“The chaplaincy team worked hard to get permission for us to be married, which we appreciated greatly at a time when so much was going on. A date was set within two weeks, and we hadn’t bought my dress, our rings and other things we needed, so we rushed to get everything done quickly.”
The service was held by Revd Mia Hilborn, the head of spiritual healthcare at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, with only Revd Hilborn, Jann, Annalan and two witnesses in the chapel.
“It was nice being just us, it felt very intimate,” Jann, who has worked at the hospital for six years, said.
After the ceremony, the newlyweds hosted a virtual drinks reception for their guests having sent champagne to their homes in advance which included their first dance and speeches.
Revd Hilborn said: “At such a challenging time for staff, as chaplains we strive to offer as much support as we can.
“I was delighted to be able to get special permission to marry Jann and Annalan in the beautiful chapel at St Thomas’. It was a lovely service, and I was thrilled to be part of it.”
