Jersey's first same sex and outdoor weddings have taken place, after the law came into effect on Sunday 1 July.

Jessica and Daniel Ferguson are one of the first couples in the island to have an outdoor wedding. They tied the knot at La Mare Wine Estate on Saturday afternoon.

Meanwhile, the island's first same sex marriage took place at midday today.

“We are delighted that this important piece of new legislation is now in place, and that same sex couples can celebrate their commitment to each other, and enjoy the ceremony of marriage in Jersey. I had the pleasure of officiating at the first ceremony and it was very special. We look forward to welcoming other same sex couples to be married in Jersey as the year goes on, and offer our warm congratulations to our first couple who have made history in Jersey today.”
