A gay couple in Uruguay have become the first to tie the knot publicly since the South American country's Equal Marriage Law first went into effect - reports ITN News.
Sergio Miranda, 45, and Rodrigo Borda, 39, were the first same sex couple to register to marry on August 5.
Miranda said: "It is a very important personal moment and we are also aware that it is an important historical moment for the country which goes beyond the two of us."
Uruguay became the second South American country and the 12th in the world to legalise same sex marriage when its Equal Marriage Law was approved by the lower house of Congress back in April.
Now legally married, Miranda and Borda say they are planning a wedding ceremony for September.
