Peggy Clark, 85, had planned a quaint ceremony at Paignton's Oldway Mansion, but instead had a long list of guests to celebrate their nuptial, BBC news reported.

"It's absolute fairyland. Just to be together means the world. We both can't wait to be legal!" Clark said before the wedding.

Mason, a former mayor of Torbay, wore a top hat and tails so Clark decided a white bridal gown and tiara would be appropriate for the happy occasion, Sky News reported.

"Life used to be a dark, dismal place. It's now a very sunny, exciting place," Mason said of his bride's effect on him.

The newlyweds kept their honeymoon plans secret, the BBC reported.
