The devastated family of a bride who died six days after her wedding have revealed their pain at still not knowing what happened to her.

She had been married to her childhood sweetheart Jason Nicholls, who she first met at school when she was 15, for just six days.

Her daughter Rebecca Jones, 23, from Hatton Cross, London, told MailOnline that Nicola was feeling under the weather the morning she left London for Fuerteventura, but assumed it was nothing serious.

The assistant manager, who works for a jeweller, is still looking for answers as she copes with her grief and honours her mother’s memory.

On the morning of September 11, Nicola said she wasn’t feeling well but sent a picture to her children and went on with the trip.

‘That afternoon she started to bring up blood and visited the local clinic, where she was told she was dehydrated and had a urine infection,’ said Rebecca.

Nicola was put on an IV drip for a few hours and went home for the evening once she felt better.

On the morning of Wednesday 12th, Nicola felt better and told her family she would be getting some sun. But later in the afternoon, she felt poorly again.

Worst Wedding Photos Ever? Disappointed Bride Shares Her Hilarious Wedding Photo Album

Wedding albums showcase the most beautiful moments of the big day, with romantic and well-timed shots of the adoring couple and their guests and venue.

But one bride has taken to Facebook to share a selection of her disappointing yet highly amusing wedding snaps that prove there is a very fine line between candid and unprofessional.

‘So, what do you do when you finally receive your actual wedding day photos and find yourself sorely disappointed in them?’ Bride Jaclyn Ying, from Singapore, wrote on Sunday.

‘Get angry? Check. Shed a few tears over them? Done. Post some of the best (of the worst) on social media for amusement? Absolutely!’

Mrs Ying and her husband purchased a wedding package that included photography from a ‘pretty reputable bridal shop’ and although they were told before they signed on that they couldn’t choose their photographer, were assured that the talent pool was consistent.

‘They looked alright, and so we signed on thinking, “okay la hor, how bad can they be” [sic],’ Mrs Ying wrote, adding that they were shown a portfolio beforehand.

The couple’s photographer then later posted an apology on Facebook, after being made aware of Jaclyn’s comments.

Jilted Bride Hosts Homeless People At Her Reception

A woman named Dana Olsen whose wedding was set for January 16th treated homeless people to a lavish reception and a fun day after her fiancee cancelled their wedding six weeks to the date.

The lavish wedding was approximated to have cost $32,000 an equivalent to sh.3.2 Million according to a source as written by the Daily Mail.

The bride could not get the money back from the caterers, interior designers and other suppliers so she decided to hold the reception for 150 homeless women and children from a nearby shelter.

As the news of her generosity spread, a few people decided to make the night more memorable.

A makeup and hair stylist came to glamour up the women, while others donated dresses and jewelry. The homeless were entertained by a live band as they were served sumptuous meals by caterers.

The bride was quoted saying “I wish I knew more myself, I just wanted to marry him. I didn’t care about the wedding stuff,” she told Kiro7’s Monique Ming Laven. Pretty much immediately I thought about the fact that my family had paid for almost the entire wedding, and I knew we wouldn’t be able to get most of it back,

“So after the shock of what had happened wore off, I started to think about what to do. It just felt really terrible and wasteful and awful to just have all that money and this beautiful event that wasn’t going to happen. I just couldn’t stand the thought of it being wasted,” she told KING5.

Though Dana still wished it was her wedding day, she doesn’t regret the decision she made.

“I wish it were going to be my wedding, but if I’m going to have a really bad weekend, at least I want to help someone else have a really good day. “In some small way, I can take this horrible thing and try to turn it into something positive,” Dana added.

Many couples celebrate their wedding day with family and friends eating, dancing and dining together ad it’s the way it has always been.

However a couple in Syria chose to celebrate their nuptials by inviting 4,000 refugees to share their big day with them.

Fethullah Üzümcüoğlu and Esra Polat married in the southern Turkish city of Kilis and offered all the food intended for their wedding party to displaced families living in poverty nearby.

Traditionally Turkish weddings last about three days culminating in a huge banquet on the final night.

The newlyweds chose to donate all their families savings for the party to share their celebrations with refugees living on the Syrian border.

The generous idea came from groom’s father, Ali Üzümcüoğlu who shared it with his son.

He says that he’s happy his son accepted it and that they started their new happy journey with such a selfless action.

In total, there are four million Syrian refugees who had fled the country in what the UN described as the worst crisis of its kind in a generation.

Almost eight million people are displaced within the country, according to the UN.

Bride Esra was delighted to be able to share her special day with those in need and says that she was shocked  by the idea but afterwards I was won over by it and had such a wonderful experience sharing with people in need.

Bride walks out of nuptials after groom failed a math test

 An Indian bride walked out of her wedding ceremony after the groom failed to solve a simple math problem, police said Friday.

The bride tested the groom on his math skills and when he got the sum wrong, she walked out.

The question she asked: How much is 15 plus six? His reply: 17

The incident took place late Wednesday in Rasoolabad village near the industrial town of Kanpur in northern Uttar Pradesh state, local police officer Rakesh Kumar said Friday.

The groom’s family tried persuading the bride to return, but she refused. She said the groom had misled them about his education.

The bride’s father said groom’s family kept them in the dark about their sons poor education.

Local police mediated between the families and both sides returned all the gifts and jewelry that had been exchanged before the wedding, Kumar said.

Bride marries wedding guest after groom gets an epileptic attack

A bride decided to change her groom and picked a guest to marry her instead after her husband to be had a seizure before they exchanged vows.

Jugal Kishore, 25, reportedly fell to the ground during the traditional exchange of “varmala” flower garlands in the northern town of Rampur.

His illness was a shock to his wife-to-be, 23-year-old Indira, who was apparently furious that she and her family had not been told of Mr Kishore’s epilepsy.

Instead of calling the wedding off, she quickly chose wedding guest Harpal Singh, her sister’s brother-in-law, to replace him.

Casually dressed in jeans and a leather jacket, he accepted, the Times of India reported.

After the swap, the wedding ceremony continued as planned until Mr Kishore returned from hospital.

Shocked at returning to his own wedding to find his fiancée celebrating her marriage to someone else, he and his relatives reportedly pleaded with Indira to reverse her decision.

When diplomacy failed, the family allegedly resorted to violence and entered into a brawl involving plates and cutlery.

Mr Kishore’s family later filed a complaint at the local police station but withdrew it after older relatives intervened.

An official at the station, told the Times of India two wedding guests were briefly arrested.

Both families have amicably resolved the matter and the complaints have since been withdrawn.
