Dying man, 27, marries love of his life at wedding funded entirely by donations

A dying man married the love of his life at a wedding entirely funded by donations from friends and well-wishers.

Myles Harrison, 27, and his fiancee Liz, 29, tied the knot after six years together.

The dream wedding was organised by local wedding planner Louise Hedges and everything – including the venue, car, photography, cake, music and honeymoon – was given to them free of charge, reports Devon Live.

Myles was diagnosed with a brain tumour at the age of 18 and last year his condition changed for the worst.

Having undergone numerous operations and treatments, doctors delivered the tragic news that nothing more could be done to treat his tumour.

It was then Myles decided to pop the question to girlfriend Liz, something he did at North Devon Hospice's bedded unit in Barnstaple.

Myles said: "We're at the point where unfortunately there's nothing that can be done.

"I've always wanted to marry Liz, ever since we got together I knew she was the one.

"It was so great (at the hospice) that I decided it would be a great place to do it.

"I went down on one knee and proposed to Liz."

The hospice nurses came in after Myles had popped the question with champagne, flowers and strawberries and even organised a photoshoot on the balcony to celebrate the moment.

The couple had no plans at all for their big day, with the focus remaining on Myles' ongoing treatment for some complex symptoms.

It was at this point Louise Hedges decided to give them the best day she possibly could – and all for free.

Louise Hedges, who publishes the North Devon Wedding Planner magazine, managed to supply the entire day for the happy couple including a stunning venue, food, drink, hair, make up, transport, photography – and even a honeymoon!

Within just two weeks the wedding was planned and the happy couple became Mr and Mrs on August 11.

Myles said: "How on earth they managed to sort everything out and do what they did in such a short period of time – they are amazing, amazing people.

"We can't believe what they've done and how much they've improved our lives."
