Grandson and his bride delight grandmother with care home window visit


20th January 2021

An Angus care home resident was given a very special surprise when her grandson and his bride visited on their wedding day.

Evelyn Dyce, 97, a resident at Balhousie Lisden care home in Kirriemuir, was unable to attend her grandson’s wedding because of COVID-19. Not wanting his grandmother to miss out on such a special day, the groom, Ewan Dyce from Kirriemuir, and his bride, Rachel, brought a little bit of the wedding to her with a window visit.

The happy couple visited Evelyn separately on their way to their wedding at Kinkell Byre in St Andrews on January 7th, 2021 making sure they didn’t see each other before the ceremony. Evelyn was delighted to see them. She said: “Ewan was looking so bright and lovely and she was a bonny bride.”

Balhousie Lisden Care Home manager, Richard Lake, added:

“Ewan and Rachel’s visit meant the world to Evelyn, but it also really lifted the spirits of all our residents and staff. We’d like to thank the newlyweds and wish them a very happy life together.”
