Bride Polly Gibson and groom Joe Minogue had one utterly magical wedding day.
The couple, who both have Down syndrome, tied the knot in May 2016 at Brewerstreet Farmhouse in Surrey, England in front of 200 family and friends. Their big day ― which they called WedFest ― was filled with fun touches such as a unicorn throne, singing waiters, a sprinkle cake, colorful decor and, of course, lots of dancing.
The bride’s mother Janet Gibson told The Huffington Post that the couple shares an “amazing” connection.
“They constantly check on each other, help each other, are very kind and thoughtful with each other,” she said. “Polly is the bossy one, Joe is more down to earth. He adores her. They are totally at ease with each other and they each respect the other.”
The newlyweds first met eight years ago as students at Central Sussex College.
“[We] were instantly attracted to each other,” Polly said.
Polly hopes that their love story will inspire other couples with special needs.
“My advice to other couples, especially to young adults with special needs, is to live the dream, believe in yourselves and that anything can be possible,” she told Rock N Roll Bride.
