A terminally ill teenage girl crossed the top item off her bucket list by marrying her childhood sweetheart.
Amber Snailham and Callum Firks, both 17, tied the knot after planning a huge wedding in a matter of weeks.
They were given a helping hand by their families and friends, who held a massive fundraising drive and managed to raise £6,000 – with the help of strangers.
The couple have been together for a year but have been best friends for years since meeting at Bedminster Down School.
Amber and Callum said ‘I do’ at a ceremony at St Peter’s Church in Bishopsworth, Bristol.
The bride, wearing a fashionable strapless dress, was glowing, while Callum looked every inch the pride groom.
Amber was diagnosed with bone cancer aged 13 and has been treated at Bristol Children’s House.
She has had surgery and six gruelling months of chemotherapy that ended in July.
However, in October Amber and her family were given the devastating news that the cancer had spread to her brain.
Her new mother-in-law Vicky Bishop said doctors did not say how long they expect Amber to live, but it could be ‘months’.
But the top item on Amber’s bucket list was marrying Callum.
Vicky, Callum’s mum, said: ‘They are a brilliant couple. They are inseparable.
‘Callum decided to propose after hearing the news. They had discussed marriage before.
‘He said he wanted to get engaged, even though it’s bad times with money.
