Same sex weddings and civil unions are becoming legal in an increasing number of countries worldwide, and many other countries are taking steps towards this. In 2000, The Netherlands was the first country to legalise gay marriage, and many other countries have followed suit including South Africa, New Zealand, The USA, multiple European states, and several others. Recently, in 2015, Ireland became the first country in the world to legalise gay marriage by popular vote. Steps are clearly being taken across the globe to promote equality between homosexual and heterosexual couples, providing them with the same legal rights with regards to marriage.

Same sex couples can now choose from a wide range of destinations to hold their dream wedding, which provide stunning views and beautiful venues. You could be saying your vows overlooking the bustling city of Cape Town, or in a stylish venue along the beach in the glamorous city of Miami.
