History Made In Northern Ireland As Two Women Become First Same-Sex Couple To Get Married (PHOTOS)

Two women have found themselves in the history books as the first same-sex couple to get married in Northern Ireland.

The women, Sharni Edwards, 27, and Robyn Peoples, got wedded at a ceremony in Carrickfergus on Tuesday afternoon.

Recall that same-sex marriage became legal after an October 2019 Westminster bill changed the law.

It was gathered that the couple had prepared for a civil partnership ceremony at a hotel before the legislation was officially passed last summer. After the law was passed, the couple changed their ceremony to a full-fledged wedding.

Edwards declared, “It means the absolute world” to get married. She thanked the activists who campaigned for same-sex marriage.

“If it wasn’t for the guys we wouldn’t be sat here right now. We just want to say thank you to everyone … everyone who has marched and signed petitions, everyone who has helped us get to this stage, we just want to say thank you.

Edwards, who was unaware that a different law exists in Northern Ireland before moving to Belfast from England, said;

“We feel humbled that our wedding is a landmark moment for equal rights in Northern Ireland. We didn’t set out to make history – we just fell in love.
