A bride wed her husband on the same day as her grandparents and two other relatives in the hope their lifelong happiness could be passed down.
Speech pathologist Alison Moorcroft married her partner Bree in Brisbane, Queensland, on May 23, exactly 57 years after her grandparents tied the knot.
The pair said they hoped the date would bring good luck and assure a successful marriage.

‘Gran and gramps started it, and they’re still married and have a loving relationship so I reckon we can carry that on and that will be amazing,’ Alison told Channel 9.
Alison and Bree are the fourth couple in their family to get married on May 23.
Relatives Janette and Danny Lewis wed in 1964, before Dianne and John tied the knot in 1987 and then Matthew and his wife Hannah in 2018.
The grandparents said the date made their granddaughters wedding extra ‘special.’
‘It’s a privilege to think that the kids are so interested in doing that, making it special for us. Because it really is special,’ Mr Lewis said.
The tradition is expected to continue as the couple said their future children ‘better’ tie the knot on the same day.
The happy couple said they hoped the success of their grandparents’ union would be passed down in their marriage
