Hope, who has a brain tumour, always wanted to see her mummy and daddy get married.
This was evident very early on as Hope had planned the whole wedding, down to the very minor details! It had to be set in a garden, with a barbeque dinner, daddy and mummy both had to be in white and mummy absolutely had to arrive in a Mustang!! Hope also told us that she was to be the flower girl in a sparkly red dress.
The sun was shining down on Hope when her dream came alive on 14th May 2016. Over one hundred friends and family gathered at the Liddington Gardens to see Hope’s wish unfold. There were hand-made cupcakes, unicorns, popcorn, candy floss, face painting and a carnival theme organised for the day by Susi Liddington which was more than Hope could have ever dreamt of! It was a beautiful experience for Hope and for all of those in attendance.
