The Spirit Trustees were delighted to learn of the wedding of Tricia Lorenz, a patient at the North West Regional Spinal Injuries Centre (SCIC), who married her partner of four years, Steve McEntee at the centre.
Tricia, from Wrexham, has been a patient at the SCIC (based at Southport hospital) for seven months following a medical procedure in March 2016 that left her paralysed and a ventilator user.
Steve proposed to her shortly after and they were surrounded by family and friends as they said their vows.
Staff from the spinal centre where Tricia has been receiving care were also there to join in the celebrations.
The UK has 11 specialist spinal injury centres that provide lifelong care for the 1,000 newly spinal cord injured patients every year.
The centres provide specialist support and are valued highly by those who use the service.
