A bride, a groom and maternity ward wedding

Updated: Mar 20

Sarit and Moshiko planned to get married in April 2020, but due to COVID-19 restrictions, they had to postpone their wedding until August. When the big day finally arrived, Sarit and Moshiko were busy with typical preparations: getting dressed and posing for photos. That’s when the wedding plans began to change. While the couple was being photographed, Sarit, who was six months pregnant with twins, realized that her water had broken. The couple rushed to Assuta Ashdod, where doctors told them that Sarit had to remain in the hospital until she gave birth.


Moshiko quickly arranged for an impromptu wedding inside the maternity ward. Meanwhile, guests who were already waiting for the happy couple in the wedding hall were told the bride and groom were not going to make it. Guests were still able to join the couple virtually, as the wedding ceremony was broadcast on a large screen in the hall. While the wedding may not have turned out exactly as planned, the day was unforgettable for everyone!
