A terminally-ill man married the love of his life in a dream bucket-list wedding after well wishers donated the entire ceremony.

Myles Harrison, 27, was diagnosed with a brain tumour at the age of 18 but his condition worsened and he was told by doctors that there was nothing more they could do to help him.

The news prompted Myles to pop the question to fiancee Liz, 29, in a ceremony that was entirely donated by well-wishers.

The couple had no plans at all for their big day, with the focus remaining on Myles' ongoing treatment until wedding planner Louise Hedges stepped in and organised everything including the venue, food, drink, hair, make up, transport, photography - and even a honeymoon.

Within two weeks the wedding was planned and the happy couple became Mr and Mrs on August 11 at Castle Hill in Filleigh, Devon.

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."

Louise, who publishes the North Devon Wedding Planner magazine, managed to organise for people to donate every element of the wedding free of charge.

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."

Both Myles and Liz are big rugby fans and season ticket holders at Exeter Chiefs and their rugby heroes even recorded special video messages for them.

Liz said she was overwhelmed by people's generosity.

She said: "It is amazing what they have managed to arrange in such a short space of time, and at such a very difficult time for us.

"It is absolutely incredible and I want to say a huge thank you, particularly to Louise and everyone at North Devon Hospice."
