A bride-to-be who has been wheelchair bound for over two years is learning to walk again in time for her wedding.

Thea Downey, 27, from London suffers from Ehlers–Danlos syndrome type 3 – a condition that affects her joints and mobility.

After being told she may never walk again, she was fitted with a custom-made leg brace November 9th.

A heart-warming video shows the moment Thea took her first steps in two and a half years.

Now she is having physiotherapy to be strong enough to walk down the aisle in June with fiancé Jakob Seger.

Thea, a former marketing consultant, said: “My life has been turned around.”
