Bride throws her wig instead of her bouquet

A wig is not what you would usually catch at a wedding reception!

But for bride and mother-of-four, Jamie Steinborn, she used the bouquet toss as a moment of defiance against her 16-month-long battle with cervical cancer.

After she wed her fiance John, her bridesmaids and friends stood expectantly behind her, ready to catch the bouquet.

Instead, she pulled off her wig, veil and all, and tossed it behind her as if it was her floral arrangement.

She said to Daily Mail: 'This was a once in a lifetime opportunity. I wanted to show everyone that no matter what life throws at me that everything will be ok."

"Yes, it was my wedding day and yes, I wore a wig, but I feel just as blessed and beautiful bald-headed. To me a bald head shows courage, the will to fight, the will to not let anything get you down."
