As of 29 March same-sex couples can get married in England & Wales! Here you can learn all you need to know ahead of your big day, find out how to celebrate in style with Stonewall, and relive the highlights of the campaign to make equal marriage a reality.
The government have announced that couples will be able to convert their civil partnerships to marriages from December 10. You'll need to book an appointment to see your Superintendent Registrar, show them some documents and then you'll be married. But there's nothing to stop you having a blessing or a party as well!
They've also announced there will be no fee if you plan to convert before December 2015, and it'll be £45 from there on out. For more information get in touch at email@example.com or 08000 50 20 20.
