Myles Harrison, was diagnosed with a brain tumour at the age of 18.

When his condition worsened and doctors said there was nothing more they could do, Myles knew it was time to finally get married to the love of his life, Liz, 29.

The couple tied the knot in a bucket-list wedding at Castle Hill in Filleigh, Devon, with the entire ceremony donated by friends, family, and local businesses.

The big day was organised by wedding planner Louise Hedges and the venue, car, photography, cake, music and honeymoon were all given to them free of charge.

It was learning that his condition was terminal that spurred Myles into finally popping the question, which 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 organised a photoshoot on the balcony to celebrate.

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

But Louise Hedges stepped in to give the couple the best wedding she possibly could, entirely free of charge.

She organised everything within just two weeks and the couple made it official on 11 August.

Included in the special day was hair styling, makeup, gorgeous photography and videography, a proper wedding cake, a wedding breakfast and an evening buffet, ice cream for guests, transport to the venue, a photobooth, a dance floor and DJ, drinks at The Donkey Bar and a honeymoon at Lane Barton Dream Cottage in Devon.

Both Myles and Liz are huge rugby fans, so season ticket holders at Exeter Chiefs and their rugby heroes also recorded a special video message for the couple.

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.

Liz added: ‘It was a dream day and more, more than we expected.

‘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.
