A DIF­FER­ENT KIND OF FIRST NIGHT

You and Your Wedding - - Lingerie -

“Simon and I were due to get mar­ried the same day as Kate and Wills, but my Mum was very un­well with ovar­ian can­cer. She was ad­mit­ted to Willen Hospice and it was clear she wasn’t go­ing to make it to the wed­ding. We can­celled our plans and had a fam­ily-only cer­e­mony at the church next to the hospice, with a quick meal at the pri­vate rooms in The Swan at Sal­ford. I went back to see my mum as soon as it was fin­ished. The sta prob­a­bly had never seen a bride run­ning down the cor­ri­dors be­fore! I had a headache due to stress at the end of the day, and I think we were in bed by 8pm. My mum passed away three days later. It’s not the day I would have cho­sen, but Mum was there and that was all that mat­tered.” Abby, Northamp­ton­shire
