Groom with terminal cancer collapses and dies at the altar as his bride walks down the aisle with their son



A groom with terminal cancer collapsed and died at the altar as his horrified bride walked down the aisle with their son.


Paul Wynn, 57, a father of eleven children from North Ayrshire, Scotland, collapsed at Saltcoats town hall last Friday just minutes before he was due to be wed to Alison Wynn, his partner of 21 years.


According to Mail Online, Mr. Wynn was originally diagnosed with cancer in May and was later told it had turned terminal eight days before he then decided to marry his partner Alison, 36.


The report said he was told he had six weeks and two months left to live by doctors, who told him his pancreatic cancer had spread to his liver and lungs.

On the day, which was supposed to their wedding, Wynn collapsed at the altar as Alison walked towards him with their son.


Alison described him as a 'fantastic dad' in a heartfelt tribute following his sudden death. She also revealed that her partner hadn't received any treatment before his death.


Alison 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.'


Alison left her home on the afternoon of Friday, June 25 feeling overwhelmed after organising a wedding at such short notice. She waited 10 minutes outside the town hall for a friend to bring her flowers after she forgot them at home.

After collecting them, she went upstairs where she saw the groom, who she said looked uncomfortable.


She explained: 'By the time I had gotten my flowers and went up the stairs. Everything seemed to be okay although Paul seemed to be a bit uncomfortable by this point and his kilt had been loosened a wee bit to help him feel more comfortable.Latest Post Follow us on Google newsTwitter and on Facebook
