James Lusted, 28, who has a rare genetic dwarfism condition, used a four-step wooden ladder to climb up next to his 5ft 7in bride Chloe, 22. The pair then stood eye-to-eye as they exchanged marriage vows in front of family and friends at St Margaret’s Church in Bodelwyddan, North Wales.
Jay, an actor who performs in Christmas pantomimes, said
‘I had the steps especially made. They actually made me a couple of inches taller than her. It meant we could have a proper kiss just like any other couple on their wedding day.”
‘There may be a 2ft height difference but when you are in love little things like that don’t matter.’ The couple, who have been together for three years, got engaged in 2014.
They are both devoted Christians and were waiting until they were married before living together and having sex. They also plan to try for a family. Jay was born with a rare genetic condition called Diastrophic Dysplasia. Both his parents are of average height but carried a rare gene.
