Tears of love! Woman wedded man due to die in ten days.

Behind every couple's wedding day there are countless emotions telling their story. But Caroline Benson's beautiful wedding photos tell a story that's arguably more emotional than most.

Caroline and her partner Pete Luscombe, from South Wales, took just five days to plan their wedding.

Ten days later, Pete passed away.


Family: Caroline and Pete with Hannah, Rhys and Abigail.

The couple had met in October 2009 through scouting in Merthyr Tydfil.

But according to source, on New Year's Eve in 2013, Pete was diagnosed with a particularly aggressive form of Germ cell cancer.

Pete bravely battled the cancer for nine months - with high-dose chemotherapy and stem cell treatment.

On September  12th, the couple received heartbreaking and tragic news: Pete's cancer has spread to his chest and brain. It was terminal.

However, out of the heartbreaking prognosis came something positive. Encouraged by their children, Pete and Caroline decided to marry.

And with the extraordinary help of family and their generous community, the wedding came together in less than a week.

Caroline recalls: "The day itself wasn't like a wedding day, and neither of us were nervous.

"It wasn't easy getting through the vows, we both knew he didn't have long, and most of our family and friends had tears throughout.

"I had become his carer so washing and dressing was down to me - not a very conventional wedding!"

She credits her sister Anita for being the 'backbone' of the operation, organizing and assisting in all the wedding activities

Their local scouting community also came together to help with Caroline and Pete's big day.

One scout mum made them a cake, and other scout leaders and parents provided flowers, a singer for the reception and a video.

Sadly, the couple had only 10 days as legally married husband and wife before Pete passed away on October 1.

Describing her late husband, Caroline said he was "a fun-loving man, who'd help people out if he could, a good friend and loving father. He always had a smile on his face and that is what everyone remembers him by.

"He even sorted his funeral out: having flowers only from kids, charity donations, songs, what he wanted to wear and bright colors for people there."
