The first same-sex marriage in Northern Ireland is set to take place later today.
Robyn Peoples (26) from Belfast and Sharni Edwards (27) from Brighton are set to become the first same-sex couple to marry at a ceremony in Carrickfergus, Co Antrim,
Same-sex marriage was legalised in the North last year, and the necessary changes legally came into effect yesterday.
The legislation was approved by MPs in Westminster last summer, with the British Parliament voting to extend marriage rights in Northern Ireland in the absence of a sitting executive at Stormont at the time.
Speaking to BBC last week ahead of her marriage, Robyn Peoples said: "I just want to say a big thank you to everyone in Northern Ireland who has made this possible for us.
"[Thanks to everyone] behind the scenes, everyone who's marched, everyone who's emailed... signed petitions... everything."
Northern Ireland was the final place in Ireland or the UK to recognise same-sex marriage.
It followed years of campaigning and activism, with the Love Equality NI group saying it was a people-powered campaign for "people who love one another & want to share their lives together".
For couples who are already married, their marriage will be legally recognised in Northern Ireland.
However, those who are in a civil partnership will not be able to convert it to a marriage - with activists continuing to campaign for changes to the law to allow such partnerships to be easily converted.
