(Scroll down for video) A man and a woman of the United Kingdom, who have Down syndrome, had an elaborate wedding.

The couple had 200 wedding guests at the venue that was beautifully decorated.

The groom, Joe, and his bride, Polly, met 8 years ago at the Central Sussex College, where they fell in love.

Georgia Furness, who uploaded a video of the elaborate wedding to YouTube, wrote: “With the help of their families, they had a wonderful magical wedding, and they are now hoping to build an independent life for themselves. Please feel free to share this link, spread the love and enjoy watching their wonderful day.”

The couple had a unicorn throne to sit on, “which was the most amazing talking point of the day,” Polly said.

They also had the Rat Pack Boys to entertain their guests. The eye-catching wedding cake was made of three large tiers that was covered in colored sprinkles with a blue topper that had the couple’s name with a heart next to it.

The couple wanted to share the video and photos of their special day in order to inspire other people with disabilities to follow their dreams.

“It would be wonderful if our story could touch the lives of others struggling to cope with any kind of disability or inequality. The greatest thing is to love and be loved in return,” the bride said.
