STAFF and residents at a Halifax nursing home held a wartime wedding in honour of the royal big day later this week.

Two members of staff at Trinity Fold Nursing Home, on Blackwall, handyman Steve Porter and carer Liz Camplin were “married” in front of the residents, who were wedding guests.

Bankfield Museum loaned them wartime memorabilia and songs of the period were sung throughout the day.

Mother of the bride was 62-year-old resident Sheila Garry, father of the bride was Vaughan Foster, 89 and best man Bill Wilson, 85.

Gill Sherwood, who was the vicar, said: “We wanted to celebrate the royal wedding in a way our residents could relate to.

“All the residents came and joined in. They had a really good day.”
