UK: Brighton gay couple to marry one minute after law takes effect
Brighton and Hove has announced one of the first gay couples who will be allowed to marry.
According to the Argus, Andrew Wale and Neil Allard were selected by a panel, and will be married at 00:01 on the first day of same-sex marriage, Saturday March 29.
The pair, a dramatist and a guesthouse owner, will marry at the first moment after the law is enacted, in the Music Room of the Brighton Royal Pavilion.
The couples may not be the first in the country, however, as marriages are allowed to start sooner for the terminally ill.
Although gay couples in England and Wales can marry on March 29, couples in Scotland will likely have to wait until the Autumn.
