This bride included her dead son in her wedding day in the sweetest way

Anna Thompson's son Lake died six months before her wedding day...

A mother whose son passed away six months before her wedding day has found a wonderful way to include him in her celebration.

Eight-year-old Lake Thompson lost his battle with leukemia six months before his parents tied the knot.

His mother described the 'unbearable' feeling of having wedding photos taken without her eldest child, and so she and photographers Brandy Angel and Paul Woodward came up with a wonderful idea to include Lake in the celebration.

In a just-married shot of Anna, her long-term boyfriend and their two children, the photographers added a faint image of Lake.

The resulting photograph - which Anna uploaded to a memorial Facebook page set up in her son's name - has had over 20,000 likes in less than 72 hours, as well as thousands of 'shares' across the globe.
