A woman from Thailand has 'married' her dead lover at his funeral after he died suddenly of a heart attack.

Nan Thippharat, from Chachoengsao province, held the unusual marriage ceremony and later posted pictures of it on her social media page.

The photos have been widely shared of the living bride and the dead groom, named Fiat.

She wrote on social media: 'I dreamed of our wedding. I saw us holding hands. Rest in peace. I love you, Fiat. Please know that our dream has come true.'

Her fiance Fiat's death came as a shock to loved ones as he had shown no visible signs of illness before succumbing to a sudden heart attack.

The marriage ceremony, which took place in the district of Phanom Sarakham in central Thailand's Chachoengsao Province, although moving, was not recognised under law.

Nan said: 'It was my way of paying tribute to him in this life because I know one day we will be together for eternity in the next one'

'I loved him with all my heart and I couldn't bear it when he was taken from me. He looked splendid on his wedding day - I know he would have liked it,' she said.
