Jo and Alex say, “Our kids are now six and eight – they do soccer, ballet, love swimming and playing (too many) computer games like everyone else’s kids! They call us ‘Mummy’ and ‘Mumma’ and to them and their friends we are just like any other family.”

Suz says, “Bern and I met through friends about eight years ago, and have been together for five years, married for two years. We decided to get married when we visited family in Vancouver in Canada. We had Ruby in December 2011. It was the most amazing day ever – Ruby is the greatest thing that has ever happened to us. Ruby is almost walking and loves Dorothy the Dinosaur.”

James and Mike on their first anniversary: “We’ve never been too comfortable with public displays, but as the camera clicked, we noticed we had drawn the attention of a wedding in the garden, the guests smiling gently at us, and our hearts hung heavy with the wish to one day be united like the happy couple that day. Hopefully, a kiss like this will one day unite us as husbands.”
