Royal Wedding celebrations at Kippingtons

At Kippingtons Nursing Home in Sevenoaks, the big event of May was, of course, the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle at Windsor.

Our residents enjoyed getting into the wedding spirit in the run up to the big day. We made our own Royal Wedding preparations on 17th May by painting unique bunting flags designed by our Activities Co-Ordinator and Kippington Times assembler Peter. These were strung up on Friday in preparation for the big day on Saturday.

Come the day of the wedding, our home was full of anticipation and excited chatter and the TV was tuned in early to BBC1 in preparation for the day of coverage.

The room went silent when the ceremony started and we all were mesmerised by the events as they unfolded. It was very emotional as people reminisced about their own weddings or ones they had attended. There were even a few happy tears shed as it brought back some great memories.

Our Catering Manager Christine Kropp amazed everyone with her fantastic surprise Union Flag Celebration Cake, festooned with wonderful summer berry fruits and piped cream. We all agreed it tasted just as good (if not better) than it looked.

Our team also went to town with decorations and the dining room was emblazoned with Union Flags and red, white and blue napkins which looked great and set the scene. We all enjoyed a wedding feast and raised a glass in honour of the event sending the couple best wishes on their special day.

Edwin Cabagui, Home Manager commented:

“We all had a great day together and it was lovely to celebrate this momentous occasion with our residents, their loved ones and our team here at our home.”
