Carl and Jack surprised their guests with a nontraditional wedding that broke all convention. We have to confess to stifling a giggle as Carl tells us how he and Jack met for the first time. "It was a night like no other… actually it was just like every other," he laughs. "We met in the student union during Jack's first week of university; I was a second year and helping to run an LGBTQ+ evening with my best friend.

Actually, that's how we ended up joining the stag do, even though I suspected it was her way of trying to get rid of me." After that night, the pair spent almost every day of the next two weeks together. "I think it was then that we realised we wanted to be with each other," she says.... read more
