Heartbreaking Images As Widower Reenacts Wedding Album With 3-Year-Old Daughter

How one husband keeps the memory of his late wife alive.

Ben Nunery lost his wife Ali to lung cancer in 2011, leaving behind a one-year-old daughter.

Ben and Ali bought their dream house just one day before their wedding. Excited to have purchased the house that they had planned to spend the rest of their lives together in, the newly weds decided it would be great to have their wedding pictures taken in there.

A lot changed in five years and recently Ben decided that it was time to move out.

Those short years were filled with grief and loss and iso the father-of-one thought it time to move on.

Before leaving Ben wanted honour the memory of his late wife and the memories in that home. Ali’s sister, who shot the original images for the couple’s wedding photo album, helped Ben capture those precious moments.

Another series of photographs were produced once again of an empty house, however the lady Ben was sharing the lens with this time round was his now 3-year-old daughter.

The pair reenacted the entire album.

Ben shared the images with this message: “This is a story about love.  The pain is nothing compared to the love that I feel for Ali and Olivia and that’s the story I want these pictures to tell to Olivia in the years to come and to anyone else that sees them.”

We’re not going to lie, we did cry, this is genuinely heartbreaking.
