A terminally ill mum was married with just 36 hours' notice.

Tasha Burton and Daniel Corley got married at the Hospice of St Francis in Berkhamsted.

Tasha, 36, of Ladies Grove, St Albans, was only admitted to the hospice’s inpatient unit at 10am on Tuesday and at 1pm on Wednesday she and her fiancé Daniel Corley were married.

She said afterwards: “It was just lovely, absolutely amazing.

“I was just so taken aback by it all.

“People's generosity was absolutely stunning and getting it all organised in 36 hours was just incredible.

“I was so happy.

“Dan and I have known each other since May 2015 when we met at work, we got together in July on my birthday and six months later we were engaged.

“We knew it was love.

“Getting married is something we’ve always wanted to do so today really is the fulfilment of a dream and we can’t thank everyone enough.”

Mr Corley, 23, said: “It’s been the most amazing day - I don’t think I’ve ever seen Tash look so beautiful.”

Tasha found out she had just two weeks to live after a scan revealed that bowel cancer, which was first diagnosed in October 2017 – just six months after the couple’s son Alaric was born - had spread to her lungs, liver and lymph nodes.

Immediately, her best friend Kat Leyden, put an urgent request on Facebook through the Wedding Wishing Well Foundation - a charity which organises and funds weddings for the terminally ill – appealing for everything from a photographer, videographer and buffet to a wedding cake, venue stylist and flowers.

Within minutes, they were inundated with offers from businesses across Watford and Hertfordshire, providing everything needed for the special day totally free of charge.

Tasha walked up the ‘aisle’ of a marquee to James Arthur’s Say You Won’t Let Go, and was given away by her father David and her son Alaric.
