Gay Marriage Officially Begins In England And Wales: VIDEO


As promised, same-sex marriage became legal a little while ago at midnight in England and Wales. Couples in both realms have already begun to say ‘I do’ and their friends and loved ones have taken to social media to help document this historic occasion. 

The couple pictured above were toasted on Twitter by Craig Baldwin (@goochus73): "You may now kiss the groom". Gay couple marry in historic moment in Camden Town Hall. #equalmarriage 

Though the identity of the first gay couple married in Britain is not certain at this point, the council of Islington, a district in greater London, had suggested that two of its residents, Peter McGraith and David Cabreza (pictured below), would be the first. Indeed, the happy pair have tied the knot, as Twitter user Andy Hull (@AndyHull79) shared: CONGRATULATIONS, Peter McGraith & David Cabreza, now Husband & Husband! #equalmarriage #makinghistory in @IslingtonBC.

Check out more images -- and a video! -- of McGraith and Cabreza along with those of other happy couples from across the pond, AFTER THE JUMP…

  3. So wonderful! My eyes fill with tears of happiness. One hopes that America in its totality will not be too far behind. Congratulations to all the newly-weds!

  4. >> Couples in both realms

    I know what you're trying to get at, but, "both realms" is the wrong phrase, they are both "one realm." Try "both nations" or "both countries."
