The Vow

Ed Sheeran sends message to paralysed fan who learnt to walk for her wedding day

Tracy Henrickson defied paralysis in order to walk down the aisle unaided on her big day.

Despite suffering from Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, the-34-year-old vowed that she would walk down the aisle to say 'I Do' to  her long term love Glynn.

Tracy also made a "little wish" that is she walked down the aisle by herself, she hoped Ed Sheeran could be there to play a song while she had her first dance.


Keen to make it happen, Tracy's mum launched a campaign to gain Ed's attention and hoped he would come to the wedding.

The campaign inspired local businesses to help too, and they donated their time to help with Tracy's hair, make-up and food.

Due to touring, Ed was unavailable to attend and watch as Tracy walked down the aisle on the arm of her dad.

But, he did send his message via a video.

 ‘Hey Tracy I’m so sorry I can’t be there to perform on your special day, I’m currently away in Canada…I think. I’m not sure! But I hope you and Glynn have an amazing day, I hope you have fun at the party and don’t drink too much and make a lot of babies. Have fun with that! Have a good wedding, see you soon."
