Yesterday ITV News brought you the story of a young woman with cancer trying to raise enough money to marry her carer before her condition gets worse.

Since then, many people have come forward with generous offers to help the young couple from Wiltshire.

We've fielded offers of a free bridal dress, photoshoot and videographer.

28-year-old Laura Saull has stage four cancer, which has spread to her spine, lungs, ovaries and brain. She and her partner Sam Vickery are keen to get married as soon as possible - and are relying on crowdfunding to help them.

Thanks to your generosity, the total has risen by more than a thousand pounds overnight, and the couple say they now have enough to pay for the big day.

The couple have expressed their gratitude to donators.

We're so grateful for how much has been given. It really will allow us to have the magical day we wanted.

The parents of a five-year-old boy from Devon have fulfilled his dying wish by getting married at his bedside at Bristol Children's Hospital.

Corey Edwards passed away last night, but not before seeing his mum and dad make history. Craig and Jemma Edwards tied the knot last week after being given special permission so that Corey, who had a severe heart condition, could be part of their day.
