Love is in the air at Arcare Helensvale, being February and coming up to Valentine’s Day, clients and team members were asked if they’d liked to share a wedding photo or photos of loved ones to celebrate this wonderful day of love.
As photos from clients and team members rolled in, we got to see ladies in their beautiful gowns, the grooms all handsome and dapper, gorgeous bridesmaids, little flower girls and page boys.
Everyone shared in the delight and excitement as these photos brought back so many memories.
The ladies talked about details of their dresses such as the material, design and style.
Many of the wedding dresses were made by someone close to the bride, so a lot of time went into designing, fitting, altering and preparing for the big day.
As more photos were shared, more clients wanted to become involved. Some clients brought photos of their children or grandchildren.
One lovely client shared a photo of her sister’s wedding where she was a bridesmaid. The photos ranged from 1949 up until 2018. Each photo marks an era and this is clearly shown by the style and fashion of the gowns and clothing.
It has been a wonderful way to share stories and memories to focus on memories, love, family and commitment.
The pride and smiles the clients had as they saw their photos added to the display was heart-warming. The display was on for a week and the highlight was a Valentine’s luncheon held in our café.
Our wonderful chef had a romantic menu planned and the room was decorated in red with the clients surrounded by photos and memories of their special day.
What could be more romantic for Valentine’s Day?
