A gorgeous memory.

Kelsey Parker has celebrated her first wedding anniversary with her late husband Tom Parker since he passed away.

The 30 year old married The Wanted singer in July 2018. The two later welcomed two children together, daughter Aurelia, three, and son Bodhi, 22 months.

Tom sadly died from terminal brain cancer in March of this year at the age of 33, and had been diagnosed not long after the couple’s son was born.

Kelsey has now shared a stunning video of her and her husband on their wedding day.

The mum of two has been keeping Tom’s memory alive by sharing happy clips of him since he died, as well as planning charity events and erecting a plaque in his honour.

Taking to Instagram on their fourth anniversary, she shared a video montage of the two on their happy day, with clips of them singing at the top table, dancing and Kelsey singing with her bridesmaids.

Writing directly to Tom in the caption, Kelsey said: “Never did I ever think this is how I’d be celebrating our 4 year wedding anniversary Tom.

“Most people wish to have their wedding day again, I’d settle for a hug.”

One sweet moment showed the two dancing and singing with their arms around each other, clasping hands and looking into each other’s eyes.

She continued: “Miss you immensely and it’s not getting easier but as I promised I would, I’m here, staying positive, toasting you and us and staying grateful for the time we had.

“Our wedding day truly was the best day of my life and I’m holding on to every memory of it. Love you Tom. Thank you for choosing me to be Mrs Parker.

“Positive Parkers Forever.”

Announcing Tom’s death on Instagram, Kelsey wrote: “It is with the heaviest of hearts that we confirm Tom passed away peacefully earlier today with all of his family by his side.

“Our hearts are broken. Tom was the centre of our world and we can’t imagine life without his infectious smile and energetic presence.

“We are truly thankful for the outpouring of love and support and ask that we all unite to ensure Tom’s light continues to shine for his beautiful children.

“Thank you to everyone who has supported in his care throughout. He fought until the very end.”
