We all have experiences in life that are unique. We may want to share them with others, but it can be difficult to truly allow somebody to walk a mile in our shoes. Lucy Edwards is someone who wanted others to understand the way she lives her everyday life. When she was only 17 years old, she went blind.

It wasn’t only the fact that she was 17, she had been dating a man for only two months when she lost her sight. That man is now her husband, Ollie Cave.

Lucy recently got married to Ollie in a ceremony in London, England. It was a beautiful wedding that took a lot of planning, but it had a unique element that nobody had ever experienced before.

In order to help people understand what Lucy goes through every day, she wanted her wedding guests to experience it in the same way. This was accomplished through the use of blindfolds, and she shared everything on TikTok.

She wrote: “So this is the moment that I blindfolded all my guests, and I walked down the aisle on my wedding day

“Myself and Ollie thought it would be a really good idea to blindfold him as well, as when I got to the end, and my dad passed my hand to Ollie he was able to feel my wedding dress in the exact way that I felt it when I first had it on. This was such an important experience for us both even though Ollie isn’t blind, but we thought it was really important for him and all of my guests to experience what it’s like for me in the most important moment of our life so far.

“As you can see me, Ollie and my dad are really struggling to hold it together. It was such an emotional moment and one that I will remember for the rest of my life.

“I am so lucky that I have a husband that accepts me for exactly who I am, my disability and everything. The whole me.”

She walked down the aisle with some help and it was amazing to see everyone having their blindfolds on as they stood and tried to soak everything in.

She continued: “I really believe in the philosophy that we are all just small beings and atoms on this massive planet and Stephen taught me that you can love and hate your disability equally, and that’s a truly beautiful thing.”

Even though this wasn’t a typical wedding or a walk down the aisle that is usually seen, it was something that was unique to her. She said that the wedding day is about the bride and groom, and everything needed to feel right.
