Registration opens for first same-sex marriages
Same-sex couples in England and Wales who want to hold weddings on the day gay marriage becomes
legal on 29 March can register to do so from Thursday.
Existing marriages of gay couples that took place overseas will also be legally recognised from Thursday.
Procedures for people who are in civil partnerships to “upgrade” to marriage have yet to come into effect.
Scotland has passed a same-sex marriage bill but changes in the law are not being introduced in Northern Ireland.
Couples have to give 15 days’ notice of their intention to marry at a register office, and need to do so on Thursday if they want to be among the first to benefit from the passing of the Marriage (Same-Sex Couples) Act.
