For many mothers in the world, it is always a feeling of absolute joy and fulfillment when they are able to witness the wedding ceremony of their daughters. A deceased woman, however, outsmarted death with her heartwarming gesture.
A woman identified as Emma, who hails from Kibworth Beauchamp in Leicestershire, has warmed the internet with her special story.
According to reports by BBC News, Emma had gotten engaged to her beloved in 2016 with her loved ones in attendance. Fate would, however, have it otherwise, as one month after the ceremony; her mother was diagnosed with terminal cancer and passed away in 2017.
In an unexpected development, when the bride-to-be, who is set to get married in August to her fiancé, Richard, received her wedding shoes, she discovered that her mother had secretly made payment for the pair before she passed away.
Even more surprising was the fact that Emma's mom wrote a secret message addressed to her daughter, hidden underneath the shoes.
The message read: "Wanted you to have a gift from me on your wedding day. Your wedding shoes are my gift to you. Hope you have a magical day. Lots and lots of love and big hugs, MUM."
Speaking to the BBC, she disclosed that it has been so hard planning the wedding without her mother. She also added that her husband-to-be had been aware of her mother’s secret plan.
She said: "It's been so hard planning a wedding without having her with me, and I have had lots of tears."

"I had absolutely no idea, my fiancé knew about it. It was just an absolute shock. I pulled out the one shoe and I saw part of the message and I couldn't think who it would be.”
According to the report, when the young lady realised that the shoes and message were from her mother, she had become speechless and broke down into tears.
