Jess Redden and Rob Kearney are one step closer to their wedding day, but ahead of their big day, Jess has revealed that she’s beginning to feel ‘waves of panic’.
The pair were due to be married during the summer of this year, but then decided to bring the wedding date forward to November of 2020, after Jess’ father Brian, unfortunately, became ill.
At the time, Jess was hoping her father would be able to walk her down the aisle, but he sadly passed away from his illness in September of 2020.
Now, as their wedding day approaches, Jess has revealed that she’s beginning to feel ‘waves of panic’ and can’t help but be upset over the absence of her dad.
Opening up on Instagram, Jess wrote, “Although it’s the most exciting and happy day of your life I can’t help but stop the waves of panic and sadness that come – I just wanted to share this personal experience for any other brides in a similar position – it’s normal so don’t berate yourself – be gentle & kind to yourself no matter what you’re feeling.”
Before adding: “You’ll have your man or woman to lean on and help you.”
Jess will be carrying a photo of her father in a locket on her wedding bouquet, so her dad will still be with her walking down the aisle.
