London: A gay couple are believed to be the first in Britain to hold a civil ceremony in a church building, the Daily Mail reported on Monday.

Kieran Bohan and Warren Hartley exchanged vows at the Ullet Road Unitarian Church, in Liverpool, last month and are currently enjoying their honeymoon.

The couple, who described the event as a "milestone for equality", only received council approval that the church could register civil partnerships a week before their big day.
The couple, from Toxteth, Liverpool, have been together for four-and-a-half years and met through their involvement in groups for gay people of faith.
