A Belfast couple were on Tuesday set to become the first same-sex couple to get married in Northern Ireland after a change in the law.
 
貝爾法斯特一對戀人本周二成為北愛爾蘭修改法律之后首對結婚的同性戀人。
 
Robyn Peoples, 26, and Sharni Edwards, 27, were due to wed1 at 2 pm (1400 GMT) in Carrickfergus, near Belfast, after the new legislation came into effect on Monday.
 
It followed campaigning by Amnesty International and partner organizations in the "Love Equality" campaign, which hailed the occasion "a landmark2 moment for equality in Northern Ireland."
 
"We didn't set out to make history - we just fell in love," Edwards said ahead of the nuptials3 in a statement released by the campaign.
 
"We are so grateful to the thousands of people who marched for our freedoms, to the Love Equality campaign who led the way, and the politicians who voted to change the law."
 
Her soon-to-be wife Peoples added: "While this campaign ends with Sharni and I saying 'I do,' it started with people saying 'no' to inequality. By standing4 together, we've made history."
 
British MPs in London passed legislation last July, while Northern Ireland's devolved government was suspended, to allow gay marriages and same-sex civil partnerships5.
