Page dog helps mark gay wedding

A drag queen bridesmaid, a “page dog”, and a gay men’s choir have helped to mark a wedding on the first anniversary of civil partnerships becoming law.

Jamie Hakim, 36, and Graeme Youngs, 41, became the 680th couple to tie the knot in the Sussex city of Brighton.

Their vows focused on love, honour and respect, and they exchanged rings each set with a diamond taken from a ring worn by Mr Hakim’s late grandmother.

The unorthodox supporting cast also included a best man and a best girl.
