Every bride wants to look her absolute best on her wedding day, all eyes will be on her and photos will be taken of the momentous occasion.
But it’s not just the bride and groom’s appearance that counts but the visual details of the day: the decorations, flowers, lighting, venue, the hope is that they will all be picture perfect.
But what if the bride is blind? How does she get to experience her special day the same way as her guests and what changes in terms of priorities?
Bride Stephanie Campbell was getting ready for her special day and decided that she wanted her guests to experience her day her way with a very unusual request. Now her wedding video has now gone viral.
According to the Western Journal at the age of 19, Stephanie Campbell’s vision deteriorated and doctors determined that she was suffering with Cone-rod dystrophy, which occurs in youngsters and leaves most sufferers blind by mid-adulthood.
Stephanie’s mom suffered with the same disease and is now blind.
“By the time I was 29 I had no useful vision left,” Stephanie said, according to Good Morning America.
In November 2018, when Stephanie turned 32, she was getting ready for the biggest day of her life – marrying her true love Rob.
Thankfully she had found some amazing wedding planners who were very descriptive of the process and made sure Stephanie got married in a spot with a view she remembered well.
The beautiful wedding was about to take place on Nov. 25, 2018, in Maleny, Australia, but at this celebration Stephanie had asked the guests to do something completely unexpected – wear a blindfold.
In a video of the beautiful celebration, the narrator says: “When we lose one of our senses the others become heightened which allow us to experience something as beautiful as these vows in a totally unique way.”
‘It’s powerful. It’s love’
It also meant that all the guests were “completely present” and focused on the words of the ceremony, words they will never forget.
“Here was Steph looking so stunning that she took Rob’s breath away and yet she couldn’t see her own beauty nor Rob’s expression of complete adoration herself,” Lemon Tree Film House said. “It’s humbling. It’s powerful. It’s love.”
