A 52-year-old cancer patient, Cindy Davies was granted her dying wish when right on her hospital bed, she watched her 31-year-old daughter walk down the "not-so-regular" aisle.
Prior to this time, Davies was diagnosed with terminal bowel cancer. This development made her worry she won’t live to see her daughter get married because the duo was to marry the following year. At the hospital she was admitted in, the staff, however, added a beautiful touch to their job description as they help put a plan in place to have the sick woman's wish come true.
After deciding on a new wedding date, Kerry Webb and her partner Dean Badhams-Williams said their vows at St. Michael's Hospice, Herefordshire at her mother’s bedside with 50 people in attendance.
Bride, Kerry was accompanied down the aisle by her grandfather, Gordon Thomas during the private wedding service which was conducted by the hospice chaplain. Although the hospital granted Davies her wish, it did come with some price. The bride had to improvise with a strapless dress instead of a wedding dress; she, however, couldn’t hide her joy as she appreciated the makeshift event planners.
"From the moment I mentioned what I'd like to do, they've been great and have even sorted catering and a photographer. It all happened so quickly, but it means so much to us." - Kerry Webb
Kerry went on to talk about how she longed for her mother to be in attendance while she tied the knot, hence, the hospice-themed wedding.They made sure to capture the beautiful moments of the wedding ceremony as Cindy Davies witnessed her daughter tie the knot. There were delicacies for the guests, and everyone had a lovely time at the hospice.
The highly emotional scenario isn’t the first of its kind; people are now more outspoken about their battle with the horrible disease. Some time ago in 2017, a clip showing a father-daughter dance attracted the attention of celebrity talk show host, Ellen DeGeneres of “The Ellen Show.”
Ellen later invited the daughter, Mary Bourne and her spouse to the show, and they spoke about how her father had been diagnosed with glioblastoma, a highly malignant brain tumor which took his life few days after the wedding ceremony.
Although Kerry's wedding ceremony was unconventional, she was able to fulfill a fantastic intention.
