Groom gets wed in 3 days so his dying nan can be there

Tender moment:
Luke and Abi
arranged their
wedding at hospice
so his nan Vera
Robertson could
witness big day

A COUPLE hastily arranged their nuptials in three days so the groom’s terminally ill nan could see her grandson marry the love of his life.

Luke Hinojosa, 24, and Abi Morgan, 27, were due to wed in June before lockdown hit. They rearranged the ceremony for May next year but brought it forward when told Vera Robertson, who has been battling myeloma cancer since 2017, might not live long enough to witness their big day.

The 72-year-old was appointed ring bearer and the couple held the service at St Barnabas Hospice, in Lincoln, where she is a patient, so she could watch them walk down the aisle.

Bricklayer Luke said: ‘Getting married in front of my nan made my year. She was delighted and loved every moment.’
