Ten women from Norwich have been treated to a special surprise in the run up to the royal wedding.
Residents at Brooklands Care Home on Costessey Lane had their bridal bouquets recreated at an event on May 12.
The idea followed a survey to find out which flower people would most like to see in Meghan Markle's wedding bouquet.
Julia Chapman Wright, manager of Brooklands, said: 'Our residents are very excited about the royal wedding and this seemed a lovely way to engage them and bring back memories of their own weddings.'
Pat Monsey, wife of Brooklands resident David Monsey, 73, was one of the brides who had their bouquet remade.

The couple married within 12 weeks of meeting at St Mary's Church in Hellesdon. They had a very tight budget for the wedding as Pat's father didn't approve of the match. She said her dress cost the 'huge sum' of £7.50.
Mrs Monsey was presented with her bouquet by her grandchildren, Poppy, 4, and Daisy, 6, who helped make the flower arrangement.
