Daniel and Becca
Weston Super Mare
This wedding was arranged in less than 48 hours. Marriages or civil partnerships in the UK require 28 days notice at registry offices but there are special circumstances that can fast track this process. Permission was given less than 24 hours before the wedding took place for Dan and Becca.
For the most part, it felt like a very ordinary wedding day and it was easy to forget just how poorly Dan was with his incredibly positive attitude but every now and then I was reminded that this was no ordinary day and that Dan was suffering more than he let on. While he was changing into his shirt, he showed me the tumours that were visible all over his body, most notably the upper left side of his body which caused him pain. It was also apparent that his left arm and hand had completely swollen up due to a buildup of fluid where his tumours were blocking the normal flow. This meant he had difficulty getting dressed. Despite this, I didn’t hear him complain once and his smiled beamed on his face for most of the day.
