A caring bride had a second ‘magical’ wedding day as a special treat for her grandma who suffers from dementia.

Hannah Jobey and Jay Harris enjoyed a dream ceremony when they tied the knot in front of their loved ones.

But Hannah’s grandma Liz Jobey, 86, missed out because of her condition. So the couple decided to have two weddings and re-enacted their big day at her care home.

Hannah, 29, will “treasure” the memories forever. The primary school teacher donned her wedding outfit and cut a cake alongside her husband at the Eothen care home in Wallsend, North Tyneside.

Afterwards she said: “I always wanted my gran to be part of our wedding. Doing it this way meant that she could be involved in a way that meant she felt at home.”

She added: “I really wished she could have been there on the actual day. But in the end I was so pleased we chose to do it this way.

“My gran was so relaxed and happy and that was so important to all of us. She kept holding my hand, not letting go, and looking at my dress.
