Jan Tipper and Barb Burden made history when they were married at the Metropolitan Community Church in Bournemouth on Sunday, 13 April 2014. Reverend Dwayne Morgan, who officiated, said the church had “taken pride in celebrating diversity”.

This was the first gay wedding ceremony in Britain to be conducted in a religious building.

MCC was established in Bournemouth in 1979 and is associated with the Universal Fellowship of Metropolitan Community Churches, which has churches in over 40 countries. Mr Morgan said the church had been blessing gay couples for more than three decades.
