A senior care worker and waiter will make history next week when they become the first same-sex couple to be married in Northern Ireland.

Robyn Peoples from Belfast and Sharni Edwards, who is originally from Brighton, will tie the knot on Tuesday.

The wedding will take place in Carrickfergus, one day after same-sex marriages become legal in Northern Ireland for the first time.

Next week is the first week that same-sex couples in Northern Ireland can legally get married.

Robyn, 26, and Sharni, 27, met five years ago at a gay bar in Belfast.
