Bride puts dad’s ashes in nails to fulfil his wish of walking her down the aisle
A bride incorporated her father's ashes into her nails, so he could be with her in spirit on her wedding day.
Charlotte Walton, who hails from Stoke-On-Trent, Britain, lost her father Mick back in April, just months before she was due to marry her partner, Nick, in August.
Her father had been diagnosed with prostate cancer, which proceeded to spread to his lymph nodes and bones.
The 26-year-old old had dreamed of having her dad walk her down the aisle, and was naturally devastated that he couldn't be there on her big day. Luckily, Charlotte's cousin, Kirsty, was aware of how much Charlotte wanted her father to be with her, and came up with the idea of incorporating her father's ashes into her wedding day nails.
Kirsty made a video, which she later shared to YouTube, explaining how she created the nails, detailing that she had to sift through the ashes to locate small bits of bone fragment that could be used for the acrylics.
After the wedding, Charlotte's guests asked her what she planned to do with the nails after they came off, and she didn't choose to discard them given the sentimental value behind them. The newlywed decided to frame the acrylics, and display them at her home.
Well, how sweet that this bride found a way to have her father with her on her special day, after all.
