First official IoM same-sex wedding takes place

History was made on Saturday, as the first same-sex marriage in the Isle of Man took place.

Luke Carine and Zac Tomlinson were pronounced husband and husband at a civil ceremony at Ramsey Town Hall.

They live in Manchester, but said they wanted to come home to tie the knot.

Civil partnerships have been converted since the law was changed last month, but this was the first official wedding.
