Bride adds dad's ashes to her nails so he can 'walk her up the aisle'
"It meant everything to have him there in my own special way."
A bride has fulfilled her father's dying wish of walking her down the aisle by having his ashes put in her nails for her wedding.
Charlotte Walton was able to tie the knot with her dad Mick close to her after losing him to prostate cancer in April.
"I was always a huge daddy’s girl," she told Unilad.
"I was heartbroken when he lost his battle because I knew how much he wanted to see us marry, I wanted him to be there but it wasn’t meant to be."
Charlotte was determined to include him in her wedding so she turned to her cousin Kristy, a nail technician. They came up with the idea of putting his ashes into Charlotte's acrylic nails for her big day.
Kristy took bone fragments from the ashes and attached them to the tips of the nails – check out how she did this in a Youtube video here.
Charlotte said it felt like her dad was holding her hand as she married her partner Nick.
"I knew it wasn’t the same as him really being there, but it was as close as we could get," she said.
"It meant everything to have him there in my own special way, I married Nick, who I have two children with and I know Dad will always be watching over us."
