The new Mr & Mrs Thomas go national
That moment when wedding bells were replaced with the sounds of a truck horn and it made the national papers.
Thanks to activities coordinators Jen Stutter and Lisa Kimble, their colleague Sarah, now the new Mrs Thomas was given a wonderful surprise pop up wedding reception at Finney House in Preston on Saturday 8th May.
After their wedding ceremony, the newly married Mr & Mrs Thomas came straight over to Finney House, arriving in Dave’s boss’s fabulous truck as their wedding car so that residents could see Sarah in her wedding dress. What they didn’t realise was that everyone had been planning this surprise for weeks and staff pulled out all the stops to make this a day to remember both for Sarah and for our residents.
Finney House’s reception area was transformed into a pop up wedding party venue (Covid restrictions observed of course) complete with decorations, afternoon tea, sugared almond favours, wedding gifts, Bucks Fizz and even a wedding cake.
Residents made their own fascinators and were thrilled to see Sarah in her wedding dress, the truck caused quite a stir too!
