Coffs hospital plays host to a wedding

A HOSPITAL is one of the last places you'd expect to be on your wedding day.

For newlyweds Kim and Mick Apps, the Coffs Harbour Health Campus played a special role in their wedding day last weekend in Boambee.

Mick's sister, Julie Love, who travelled from Glasglow for the special day, was one of two marriage witnesses, but fell ill suddenly and was admitted to the health campus.

Hospitalised or not, Kim said the pair were determined to include Julie in their wedding nuptials.

"We could have crossed her name out and put someone else's in, but we thought she's come all this way and I'm sure she doesn't want to miss out altogether," Kim said.

A few strange looks were exchanged at the wedding party by onlookers as they bustled through the hospital doors, but staff were very accommodating, Kim says.

"They were quite co-operative ... We just kind of barrelled in and they led us to Emergency and didn't have any problems."

The couple walked into the room of a very excited Julie, who was delighted the wedding party was still able to include her.
