60 years of love | VIVA MÉDIA Skip to main content

On July 2nd, Irène Langevin and Jean-Guy Duhême celebrated their diamond wedding. It was on the patio at the back of their family home that the little party took place. “We would have liked to highlight this differently, but we have to adapt to the current situation. It is therefore in complete privacy, respecting the social distancing, that we celebrated our parents in our own way so that they remember this day,” underlines their daughter Elaine.

Their love story began at the little church of St-Barbe during mass, some Sunday morning. “I found this young woman, on the bench so close to mine, to be so beautiful. She was to be mine and I immediately had to woo her,” said Mr. Duhême with his beautiful smile. It was therefore in this same church, that on July 2nd, 1960, that they united their destiny for better and for life. A promise they are proud to have kept. The party continued at the Kensington reception hall where the guests had fun.

In 1964, the couple moved to Godmanchester where they founded their family. From this union were born Elaine, Gaétane and Clément who in their turn continued the line with Lydia, Julie, Mathieu, Audrey and Nicolas, without forgetting the two great-granddaughters, Aliyah and Mylah and a baby who is on the way to complete the family.

After 34 years of loyal service to Automobiles Riverside and following the closure of the garage, Mr. Duhême decided to open his own garage and his wife would follow in this adventure, becoming his assistant. “What makes our couple strong is our bond. We have worked together a good part of our lives and we complement each other well, while teasing and having fun. We have always made a superb team, even today, by going together with our own saw cutting our firewood for the winter or by going hunting or even sharing musical moments with me on the guitar and him on his violin,” says Mrs. Irene.

Finally, note that Mrs. Claire IsaBelle, MP for the county of Huntingdon came to present an honorary certificate to the couple. The latter also represented Mrs. Claude DeBellefeuille who could not be present. “It is an honor to pay tribute to a local couple who celebrate 60 years together, it is exceptional and remarkable. We can only admire them, congratulate them and wish them a long life together. Nataly Boulerice, my press secretary even sang to them Pour vivre ensemble, a song they love very much, a very touching moment,” says Mrs. IsaBelle.
