EMOTIONAL friends and family gathered at Chichester Crematorium to say farewell to a popular young woman who died from leukaemia on her wedding day.

Sophie Chandler, 21, passed away on November 1 at St Richard’s Hospital, Chichester.

The bride-to-be was set to marry her fiance Jason Mariner on the day she died. A community whipround raised £3,000 for her funeral.

Her mother Sylvia, from Bognor, said: ‘Every time you see a rainbow, you see her nice, smiling face.’
