A man who was blinded and scarred beyond recognition when his ex-girlfriend soaked him in sulphuric acid has got married to his carer.
Daniel Rotariu wed Anna Catanga, who he has never seen because of theinjuries inflicted on him.
The pair, who live in Nottingham, tied the knot at a catholic churchin Daniel’s home town of Timisoara, Romania.
Daniel, 33, fell for Anna, 31, after she helped him through rehabat a support centre.
The pair now have a 10-month-old son, David – whose passport only camethrough the day before they headed abroad for the wedding.
After the attack, I never thought this would happen to me but it was wonderful. There were many family and friends who hadn’t seen me since the attack and that was quite emotional. I think some were shocked by how I looked. Some of my relatives started crying. But it just felt unbelievable to be marrying the woman I love after everything I’ve been through. I hope my story gives hope to others.
Although Daniel has not been able to see Anna in her wedding dress, the couple remain hopeful that one day he might.
Daniel was attacked by his ex girlfriend in July 2016.
A court heard Leong tested the acid on sausage meat to ensure it wouldburn through human flesh.
Daniel was rushed to Nottingham City Hospital and spent five weeks in a coma.
Despite everything, Daniel has remained upbeat and says he's had "the happy ending I never thought was possible."
