In a world where so many prejudices against a gay wedding, exists, it is safe to say that we have come a long way. A Gay wedding photoshoot seems to be the flavor of the season and we are loving all the happily ever after pictures storming the internet! When it comes to celebrating love, no one does it better than couples who belong to the LGBT (Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) community. Not only does it take them a lot of courage to come out of the closet but it takes a different sort of power to take the next step. A victory for love, LGBTQIA+ weddings are currently legally recognized in 29 countries and territories.

In 2018, in the landmark decision of Navtej Singh Johar v. Union of India, the Supreme Court of India decriminalized consensual homosexual marriage by reading down Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code. When India decriminalized homosexuality, it gave strength to millions and caught up with a global majority who believe, who know, that love is love. In a place where every day seems to struggle to make sense of itself, the courage to know yourself and the bliss of loving someone and them loving you in return, is what makes mundane existence sublime.

Getting married is an emotional and celebratory affair, but to be able to tie the knot with the love of your life after being denied the right to do so? Now that brings a whole new meaning to the milestone. In every photo below, there’s no missing the joy etched across each newlywed’s face.
