Groom dies at the altar as his bride is walking down the aisle with their son – Ladun Liadi’s Blog
A bride has been left heartbroken after her future husband died at the altar just minutes before they were due to be married.
Dad-of-eleven Paul Wynn, from North Ayrshire, Scotland, collapsed at the wedding venue as his family tried desperately to save his life.
The terminally-ill 57-year-old had been about to fulfil his dream of wedding his partner of 21 years, Alison Wynn.
She was already walking down the aisle at Saltcoats town hall with their son on Friday when tragedy struck, reports Ayrshire Live.
His devastated 38-year-old fiancée described her partner and father-of-five of their children as a “fantastic dad” in a heartfelt tribute following his sudden death.
Paul had been told by doctors he had cancer eight days before he died and the couple decided to race to tie the knot.
Medics had broken the terrible news to Paul that the disease was in his pancreas and that it had spread to his liver and lungs.
He was given anywhere between six weeks and two months left to live.
The Stevenston couple brought forward their nuptials in a bid to get hitched in the short time they had left together but, tragically, their final wish wasn’t fulfilled.
Alison – who changed her surname by deed poll a few years ago – said the heartbreaking event has left her family devastated.
And she said: “If I had known we didn’t have long I would’ve tried to arrange the wedding for the beginning of the week. He never actually got any treatment.”
