|Ian and Philip with witnesses, Mark and Keith|
However for us the highlight of our visit was our marriage two days ago. Philip and I were Civilly Partnered in the UK nearly seven years ago but it counts for nothing in the USA, hence my exile back to the UK for six months each year. Gay marriage is legal in six states in the USA including New York. Sadly it still won't allow me a full visa until the law changes at a federal level. We didn't do the grey suits, or the flowers and champagne but we both said 'I do!'
