The day's proceedings at Brooke House residential care home, in Brooke Gardens near Norwich, began with a viewing of the wedding television coverage in the main lounges and in the garden, while the younger generation enjoyed a bouncy castle.

Champagne and canapés were served, before staff, residents and visitors alike were treated to a special wedding buffet.

All members of staff made an effort to dress up for the event, which was seen as an opportunity for residents to interact with members of the public and feel part of their local community.

Visitors were also given the chance to look around Brooke House, built in the 1930s as the stately residence of the Mackintosh family, noted for brands such as Quality Street. Millie Mackintosh, former star of reality show Made in Chelsea, belongs to the family.
