Colin and John married in Westminster Registry Office on the hottest day of the year, before heading over to St James’s Park for some post-wedding pics…

“We met in 1996 in The Black Horse, which was then a popular gay bar in the East End of London. John was sharing a house with the bar’s manager and she introduced us. We got married 20 years to the day after that first meeting.

“There was no proposal as such, we just decided that it was something we wanted to do and that the time was right. We hadn’t discussed exchanging rings so I surprised John with a gold band on his birthday.”


“We were married in the Registry Office at Westminster City Hall and we each asked one of our brothers to act as witnesses. Although the wedding party was only four strong we still wanted to mark the occasion in style. Our vegan wedding cake came from Ms. Cupcake in Brixton, flowers were supplied by The Covent Garden Academy of Flowers and photography was by Jennifer Langridge. It was the hottest day of the year and we sweltered a bit in our formal clothing but Jennifer’s photos, taken in and around St. James’ Park, are a fantastic record of a truly memorable day.”
