Brad and Dani's moving tribute to tragic son at their wedding

Teammates and rivals of former Liverpool goalkeeper Brad Jones gathered for his wedding which included a tribute to his late son.

Jones (33) tied the knot last week with model Dani Lawrence, who carried a photograph of Jones' son Luca who died of leukaemia in 2011 aged six - and the couple lit six candles in his memory.

"That was the hardest part, but we were so glad that we did it," Dani told Hello! Magazine.

"It was a quiet, reflective, very personal moment that Brad and I shared together and it was really important to us both that we had that. Although Luca is no longer here, he will always be a huge part of our family."

The couple were joined on their big day by former Liverpool players Glen Johnson and Charlie Adam as well as Stoke City's Stephen Ireland and former Bolton Wanderers star Fabrice Muamba who retired from the game after he collapsed following a cardiac arrest during an FA Cup match three years ago.
