Pam and Bill Way met as teenagers at a dance at Maitland Town Hall.
Sixty years later, dancing is still one of their favourite things to do together.
The Kurri Kurri couple will celebrate their diamond wedding anniversary on Thursday.
They married at St Mary's church in Maitland on March 4, 1961; the bride aged 17 and and the groom 19.
"I was very nervous," Bill recalled.
The newlyweds lived with Pam's family at Buttai for the first year of their marriage before moving to Kurri Kurri, where they live in the same house to this day.
Pam says there's no secret to their marriage's longevity: "We just clicked," she said.
A love of family, community, travel and dancing has kept the pair young at heart.
Pam and Bill have been heavily involved in the Kurri Kurri community during their marriage, as long-serving volunteers with Tidy Towns and Towns With Heart.
They enjoy rock 'n' roll dancing, and have been members of the Eagle Rocks dance club for more than a decade.
Their youngest son Chris lives in the Netherlands, and they have been lucky enough to travel to Europe many times to visit him and his family.
Pam and Bill have four children (Tony, Karen, Kerrie and Chris), 10 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren, with one on the way.
They will celebrate their anniversary with family at home on Saturday.
