Coronavirus restrictions may have kept her from attending in person, but Dot Bash was able to watch her grandaughter’s live-streamed wedding from her Braintree care home.

The 91-year-old, who lives in RMBI Care Co Home, Prince Edward Duke of Kent Court in Essex, said she was ‘so grateful’ to be able to tune in to her grandaughter Kathryn’s wedding.

Dot and other residents got dressed up to watch the ceremony after staff at the home arranged for the wedding to be live-streamed.

She was able to watch through a window as Kathryn cut her wedding cake outside the home.

‘It added an extra exciting dimension to the whole day and lasting memories to treasure.

‘It’s lovely that the home is doing so much. They’re having a three-course meal and canapes… they’re probably doing more than we are.’

Dot said: ‘I’m so grateful that the home was able to make this happen so I could see my granddaughter getting married.’

‘We couldn’t bear the thought of Dot not being able to see her granddaughter getting married in real-time,’ the home’s manager Aggie McDonald said.

‘They’re such a close family, for her to miss it would have been heart-breaking.

‘We were determined to make it special for her and it was lovely that our other residents were also able to enjoy such an uplifting event.’
