Meet Northern Ireland's first same-sex couple who just tied the knot

Feb 12, 2020 15:58 IST

Robyn Peoples and Sharni Edwards became the first same-sex couple to tie the knot in Northern Ireland after a new legislation was passed and came into effect in the province on Monday. The two Belfast-based women exchanged their vows in Carrickfergus, reportedly on their 6th anniversary as a couple. The couple, who scripted history, will now go by the name of Mrs and Mrs Edwards-Peoples. Before the law was passed, they had booked a civil partnership ceremony but changed it to a wedding after same-sex marriages became legal.
