Groom, 57, with terminal cancer collapses and dies at the altar

A groom with terminal cancer collapsed and died at the altar as his horrified bride walked down the aisle with their son. 

Father-of-eleven Paul Wynn, 57, from North Ayrshire, Scotland, collapsed at Saltcoats town hall last Friday just minutes before he was due to be wed to Alison Wynn, his partner of 21 years. 

Mr Wynn was originally diagnosed with cancer in May but had only been told it had turned terminal eight days before - prompting him and his partner Alison, 36, to tie the knot before he died. 

He was given between six weeks and two months left to live by doctors, who told him his pancreatic cancer had spread to his liver and lungs. 

However, he collapsed just as Alison – who changed her surname by deed poll a few years ago – walked towards him during their wedding with first-aiders unable to revive him.

Alison described him as a 'fantastic dad' in a heartfelt tribute following his sudden death.

She also revealed that her partner hadn't received any treatment before his death. 

Reliving last week's tragedy, Alison left her home in the afternoon overwhelmed after organising a wedding at such short notice.

She waited 10 minutes outside the town hall for a friend to bring her flowers after she forgot them at home. 

After collecting them, she went upstairs where she saw the groom, who she said looked uncomfortable.  

She added: 'He had actually been wheeled up in an office chair into the lift and taken up the stairs as he had no energy to get up to the room. He was out of breath and struggling from what I was told.'
