History has been made across the West Country today as gay couples were allowed to marry for the first time.
Bristol Register Office was among the first venues to conduct the ceremonies. It followed a change of law at midnight which ruled same-sex couples could exchange wedding vows.
The first gay weddings will take place in the region tomorrow after changes to legislation governing same-sex relationships.
Some of the first ceremonies in the country will be held at Bristol Register Office.
