Same-sex marriage: Couple make history as first in NI

Discussion in 'Off Topic' started by Tiziano's Boy, Feb 11, 2020.

  1. A couple have tied the knot in the first same-sex marriage to take place in Northern Ireland.


    Robyn Peoples, from Belfast, and Sharni Edwards, from Brighton celebrated their nuptials on Tuesday at a ceremony in a hotel in Carrickfergus, County Antrim.
    They met five years ago at a gay bar in Belfast.
    Ahead of the ceremony, Ms Peoples, a care worker, said the pair were sending a message to the world that "we are equal".
    "Our love is personal but the law which said we couldn't marry was political," she said.
    "We are delighted that with our wedding, we can now say that those days are over.
    "While this campaign ends with Sharni and I saying 'I do', it started with people saying 'No' to inequality.
    "By standing together, we've made history."

    Congrats to Robyn and Sharni, sending you both well wishes and a happy life ahead of you two ❤️❤️️‍️‍
