The care home's Helen Travis said around 50 residents and family members had watched.

"We needed to use the cinema room as well for people to watch because we were short on space in the dining room" she said.

"Everyone got dressed up and it was just such a festive occasion."

Helen residents who were bed bound had watched the ceremony in their rooms.

"We gathered everyone in the dining room at 11am and had a projector which showed the wedding on a big screen," she said.

"We served a celebratory cherry and everyone had a lovely buffet which was prepared from by kitchen.

"One of our carers, Marie, made us a cake while we had decorations put up and also had two Union Jack flags made with the couple on them."
