First same-sex marriage in Northern Ireland takes place today

THE FIRST SAME-sex marriage in Northern Ireland will take place in Antrim today.

Sharni Edwards, 27, and Robyn Peoples, 26, will marry on their sixth anniversary as a couple.

They had booked a civil partnership ceremony for the date, months before the landmark law change in the region.

Edwards, from Brighton, and Peoples, from Belfast, have now turned the event into a wedding ceremony.

In an interview with 5 News last week, Edwards said the couple feels “humbled” to be the first couple to tie the knot after the legislative change.

“It was a long time coming but the fact that we get to celebrate and make that difference is amazing.”
