The grandson of a resident living at a Colne brought his wedding to the home after his grandma couldn’t attend his big day.
Elaine Jervis lives at MHA Waterside House and was unable to travel to Wales to watch her grandson Mark marry his partner Sammy.
Prior to the wedding the family has discussed the opportunity to recreate the couple’s big day at the home so his nan could witness the occasion.
The staff at the home, which provides a safe and caring environment for up to 60 people living with dementia, were more than happy to accommodate and arranged for one of the lounges at the home to be the setting for the wedding.
The chaplain, Dawn Ellis facilitated a service of prayer, with the residents, staff and family members in attendance.
The kitchen staff prepared a buffet spread, with Elaine’s family contributing pizzas and cake, which was enjoyed by all.
Speaking after the wedding Elaine said: “It was lovely to be part of Mark and Sammys big day.
“I saw the pictures from the wedding and could not stop smiling.
“Having the home recreate the wedding was nice, I really enjoy living here and have some wonderful friends,
“The home looked amazing, the decorations and everything that was arranged was just perfect.”
