Vincent and Bruno made history as France first same-sex married couple!

Vincent Autin, 40, and Bruno Boileau, 29, are the first gay couple to wed in France since the law granting gay men and lesbians equality in marriage and adoption has been in effect!

Gay marriage

France is the 14th country to permit same-sex marriage in the world.

Vincent and Bruno exchanged vows and rings before Helene Mandroux, mayor of the southern of city of Montpellier on Wednesday to cheers and applause at a city hall ringed by riot police.

As minutes before the pair had prepared to make their entrance in front of 500 invited guests, journalists and well-wishers inside the futuristic, blue-glass city hall, someone had tossed a smoke bomb into the building’s grounds.

Not even biggest street protests in years – or a smoke bomb lobbed toward the city hall – could stop Vincent and Bruno getting married.

The wedding ceremony was planned to be shown on a giant TV screen outside city hall the city hall, but it was scrapped due to protests. It was shown online instead.

Congratulations to the newly weds!
