We never know how much time we have left with our family members, especially the elderly ones. Hence, with that in mind, a 25-year-old beautiful woman from Chengdu, China decided to pose for a series of heartwarming photos in a wedding gown with her grandfather.
Fu Xuewei said that she does not have a plan to get married anytime soon as she wanted to focus on building her career first but she is not sure if her 87-year-old grandfather will be around to see her walking down the aisle with the love of her life.
Fu told ET Today that the idea struck her when her grandfather, Fu Qiquan was admitted to the hospital due to a cerebral stroke
It was the second time he got a stroke in the past two years
After the stroke attack, her grandfather had to stay in the hospital for three months. He also had a history of heart diseases.
Fu told that her grandfather may not have much time left in this world and fearing that he will not be around to attend her wedding in the future, Fu then decided to arrange for a wedding shoot with him
The ‘pre-wedding’ shoot which was taken in December last year shows Fu in a long, white wedding dress with her grandfather dressed in a dapper suit
The shoot also sees Fu walks down the aisle with her grandfather
She said: “My grandfather would be the one to give me away on my wedding.”
“Because I don’t know if he could live long enough to see that, I wanted to make sure he could do that now.”
Fu’s deep love towards her grandfather is unsurprising since he was the one who brought her up after Fu’s parents got divorced when she was just ten years old
Fu stayed with her grandparents after her parents’ divorce until she left China to further her studies in Switzerland and Singapore when she was 18 years old.
She has always had a close relationship with her grandparents and has always treated them as her close friends.
Even though her grandfather is a ‘macho man’, he has always spoilt her
Fu added that she hoped that through the photos, she will be able to show what her grandfather looks like to her future husband and children.
Their photos have attracted thousands of praises and moved the public’s hearts since they became viral on the internet.
