Written by scott on March 26th, 2014

UK WeddingsMarriage equality officially comes to England and Wales this Saturday.

Queerty reports:

Following the passing of landmark legislation allowing same-sex marriage in England and Wales, the first gay weddings in the UK will take place this weekend on Saturday, March 29th. The Deputy Prime Minister of the UK, Nick Clegg (pictured), has always been a strong supporter of marriage equality and gay rights in the UK. He said today (25th March) that:

“I strongly want to join my Right Honourable Friend in recognizing the joy of many same-sex couples who will finally be able to marry under British law this weekend. It’s a great, great moment, it’s a day which they will always remember and I hope it’s a day the nation will never forget. I think it’s a great, great step forward for us all.”

We’re thrilled for our brothers and sisters across the pond!
