Another couple, James and Evelyn Zapanta embodied the words in the traditional wedding vows, “In sickness and in health”, to a T as they said their vows in a hospital ward.
James, a former wedding photographer who was bedridden on 27th April because of liver cirrhosis, said his dying wish was to marry Evelyn, his live-in partner and mother to their 3 children.
His friends in the wedding industry along with his family pulled everything together to fulfil his dream. From the cake, to flowers, to outfits, everything was donated by friends and family to give the couple the perfect wedding.
The wedding pushed through on 3rd May in Chong Hua Hospital, where James was warded. Unfortunately, with his dying wish granted, he passed away the next day, 4th May, succumbing to his disease.
