First same-sex marriage in Jersey

09 July 2018

Jersey’s first same-sex marriage has taken place at The Office of the Superintendent Registrar.

The marriage took place today at 12 noon under the new law, and is the first of several booked to take place over the coming months.

The new marriage law allows same-sex couples to get married and all couples to have more choice over who marries them and where they get married.

Jersey’s Superintendent Registrar Claire Follain said: “We are delighted that this important piece of new legislation is now in place, and that same-sex couples can celebrate their commitment to each other, and enjoy the ceremony of marriage in Jersey.

"I had the pleasure of officiating at the first ceremony and it was very special. We look forward to welcoming other same-sex couples to be married in Jersey as the year goes on, and offer our warm congratulations to our first couple who have made history in Jersey today.”

Anyone wishing to book a marriage ceremony can contact the Office of the Superintendent Registrar on 441335.
