They had promised to say yes no matter what. Elizabeth and Simon, respectively 31 and 36, would never have imagined getting married on a hospital bed in intensive care. Both with severe form of Covid-19, they left together in the same ambulance. “The nurse came to see me and she told me that Simon had to go to intensive care”, Says Lizzie Kerr.
Knowing that the couple were planning to get married, the nurse offered to have her at the hospital. The couple say yes and, four hours later, chose the nurse as a witness. “If there’s something you can do, even if it’s not a nurse’s job but it’s human, well, you have to give it to the patient.”Says Hannah Cannon. Simon O’Brien fought to see his wife again and finally exchange a newlywed kiss with her, a few days after the ceremony.
