An historic moment came for a Bakewell registrar as she prepared for the new gay marriage laws to take effect.

Stella Truby is pictured above at Bakewell Registry Office removing the plaque which states marriage is a union of ‘one man with one woman’.

Gay marriage laws will come into effect on Friday, March 29, and the registry office has already received several applications from couples wishing to tie the knot.
