Why not take a stroll to calm some pre-wedding nerves, or have a post-wedding beach photo shoot? Winning formula If you and your partner are thinking about becoming parents, adoption is a great way for you to have a family. All children need loving parents and in 2015, one in 12 adopted children across England joined the family of a same-sex couple. LGBT parents help form the diversity of life, making for inclusive families. If you choose this path, independent adoption charity Parents And Children Together (PACT) has lots of experience helping people from the LGBT community become Forever Families. The charity is particularly looking for adopters for priority children: those who have been waiting the longest to be adopted. All PACT adopters receive support for life, including access to award-winning therapeutic support services. PACT LGBT adopters also receive free membership to New Family Social —a network for LGBT adoptive and foster families. PACT regularly holds information events for people considering adoption in Brighton, London and Reading. www.pactcharity.org 112 » pink weddings magazine The team provide a personal service and are on hand to make sure your special day runs smoothly.

Both worked previously as local authority registrars, so are ideally placed to advise on the legal requirements, while working with you to create exactly the ceremony you have always dreamed of. They help with the ceremony content, which can be as traditional or alternative as you wish, and also on where and when the ceremony takes place – they have conducted moonlit beach weddings and ceremonies aboard boats and doubledecker buses! Without question, some of their favourite ceremonies have been for same-sex couples, and they say that ‘the commitment and love demonstrated has been on a different level’. Based in East Anglia, Sue and Sarah are happy to travel. www.circleoflifeeastanglia.co.uk
