A beautiful photo of a bride breastfeeding her toddler during her wedding ceremony is going viral for all the right reasons.
Your wedding day is meant to be the one day where everything is all about the bride and groom, but if you’ve got children, parenting duties will often have to carry on regardless.
Just ask Laura Harvey.
The mum and her now husband had shocked their parents by announcing a surprise wedding that morning, but weren’t sure how their daughter would be during the ceremony.
“My almost 16-month-old daughter was teething, overwhelmed and overstimulated and was incredibly upset,” Laura wrote in a post shared to the Breastfeeding Mama Talk Facebook page.
“I decided I was going to sit down and breastfeed her throughout the entire ceremony because Elle needed to know I was there for her and needed the comfort. She listened and was there for the whole thing!”
Sharing the image which captured the touching mother/daughter moment, Laura went on to explain that even though the registrar had offered to repeat the ceremony when Elle wasn’t nursing, the couple were thrilled about how things had unfolded.
“We wouldn’t have had it any other way!” she continued. “Boobs save the day ladies, even on your wedding day!”
Since sharing, the stunning image has been liked 3.4K times and has really touched a nerve with other parents who were quick to praise the empowering post for helping to normalise breastfeeding.
“This us just awesome! Married while breastfeeding! Congratulations!” one woman wrote.
“This photo made me cry you guys look so happy truly beautiful moment for you and your family congratulations on getting married,” another women added.
Other mums shared images and stories of them nursing at their own weddings.
“Love this!!! I nursed at my wedding, but not during my ceremony,” one woman shared.
This isn’t the first time an image of a bride breastfeeding on her big day has taken the Internet by storm.
Beth Johnson, 33, from Didsbury was pictured nursing her newborn while in the middle of hair and beauty prep for her big day.
Thankfully, wedding photographer Jonny Draper was on hand to capture the touching moment Beth breastfed her baby son, George, as a make-up artist got the bride ready.
And just like Laura’s, the stunning image attracted thousands of likes and received hundreds of comments from fans touched by the moment.
“Very powerful and gorgeous! We need more of this,” one woman wrote.
“One of the most beautiful pics I’ve ever seen. Ur little baby looking up at u,” added another.
“What a truly wonderful moment to capture, the pure grace and elegance is stunning,” another fan commented.
