You are the one who makes hopes worth sharing, dreams worth dreaming, risks worth taking and life worth living, I am so grateful for you.

I know I’m getting really soppy on you guys today but I can’t help it, after reading and watching Louise and George’s beautiful, enduring love story, and how the non profit organisation Wish Upon A Wedding helped to make their dreams of getting married come true, I just had to share it with all.

Their love story spans 23 years with the couple only ever spending one day apart. Louise battled countless illnesses with George always by her side but against all odds they were happy. There was just one thing missing – a wedding!

This special couple and these moving films by Cinemacake will have you holding onto your love a little tighter, more thankful than ever to have them in your life. But be warned, you will need tissues to hand!

Louise and George’s Love Story

Louise and George are a testament to true, unconditional love and the joy that the non profit organisation Wish Upon A Wedding and the generous wedding vendors who donate their time and energy are able to bring to people’s lives.

Louise and George’s Wedding Film

I’m afraid I don’t know what has become of George and Louise – their wedding was back in October 2011 and I couldn’t find any updates via Wish Upon A Wedding but wherever they are, I’m grateful to them for sharing their story with the world. They’ve made me more thankful than I’ve felt in a long time.

If you’d like to help / donate or if you know of any inspirational couples in need of a wish be sure to visit the Wish Upon A Wedding website.

Okay, I don’t know about you but I’m all cried out for today!

I promise not to feature anything heart breaking or ugly cry inducing tomorrow.
