Residents marry at Culverhayes Nursing Home!
Rose and John have been together for 18 years and both live at Culverhayes Care Centre. One Leap Year Rose took the opportunity to propose to John, and together they started planning their big day. The happy couple decided they would like to get married at Culverhayes as then they could be surrounded by their friends including many of the staff and Residents.
As the Big Day got closer, Rose and John decided on a colour scheme of pink and blue and requested a cake with their names on. When asked if they had any special requests for the reception buffet John asked for butterscotch angel delight and Rose requested lots of different flavoured crisps!
The day itself was a little overcast but this did not dampen anyone’s spirits. Rose looked beautiful in a lilac two piece with a floral headband and the groom was very smartly dressed too. After a specially arranged visit from the hairdresser Rose and John left for the registry office and returned a happily married couple.
In the afternoon staff, visitors and Residents came together in the Culverhayes conservatory (full to the brim with balloons and flowers) to witness a blessing performed by the local church. Joseph, a nurse at Culverhayes, gave Rose away and John’s carer, Gilbert was his best man.
After the service Carol, a real favorite entertainer in the homes, arrived to entertain everyone. The champagne was popped and all the guests tucked into the delicious buffet. Ash and Minal Desai (the company CEO and Operations Director) made an appearance to wish the couple all the best and raise a toast to their future together.
All in all it was a very special day, congratulations Rose and John!
