A caregiver surprised the adults she supports by asking them to be her bridesmaids.
Kayrin Callaghan, 30, instantly knew she wanted the adults she supports to be a special part day when her fiancé, Alex Slater-Brown, 25, a hospital care assistant, proposed
The mom-of-two has supported Jamie Kevern, 24, who has Down syndrome, for two years.
Kayrin also helps Daisy, 18, Francesca, 20, and Chloe, 26 - who also have Down syndrome - and stuck up a special bond with them all - enjoying days out to the local swimming pool and cinema together.
She asked the four of them to be her "flowermaids" by getting them to open boxes full of balloons.
All four were ecstatic and are already planning a bachelorette party for bride-to-be Kayrin.
Kayrin, a personal assistant, from Cambourne, Cornwall, UK, said: “They were so happy when I asked them to be my bridesmaids - there were lots of tears.
“They are so special to me. I wanted to give them the chance to walk down the aisle.
“We’re going to have a Disney-inspired Halloween wedding, so they’ll get to wear princess dresses.
“I want them to feel as special as they are to me.”
Kayrin bonded with the adults she cared for as soon as she met them.
“I’m like their big sister,” Kayrin said.
“They can come to me about their boyfriend or friendship troubles. They are ferocious dancers. We always get cheesy chips together after swimming.”
When Kayrin’s fiancé, Alex proposed to her in April 2022 she knew immediately who she wanted as her bridesmaids.
She said: “I had to plan a good way to ask them - so I decided to get some balloons which had the words ‘Will you be my flowermaids?’ on.
“They opened the boxes and Francesca, who is the best at reading, read what it said aloud to everyone.
“Their reaction was amazing, and we had lots of tears. Then they started twerking - which they love to do.”
Kayrin plans to get married in October 2023 and wants a "Nightmare Before Christmas" Disney inspired wedding.
“There isn’t going to be a color scheme as Jamie always loves to wear rainbow colors,” she said.
“They can all wear what they want and dress up in Disney princess dresses.
“We’ll have Mickey Mouse pumpkins on the tables.
“They are all planning the hen now - I think they’ll be lots of WKD involved as Jamie loves that drink.
“I just can’t wait to see their faces on my big day.”
