Invercargill’s Bupa Ascot Care Home caregiver Maddie Brown with resident
‘Dusty’ Allan Miller at the home’s Bridal Fashion Show last week.
Safety pins and quick stitching helped staff into 15 wedding dresses and four bridesmaids’ dresses, from private collections of the staff and residents, as they walked the aisle runway.
About 100 residents from Longwood and Riverton care home were in attendance.
Resident Gwyneth McMillan said seeing all the wedding dresses made her think of her own wedding.
“I thought it was very good and we were very lucky to have this event in our own home. Seeing the beautiful wedding dresses reminded me of my wedding dress my mum made me.”
