A bride to be was so determined to share her special moment with those she cares for each day that she brought her wedding to them.

Many of the residents at Clavering Care Home, in Royston Grove, Pinner, are unable to get out and about, so when team leader Shirley Teope was set to wed, she thought she would make sure they do not miss the big day, holding a ceremony first at Harrow Civic Centre in Station Road on Saturday morning, before having a wedding blessing carried out by a priest later in the day at the home where she has worked for six years.

“It was so special,” she said. “The residents were really enjoying themselves and it was a real family atmosphere on the day.

“I felt very blessed to share the day with them, and with such beautiful weather. My manager Jane suggested it, and it was such a lovely idea.”

Now married to her partner of eight years Malcolm Stuart, who she lives with in Uxbridge Road, Harrow Weald, Shirley is enjoying her honeymoon.

Manager of the home Jane Jones said: “It was so lovely for her to want to share the day with the residents.

“When you work somewhere like this, everyone becomes family and we were so happy to see them enjoying the day as much as Shirley did."
