Gay marriage has been legal in other parts of the British Isles – England, Scotland and Wales – since 2014, but Northern Ireland only joined the train last year.

Same s*x couples could only get legally married since January 13th and Robyn and Shami became the first to do so this week.

Speaking ahead of the wedding, Robyn said their wedding was a message that all people 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.” she added.
