A woman in the USA turned her cancelled wedding into a special lunch for underprivileged kids.

Yiru Sun, who lives in New York, was meant to get married on the weekend  with a glamorous wedding reception planned in  the city’s wealthy Upper East Side, however, the marriage fell through two months ago after she refused to sign a prenuptial agreement with her former partner, CBS New York reports.

Sun was left with an $8,000 non-refundable deposit for the reception venue and catering, but with no wedding, she decided the party should still happen – but in a different form.

She transformed the reception into a lunch for children from deprived backgrounds. She personally grew up in provincial circumstances in China, and is a single parent.

Sixty children, chosen with help from the Salvation Army and the charity Inwood House, were invited to the lunch, where they were treated to face painting, balloons and ice-lollies, media reports.

Speaking about the failed wedding Sun told the New York Post “initially I felt frustrated. Three weeks later, I woke up with this idea...I cannot be the princess of my wedding day, but I can give the kids a fairy tale.”
