Courtney Mitchell and Sarah Welton were joined by sixty
activists who helped them celebrate after their ceremony at Dakshi
nkali Temple - a popular Hindu shrine on the outskirts of
Kathmandu, last weekend.
It is the first time a same-sex female couple have married in the
South East Asian sovereign state.
It comes after Nepal's Supreme court ruled in favor of laws to
guarantee full rights to LGBT people - including the right to marry
- on 17 November 2008.
Speaking to the Hindistan Times, the country's first openly-gay
lawmaker, Sunil Pant said: "The couple decided to have their
wedding here as they want to support Nepal's gay, lesbian and
transgendered community and also promote tourism in Nepal."
