First UK Same-Sex Marriage Takes Place
Sean Adl-Tabatabai and Sinclair Gray Treadway have became the first same-sex couple to marry in the UK this morning.
The ceremony took place at Camden Town Hall at one minute past midnight. Mayor of Camden Councillor Jonathan Simpson conducted the historic service alongside Registrar Tania Uddin and Deputy Superintendent Registrar Steven Lord.
Speaking after the ceremony Mr Adl-Tabatabai said, “It feels very surreal. During the service when the Mayor was talking about the historical significance in the journey of equal rights for the gay community, it was at that moment it hit me how huge the moment was.”
Mr Treadway, commented, “Hopefully one day we’ll look back in the future and we won’t still be fighting for rights but we’ll all be accepted”
