Brighton and Hove has proved to be the most popular place for same-sex couples to hold their civil ceremonies, as over 200 gay and lesbian couples head to the seaside town each year.

According to latest figures, Brighton came out on top within the UK for the number of people to tie the knot in the city with 129 male and 97 female same sex couples doing so in 2010.

Speaking to the local paper The Angus, Keith Wilmott-Goodall, who was one of the first to have a civil partnership with his partner Keith Lewis, said: “Brighton is such an obvious place for people to come because it’s such a gay area. It has a lot more things for people to do after the ceremony because of all the pubs and clubs – not that I do much of that anymore.



“We remember our ceremony so clearly and I have even gone back to Gresham Blake to have the suit I wore that day adapted because it was too small for me.”
