Bridal designer, Sanyukta Shrestha, spreads a little joy during this difficult time, surprising an NHS bride-to-be…
Sanyukta Shrestha decided to surprise one of her brides with a special gift, on what should have been her wedding day. Bride-to-be Donna, an NHS nurse, was presented with a special Visor Veil to wear to work on the day, after her wedding had to be postponed.
The designer wrote on Instagram:
This is a unique story of our lovely bride Donna (a nurse) today meant to be celebrating her WEDDING DAY instead she marries her duty and Lobby becomes her aisle while serving the nation. We just wished her day to be as special as possible. I am so touched when I receive her photos that she walks with pride in our special Visor Veil and smiles with paper flowers. This is going to be the most memorable day for her husband-to-be and her loved ones once this storm is over
Sanyukta and team have been making PPE – ‘face shields’ for frontline healthcare professionals and Masks For keyworkersalongside the ‘Nepal Covid-19 relief project’since earlier this month, and Sanyukta says the veil she created for Donna has more symbolic meaning than just a traditional veil. The ‘Visor veil’ Sanyukta created has wedding values and at the same time is designed to protect the bride who is a Nurse.
Bride-to-be Donna said:
I loved wearing my headdress today, it made the day really special. All my colleagues completely spoilt me and the Visor veil was the absolute cherry on the cake. Thank you.
