Grieving bride-to-be wears wedding dress to funeral after fiancé killed in crash

A grieving bride-to-be whose fiancé was killed in a horrific car crash hours before they were due to be married wore her wedding dress to his funeral to say a heartbreaking goodbye.

Myles ‘Miley’ Harty, 20, from Askeaton in Limerick was tragically killed when the car he was travelling hit a pole around 1am at Cragmore last Saturday, reports The Irish Mirror.

His future wife Kate Quilligan's world was turned upside down on the very day that should have been the happiest of her life.

On Tuesday Kate and Myles' loved ones buried him after a funeral service at St Mary’s Church, Askeaton, the same church that the pair were due to be married in.

A video showed a grieving Kate, stood between her parents, wearing her wedding dress and holding her wedding bouquet outside a house with a photo of Myles behind her.

Her dad said to the camera: “Myles this is all Kate wanted her whole life, Miley Harty. She got dressed and she is going into you one last time.”

He then says: “Miley, I will never forget you, you are the boss,” as he leans in to kiss his daughter.

After the funeral Kate paid tribute to Miley, she wrote: "Hardest day of my life today, but I know you’re with me every step of the way.
