There Was A Same-Sex Wedding On Television Set To A Musical, And It Really Was Something Quite Special

Towards the end you didn't actually care that it was a musical, either.

So there was this show on British TV last night.

That's right. musical wedding to celebrate the fact that same-sex couples in England and Wales can now get married.

A musical wedding may sound a bit much.

Gay or straight, I won't be attending your musical wedding. #ourgaywedding

But trust me... the musical is so much more meaningful and emotional than you first expected.

The service started with words from Stephen Fry: "Dearly beloved. We are gathered here today to witness something so extraordinary in this time..."

Even Newsreader Jon Snow (not to be confused with THE Game of Thrones' Jon Snow) sang about it.

So you're thinking okay, this is all a bit of a laugh and rather pointless.

Politicians sent in their congratulations.

David Cameron didn't send in a message but Nick Clegg and Ed Miliband did.

Oh by the way, they spoke their congratulations. They didn't sing it :(

You really started to care about what same-sex marriages mean.

Although some people were confused.

Oh lord, just seen @StephenFry on #OurGayWedding The Musical! I feel so betrayed. After all these years he never told me he likes musicals.
