Australia’s first gay weddings took place on Saturday, ushering in a new era after the country’s marriage equality law came into effect this month.

“Australia’s first legal same-sex marriage has just taken place. Congratulations Amy and Lauren,” Equal Marriage Rights Australia announced on its Facebook page.
