When one of her closest friends couldn't attend her wedding owing to coronavirus limitations, a Canadian bride was blown away when she arrived via hologram. Due to travel limitations, Brittany Smith Gallant's best friend and bridesmaid Sarah Redington, who resides in London, was unable to attend her wedding.

Jeffery Gallant contacted a business to construct a 3D hologram of Sarah to play during the ceremony after seeing his bride-to-be distraught. Isn't that lovely?

And it's safe to say Brittany was taken aback by the unexpected turn of events.

Before introducing hologram Sarah, Jeffery told the guests: "I think everyone here knows how important London is to Brittany, and it's also home to many of her closest friends, some who, because of Covid restrictions, unfortunately, couldn't physically be here with us tonight.”

"Without further ado, I'd like to introduce you to one of Brittany's bridesmaids from London, Sarah Redington."

Brittany looked completely shocked by the special surprise, saying: "Oh my god, this is incredible."

To become a hologram, Sarah had to dress up in her bridesmaid gown and arrive at a London studio at 3 a.m. to compensate for the time difference between the UK and Canada.

Larry O'Reilly, chief executive officer at ARHT Media Inc, explained: "We capture her on a 4K camera from a video perspective.”

"We also capture her audio and we take that information and we put it into our server where we encrypt it and we compress it and we send it over the common internet.”

"And then it's played back onto a screen, which is a holographic screen where the video file hits that screen and is reflected the audience."

He added: "Your brain is telling you they're in the room with you and that's when you create presence and it changes the emotional engagement and communication in a very meaningful way."

Speaking after the wedding, Brittany added: "When that surprise happened of the hologram, it was, as I've said, it was the cherry on top for sure, but it was just so special because I, like, physically saw her there, although it was just particles.”

"But it was really special, really special."
