Ayrshire couple have dream wedding

1b(2b)A couple from Ayrshire delighted after not only having a dream wedding, but also making history as part of the first same-sex couple to marry in Ayrshire.

Kayley Mackenzie, from Irvine, married Kirsten Snaddon, from Ayr, in the Ayrshire’s first gay marriage on Thursday 29th January. The wedding was conducted at Ayr Registry Office and attended by the couple’s family and friends.

Speaking to the Irvine Times, Kayley said that it was “a great privilege” to be the first same-sex couple to tie the knot in Ayrshire since the new legislation came into effect on 31st December.

Kirsten, who works as an aircraft cleaner and Kayley, who is not currently working, met online last year. They have no plans for a honeymoon but are instead looking forward to having “lots of different weekends out during the year to celebrate.”

Colin Macfarlane, Director at Stonewall Scotland said: “[This] is a day of celebration for the couple concerned and we send our warmest congratulations to them.”
