 Wedding Re-creation by Wife Helps Man to Regain Memory

A wedding re-creation has brought back all the memories of a married man who lost his memory in an accident.

Accident victim David Stuart's memory was regained after wife Valerie re-created her wedding day to make her husband remember everything.


Valerie was disturbed when David woke from a coma after an accident in 1984 with no idea who she or their two grown-up sons were.

For the next 15 years she showed him their wedding pictures to try and recall his memory but nothing worked.

Finally in an attempt to give her now 65-year-old husband a day to remember she re-staged their wedding on their 40th anniversary. And after they renewed their vows, it all came back to Stuart.

"The hairs on the back of my neck stood on end. Standing at the altar saying 'I do', I looked at Valerie and memories of our first wedding day came rushing back as clear as day," Retired engineer David said.

"Just being with all the people we loved and seeing how beautiful Valerie looked brought it all back to me. Things just started clicking into place," he added.

"When David finally woke up he said to me, 'Who are you?' I said, 'I'm your wife' and pointed to my wedding ring. But he didn't have a clue. I was heartbroken," 65-year-old Valerie said.

"But I was desperate for him to remember something of our wedding. It had been the happiest day of my life. It was my mission to jog his memory somehow," Valerie added.
