Charlotte told BBC: “‘I’ve been waiting for that date, facing that challenge was like facing the devils’ temptation, I couldn’t imagine my life after missing it."
The groom said he was touched by his wife’s insistence to proceed with the wedding despite not knowing whether he would be able to walk again.

The wedding was witnessed by just five guests, two from both families and the fifth person was the officiating minister. Another person present was the photographer.
Sharing photos from the wedding on his Instagram page, Anthony wrote: “Unfortunately we couldn’t have a “traditional” wedding but I thank God for the journey and wouldn’t have had it any other way.
"A lot of people have told me they are proud of me. Quite frankly I’m very proud of myself. As a boy, my mother preached a lot but a few always stood out.
"The woman who taught me how to love told me to do things the right way. She told me to go to counseling before the engagement, get married, then buy a house and lastly have children."
