An unusual marriage! It is about a couple whose wedding was known as one of the most exciting weddings. Also named wheelie special, it was the wedding of Jo Church and her husband or wife, well, her life partner, Liz Carr.
First, let’s know about them, Liz Carr is a comedian and actor who uses a wheelchair and is completely frank about her life as a disabled person. She even uses it for her comedy. Let’s not forget about her partner Jo church; she is an author.
Despite Liz Carr’s medical condition, Jo Church and Carr are together. But the rather than husband and wife, the couple is preferred as spouses as they are both female and the legal term for this is Civil Partnership.

The theme of the wedding was a “Dia de Los Muertos.” As Carr explains,
Our two bridesmen wheeled side by side down the aisle to the lyrics, 'Here come the girls...' and escorted by our moms, myself and Jo followed behind to the Angry Anderson classic Suddenly - the wedding song of Scott and Charlene in Neighbours.
And so the ceremony began.
Well, even after these years of marriage, the duos are still together and going well, despite the critical health condition of Liz Carr. As for a fact, they have not shared any children either be it surrogation or adoption.
The British actress, who studied law at Nottingham University was diagnosed with Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita (AMC), a rare disease in newborns resulting in decreased flexibility of the joints, at the age of seven. Then after four years, she was told, the wheelchair would be with her for the rest of her life.
