Warracknabeal couple Graham and Beverley Hobbs had resigned themselves to the realisation that they would have to miss their grand daughter’s wedding.
Lauri was getting married in Sydney and had organised airline tickets for her grandparents to attend. But a sharp decline in health had made the trip impossible for the pair and all looked lost for the important family event.
Fortunately technology was able to step in and save the day, along with some close friends.
Mr Hobbs was in respite care at Rural Northwest Health’s Yarriambiack Lodge when the wedding date arrived and his wife had been at home convalescing from treatment. The plan was devised for the pair to watch the entire wedding via skype media in the comfort of the lodge’s Dal Monte Cinema.
Their son Grant and his wife Michelle filmed the Friday afternoon wedding using a drone and gimbal and beamed it directly to the Dal Monte Cinema big screen. Family friends and techno-wizards John and Joan Thomson were able to connect the cinema equipment to the skype broadcast so that the couple was even able to talk to Grant while he was filming the wedding.
Mrs Hobbs was very impressed with the technology and the fact that they could view the entire wedding in plush chairs and from the climate controlled comfort of the cinema.
“It was good that we were able to see the entire wedding,” Mrs Hobbs said.
“She looked lovely.”
