A 31-year-old dementia sufferer has married the love of his life before the disease robs him of the memory.
Daniel Bradbury, who suffers from a terminal form of early onset Alzheimers, married wife Jordan on August 11.
The pair, from Hucknall, Nottingham, planned their wedding in just three months after Daniel was diagnosed last year.
We had such a special and memorable day, 30-year-old Jordan said of the wedding.
We felt like we blinked and the day was over but we couldnt be happier with how Dan was feeling on the day, and how supportive our family and friends were.
A lot of them travelled from all over the UK to join us on the day and that meant a lot to Dan and I. I cried through most of my vows.
Emotions were high and it just meant so much to me to be able to make my promises to him on this bittersweet journey.
My personal highlight on the day was seeing Dan looking dashing in his suit and the beautiful handwritten vows he spoke me to me at the ceremony.
He later told me that he meant every word and in the future when hes unable to tell me each day and when his memory fades that he hopes I remember and cherish those words as it is how he will always feel about me.
Daniel was diagnosed with dementia in September 2017 after seeking medical attention due to problems with his short term memory.
The rare form of Alzheimers is caused by a mutation in the gene called PSEN1.
Daniel inherited the gene from his father Adrian, who passed away from the condition in 1999, aged just 36.
The couple now fear for their 18-month-old twins, Jasper and Lola, who both have a 50 per cent chance of inheriting the disease.
I had an inkling. We did research ourselves before then but its not good news to take on board, Daniel said of his diagnosis.
It took a long time to finally get over the shock.
I have found acceptance now and Im sure Jordan has as well it is still hard.
Daniel has a short life expectancy and suffers from short-term memory loss, confusion and balance problems.
The pair want to make as many cherished memories as possible and previously launched a fundraising page for a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Disney World Florida.
They were then left completely blown away when over 900 supporters donated just under £20,000 – smashing their £10,000 target.
Our coping mechanism is live day by day because if we think too much about what is going to happen and the future it will just bog us down so we try and make every day fun, Jordan said.
People with young onset dementia, those who develop it before the age of 65, account for around 42,000 of dementia cases in the UK.
Alzheimers Society Chief Executive Officer Jeremy Hughes said: On behalf of Alzheimers Society, I would like to congratulate Daniel and Jordan on their wedding.
Their brave decision to share their story earlier in the year has not only helped to raise awareness of dementia for the 850,000 people currently living with it across the UK, but now their support for Memory Walk will help to raise vital funds to help us defeat dementia through research.
The Bradburys, along with their friends and other relatives, will take part in their local Memory Walk in Nottingham on September 8.
