Madison and Kyle Noronha’s European honeymoon was meant to be the start of the rest of their lives.

But their wedded bliss was cut tragically short when Madison, from the NSW south coast, collapsed in the middle of an Amsterdam street on Wednesday.

Ms Noronha was rushed to hospital where scans revealed she suffered a brain aneurysm. Despite undergoing “instant brain surgery” to relieve the pressure from the brain bleed, it proved fatal.

Mr Noronha said she died in his arms before 11pm on Wednesday.

“The doctors could not believe the size of the aneurysm and nothing could prevent this from happening and nothing could be done to save her,” he wrote online.

“My darling wife I cannot comprehend what has happened I’m in a million pieces. Forever and always babe.

It is understood the couple got married on April 21, 2023 with Mr Noronha sharing photos and videos of the glowing couple from their rural ceremony.

A GoFundMe has since been set up by Ms Noronha’s friends and colleagues on behalf of her family to help bring their daughter home, and to assist with funeral costs.

The campaign has already raised more than $34,000 in less than a day of opening for a woman who was “loved and cherished beyond measure”.

“We are all left heartbroken, but can’t imagine the pain that Kyle and her immediate family are experiencing,” organiser Taylah Wicks wrote on the GoFundMe.

“Funds raised will help with flights, funeral costs and to help bring our beloved Madison home to be laid to rest.”

Tributes have poured in for the late, happy bride, including from her “heartbroken” colleagues at ARN and Wave FM 96.5, an Illawarra radio station where she worked as a campaign design specialist.

Ms Noronha (nee Chatham) studied Communications and Media at the University of Wollongong. She worked in media sales for Grant Broadcasters before joining Wave.
