A couple who tied the knot in the chapel at St George’s Hospital have thanked the staff who organised their wedding day.

Patient Felix Mensah and his wife, Anna were married by Rev Chris van D’Arque, Head of Chaplaincy and Spiritual Care.

Felix and Anna made their vows in front of a small congregation, including their two children and Felix’s immediate family on Saturday 23 January.

The couple and their family were delighted with the support and grateful to everyone who helped to make their day so special.

Felix said: “Myself, Anna and our entire family would like to thank St George’s Hospital and the chaplaincy team for their care and support during my stays in hospital and at home.

“I would like to say a special thank you to Rev Chris, Rev David Kwakye-Saka and healthcare chaplain Laura Hunt for organising our special wedding.

“I would also like to thank Almighty God for bringing me this far. We are blessed to have got married in St George’s chapel and hope to have the blessing of healing in Jesus’ name.”

“I just don’t know how to find the words to say thank you for all Rev Chris, Rev David and Laura have done for us.” said Anna.

“We are extremely grateful to St George’s Hospital and the Chaplaincy team whose support has been comprehensive, holistic, professional and compassionate.

“Your commitment, encouragement and prayer towards Felix during his admission in hospital, and follow up on the phone when at home has really helped our family.

“We couldn’t have had our wedding ceremony at this difficult time without the kind help of everyone at St George’s.

“Thank you for all the hard work you put in behind the scenes to make it happen, including arranging for a beautiful cake and lunch made by the catering team – it was a lovely surprise.”

Rev Chris van D’Arque said: “It was an honour to be a part of Felix and Anna’s special day and we wish them all the love and happiness in their married life together.”

Congratulations to Felix and Anna from everyone at St George’s!

Well done to our chaplaincy team for organising the wedding, and David Hill in our catering team for arranging the cake and individually boxed buffet lunches for the couple and their guests.
