The ceremony took place on the weekend of March 20/21 at a COVID ward in the hospital at Smoluchowskiego street in Gdańsk. After the wedding, the spokesperson passed on the bride's words of gratitude to the hospital management for help and allowing the ceremony to happen.

"I personally, and also on behalf of my now husband, would like thank from the bottom of my heart to the Chairwoman, as well as the whole Board for allowing us to get married (...) Due to my husband's serious condition, we were determined to do it as soon as possible. We're even more grateful that it happened so quickly" - the bride wrote.

The hospital staff also got involved in the ceremony. They decorated the room with inflated single-use gloves which served as balloons. One of the nurses served as a witness, while another one was taking pictures.
