Royce and Frankie King when younger. A couple in their 90s - who married without a wedding dress or photographer first time around - were finally able to have the day they always dreamed of 77 years on - thanks to their hospice carers. See SWNS story SWFTweddingphotos. Devoted couple, Royce and Frankie King, hadn't been able to have wedding photos taken on their big day when they wed on 16 September 1944 - having just squeezed in their nuptials before Royce went off to fight in the war. Frankie had worn a white dress she already had and Royce wore his military uniform. After their hospice discovered that they didn't have any, they arranged for the couple to have some special snaps taken in the back garden of the home they have lived in for 68 years. Royce, 98, put on his military uniform and Frankie wore a 1940's wedding gown sourced by St Croix Hospice, Iowa, US- a hospice that provides care for patients in the comfort of their own home. The lovebirds were able to celebrate their marriage with Frankie walking down the aisle with a bouquet of flowers to classic '40s tunes played by St Croix's music therapist, Brandon.
