By public demand, another chance to see this story of a remarkable young woman.
It's Alison French's wedding day. She's 24 - vivacious, candid, attractive, with a warm smile and a lively sense of humour. Alison, professionally qualified as a youth worker, is marrying
Mark John. What makes her wedding different is that she's an athetoid spastic - her body's never still, and she has difficulty with her speech.

But in marrying the man she loves, Alison has to leave her family in Watford, set up a new home in South Wales, and adapt to being a clergyman's wife.
