Swansea dreams of having pink wedding

City and County of Swansea Council is hoping to cash in on the gay tourism market by becoming the first council in Wales to offer registry office 'weddings' for same gender couples.

The proposal to let commitment ceremonies is intended to allow couples

celebrate their relationship without getting married. It has no legal status.

'There is a clear indication that there is a demand for this service and so Swansea would like to make it available to residents and anyone else who wishes to come here for this purpose,' said David Jones (Lab), cabinet member for environment and health.

'As well as benefiting the local community, there is a clear marketing opportunity here that could attract custom from the rest of the UK which could boost tourism in the city.'
