Terminally-ill groom marries sweetheart in dream wedding after his transplanted lungs were rejected

As transplant patient Darren Easton kissed his bride in a moving hospital wedding ceremony, the 60 guests around them wept tears of joy – and overwhelming sadness.

Because the vows he took with sweetheart Lauren Pope, who suffers from the same dreadful disease, was made in a race against time.

Darren, 24, is receiving end-of-life care knowing cystic fibrosis has robbed them both of a future together after his transplanted lungs get into rejection. He has only weeks to live.

But the brave couple were determined to seal a romance that started when they were at the funeral of a fellow CF sufferer in 2015.
