Devastated X Factor star Tom Mann held a memorial service for his late fiancée Dani Hampson, after she tragically passed away the morning of their wedding.
The 34-year-old musician – who appeared on the ITV talent show with his band Stereo Kicks in 2014 – was surrounded by close friends as they paid tribute to one’s mother.
On Instagram on Sunday (June 26), Tom retweeted a photo from a memorial picnic held in Dani’s honor.
The group gathered in a park with blankets and some attendees brought their children.
The photo was captioned: “Today is for our Dani.” Another group member also re-shared the photo, adding a red heart emoji.
Tom later posted a photo of himself and Dani on his Instagram Story. He wrote: “There are really no words to describe how much I miss you Dani. Forever & always.”
Dani died at the age of 34. She and Tom share an 8-month-old son, Bowie.
Dani died suddenly on Saturday morning, just hours before the couple tied the knot. Tom announced the heartbreaking news in an Instagram post.
He said he lost “the love of his life” on what was “the happiest day of their lives”.
Tom wrote: “My dear Dani – my best friend, my everything and more, the love of my life – passed away at dawn on Saturday, June 18.

“On what should have been the happiest day of our lives ended in irreparable heartbreak. I felt like I cried the whole ocean.
“We have never come to change; or have to say our vows, or dance our first dance, but I know you know that you are my whole world.”
The musician said that he will wear the wedding ring as a sign of his “unconditional love” for Dani.
Tom wrote: “I won’t make a mark on the parent you’ve become, but I promise I’ll do everything I can to raise Bowie the way we’ve always wanted to be.

“The most beautiful person inside and out. The most incredible soul. We have lost such a special person and I am sure that we are about to witness an abundant flood of love reflected. that.
“I will try to find peace in your messages and comments, but I am grieving right now and I will be for a long time.
“My dear Dani, the brightest light in any room, my world is nothing but darkness without you. I will miss you forever.”
