The looks of love! Three months after their wedding, Olympian Tom Daley and husband Dustin Lance Black decided to share an intimate portion of their ceremony for a worthy cause.On Sunday, August 13, the pair posted a five-minute video recapping their nuptials at Bovey Castle in Dartmoor, England.
In it, the dynamic duo recollect how they fell in love, and how each knew the other was the one for them when they first met. “When Tom and I met four years ago, I knew instantly I was in trouble,” Black, 43, says in the clip. “I knew I’d met my match. I’d met someone who would inspire me, someone I could admire, but also somebody who would naturally be my best friend. And it didn’t hurt that he was incredibly cute and charismatic and didn’t let me get away with a thing.”
Daley, 23, had a similarly strong reaction when he met Black. “Within the first few minutes of conversation with Lance, things suddenly, massively changed for me,” the British diver adds. “I fell in love. Every single part of him—the way he thinks, the way he acts, and everything that he does just makes me fall in love with him every single day more and more.”
The pair first met through mutual friends, and based on their wedding video, have been buoyed by the love of many friends and family in their relationship. In the five-minute clip, the two grooms beam as they get ready with their respective families, and get misty-eyed as they exchange vows.
Other parts of the video show family and friends giving heartfelt toasts, as well as boogying down on the dance floor. The night ended in a spectacular display of fireworks.
In a YouTube description of the video, Daley noted that both he and Black, an Oscar-winning screenwriter, want to share their wedding video for one very important reason.
“Our honeymoon feels like the perfect time to finally share our magical day,” Daley wrote. “We know our wedding was only possible thanks to the brave work of countless people for generations before us, so in that tradition, we will donate any revenue from this video to the ‘LGBT+ Switchboard’ and ‘It Gets Better’ in hopes of making things even better for future generations.”
