Bride-to-be who died 3 months before tying knot buried in wedding dress

A "bubbly" bride-to be who died suddenly just three months before she was due to get married has been buried in her wedding dress.

Jessica Morrell, 32, had only picked up the dress a week before she died at home from a heart attack on June 1.

Her mum Olga and boyfriend were with her and gave CPR, but they were unable to revive her.

Heartbroken Olga said Jessica, from Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, was "so excited" to be tying the knot with her partner of eight years in September, YorkshireLive reports.

"She had many friends from all walks of life. She spent a lot of time with friends and doing voluntary work with elderly people at Huddersfield Town Hall where they loved her," she said.

"She was a lovely daughter. From the moment she was born, my life changed. Everything was 100mph. She was a force of nature. She was so full of life and lived life to the full.

"She had a lot of confidence and everybody loved her."

She added: "She was so excited about the wedding. She was nervous but excited. She really knew what she wanted. It is all she dreamed of.

"She had been going out with her boyfriend for eight years. We buried Jessica in her wedding dress."

Olga said 75 people had attended the wake, which was held at the same venue Jessica was due to be married on September 3.

She said many people from the school she attended had been in touch to express their sadness and how much Jessica had meant to them.

"Teachers have been in touch and have sent cards and said what a wonderful, caring girl she was."

Friends also paid tribute to Jessica.

Sharryl Hardcastle said: "She was lovely. She was very bubbly and she loved her perfumes.

"She used to text me all the time, asking me if I had bought any new perfumes and if I would post her a picture.

"She loved going to (Huddersfield) Town Hall on a Tuesday, before lockdown, to a group for the elderly where she met lots of people and looked after them."
