Solomon Chau and Jenn Carter tied the knot in April, with their video going viral after the groom died following a battle with liver cancer
The wedding video of a Canadian couple has gone viral after the groom passed away from liver cancer last week.
Solomon Chau and Jennifer Carter were in the middle for planning their summer 2015 wedding when Solomon was delivered the heart-breaking news he had liver cancer.
Despite being told he would make a full recovery, in March this year the 26-year-old chef was told the illness had spread, with doctors dropping the bombshell he had only a few months to live. (In his obit on Canadian news site TheStar.com, Alex Alex Ballingall wrote: 'His doctors said he’d die, but Solomon Chau kept living. He’d make them laugh with happy antics, and they’d call him “superhuman"'.)
Determined to tie the knot as quickly as possible, Solomon and Jenn launched a GoFundMe page to enable them to marry ASAP, raising $52,000.
One month later, on April 11 2015, the pair had their dream wedding day.
After four-and-a-half months of marriage, Solomon passed away on 17 August, with his devestated wife writing on Facebook: "I'm forever in your debt for showing me what love really is all about, and we learned more about it at 26 than some will in a lifetime. You and I should have been able to live the next 60 years of our lives together, but I'm still forever thankful that God gave us eight incredible years".
The hearbroken bride added: "every girl dreams of growing up to marry a Solomon Chau".
In the days since Solomon's passing, the couple's beautiful wedding video has gone viral. The videographers who created the film described capturing Solomon and Jenn's wedding as the 'most memorable' day of their careers.
