A bride shared a very memorable and heartbreaking final dance with her father as he laid on his dying bed in hospital.

Dr. Lisa Pantoja (nee Wilson), was so determined to spend her wedding day with her father, who had a rare form of cancer, she conducted her wedding beside his hospital bed.

The beautiful bride first kissed her husband, Rob, before removing Dave Wilson's oxygen mask to kiss her dad.

It was then that she took the hands of her resolute father and began one of the most emotional wedding day dances you will ever experience.

She said: "I asked him, 'I said daddy I want to do my father-daughter dance with you.' He said, 'I can't dance and I said you don't have to. I want to dance with your hands."

Smiling father Dave was delighted to have given away his daughter on her big day and told his son-in-law what a lucky man he was.

"Rob, you're the lucky one. You won the lottery, you got my baby girl," he said.

In his final days, the proud father wrote on his Facebook page: "The best gift, a daughter could give. Congratulations Dr. Lisa Pantoja."

Sadly, Dave passed away a week after the video was posted.
