When it comes to expressing love for another human being, there is simply no better occasion than a wedding.
By definition, the union between two connected souls is a once-in-a-lifetime event, and people usually go to great lengths to ensure their day is as special as it can be.
Now, while we’re sure you all enjoyed memorable wedding days (if you’re married), we simply had to draw attention to one particular bride and what she did to show her deep love for her husband.
Liz Shoesmith and her husband Scott live in Caringbah, Australia, with the two communicating through sign language. Scott is deaf, see, so when it came to their wedding day there were a few things they needed to get around.
Of course, this didn’t stop the lovebirds planning each and every minor detail so that they and their guests could enjoy the perfect day. They did it all together save for one thing, which Liz had prepared as a surprise for her husband to be.
When the big day came, Liz paused at the end of the aisle rather than joining Scott at the altar. But, don’t worry, this wasn’t a case of last-minute nerves.
Far from it, in fact. Liz was getting ready to perform. The song “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri was playing, whilst Liz donned a beautiful white dress emboldened by silver patterns.
When the lyrics came in, Liz signed the words for her husband. Each gesture was made with decisive grace – she’d been rehearsing for this for some time.
As for Scott, his breath was taken away. He began to tear up as his lovely bride displayed her immeasurable love in the most fitting of ways.
Liz told Love What Matters: “I won’t lie, I was terrified before walking into the ceremony. But the moment I locked eyes with him I never looked away and it was a special moment just between the two of us. He held it together for a few seconds before crying the whole way through the song. He has re-watched the video a hundred times and he still cries every time!
