David Cameron has hailed the first same-sex marriages in England and Wales as sending a "powerful message" about equality in Britain.
The law changed at midnight, with a number of gay couples vying to claim the title of being the first to be married in Britain by trying to time it perfectly so their vows were said just seconds after the clock struck 12.
The Prime Minister said the reform was necessary because "when people's love is divided by law, it is that law that needs to change".
Writing in Pink News he said "this weekend is an important moment for our country" because "we will at last have equal marriage in our country".
