Gay Friendly Northern Ireland Wedding Vendors

Back to Europe

Note: Listings are ordered by province, then by vendor type, then by city.

As a gay couple together since 1992, we believe that marriage and all the responsibilities and benefits that come with it should be available to committed gay and lesbian couples everywhere. So we created Purple Unions, a place where gay and lesbian couples can find gay friendly wedding vendors to help them plan their perfect wedding day.

The UK has offered civil partnerships for gay and lesbian couples since 2005, a separate but equal institution offering the same rights and responsibilities as marriage, but under a different name.

In July, 2013, the Parliament in England and Wales passed the marriage equality bill. Lesbian couples started marrying in March, 2014. Scotland passed its own version of the bill in February 2014, with weddings scheduled to start there in the fall. Northern Ireland has not passed a marriage equality bull

Gay and lesbian couples in England have been able to adopt since 2002, and in Scotland since 2009. Northern Ireland does n ot allow same sex couples to adopt. The Catholic Church was exempted from both civil partnership and adoption laws.

Europe: Twenty Seven Different Interests on Gay Marriage

Jul 26th, 2012

When 1-year-old Kirsi Bestetti tripped and cut her lip at her grandparents' house last summer, her mother Elisa Bestetti rushed her to the emergency room, panicky about all the blood. Once there, she also worried whether the hospital staff would accept her as Kirsi's mother. Ms. Bestetti is Italian, but towheaded Kirsi is Finnish like her birth mother, Emmi Pihlajaniemi. The two... read_more
