Thousands of New Zealand couples have changed the phrase "I can't" to "I do" this morning as the same-sex marriage law comes into force.
Dozens of same-sex New Zealand couples, and a couple of Aussies, will collect marriage licences today as April's law changes take effect, with nine couples planning registry weddings.
To mark the special day in New Zealand's history, we've collected together photos of notable gay married celebrities - along with one divorced couple and an engaged couple.
The gallery includes photos of couples Ellen Degeneres and Portia de Rossi, Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka, Rufus Wainwright and Jorn Weisbrodt, Elton John and David Furnish, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Justin Mikita, divorcees Jane Lynch and Lara Embry, fiancés Melissa Etheridge and Linda Wallem, Cynthia Nixon and Christine Marinoni, Ryan Murphy and David Miller and Rosie O'Donnell and Michelle Rounds.
