Childhood sweethearts Joan and Craig Lyons have finally tied the knot on April 15 at the city’s Isla Gladstone Conservatory.
But their wedding wasn’t a typical wedding.
The brave bride from Huyton, Liverpool, shaved off her hair during their wedding reception as a way to show her love for her terminally ill husband.
In August 2015, Craig was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer and was given nine to twelve months to live. However, that did not stop him from proposing to previously-married Joan 18 months ago.
“I fell in love with her as soon as I set my eyes on her when we were 14,” Craig shared with The Daily Mail.
“Just thinking how thankful and privileged I was to be able to do this,” she said.
As for her husband, Craig—he loves it.
“It was obviously the first time I had seen Joan without her hair and she looked beautiful, absolutely stunning,” he said.
Photographers Kim and Ant from Struth Photography were able to capture this beautiful moment.
