Because he could no longer lead her to the altar, a British woman had her father's ashes incorporated into her wedding manicure.
Most bridal couples would like mother and father to chew off one or two tears at their own wedding. But unfortunately life doesn't always turn out the way you imagine it. And yet it has to go on. This is how a British bride saw it, who lost her father just a few months before her wedding.
Since her father would have led her to the altar, her cousin Kirsty Meakin, who works as a nail designer, came up with something very special: She designed a special manicure in which a small pile of the ashes should be incorporated. She then posted the tutorial on YouTube, where she received thoroughly positive comments for her work:
Under the video, Meakin wrote that it was a very emotional day for her and her cousin Charlotte - but in a good, hopeful way: "I wanted Charlotte to have her father with her. I came up with the idea, Mick's Ashes to use in her nails. That way he would be there holding her hand while she walks down the aisle."
Four weeks after the wedding, when the nails had grown out, the nail designer wanted to carefully remove them: "You can then keep them as a nice reminder of the day."
