Newly-wed Mariola Michalowski, 38, died in her sleep just hours after she married her 32-year-old husband Krzysztof, known as Kris by his friends and family.
The couple, originally from Poland, had two young children together, and had only finished celebrating at their wedding reception hours before Mrs Michalowski's untimely death.
Following the tragedy, well-wishers have donated more than £6,000 to Mr Michalowski to help him meet the costs of paying for the wedding and his wife's funeral.
