First same-sex wedding held in British Antarctic Territory

STORY: The couple, who have been together for 20 years, shared their special day with the 30 crew members, and had captain Will Whatley performing the wedding ceremony on the ship’s helideck as the sun shone.

The couple said they decided to get married when Carpenter joined the ship’s crew last year and realised Antarctica would be the perfect place for their wedding.

They said they plan a celebration for their family and friends in Spain later this year.
