This is the moment when two sturdy football players dress as bride and groom to entertain elderly patients with dementia.
The players of Central Queensland Capras walked down the aisle on Thursday during the so-called wedding ceremony at the Azar House retirement home in Rockhampton.
Blushing bride, Aaron Pene, the team's second rower, wore a spaghetti strap wedding dress with a veil and held a colorful bouquet.
The acting groom, former rugby player Lionel Harbin, wore a golden top hat, a suit and a Capras soccer jersey.

The CQ Capras are regular visitors to the dementia unit of elderly care.
& # 39; It's actually just to see the resident smile. That's why we do these things, & # 39; told an Azar House worker 7News.
Older men and women clapped and cheered when Pene and Harbin released their & # 39; first dance & # 39; did.
Some patients were invited to come forward and participate in the performance.
The sham marriage was part of the & # 39; remembrance day & # 39; from the Azar House, which is meant to help patients remember.
& # 39; It's good that the club is part of something like this. It is good for the boys to show a little gratitude, & Harbin said.
