The couple entered a civil partnership in the UK in December 2006, which was a small ceremony held in Cardiff attended by friends and family. Seven years later, in 2013, John and Scott became one of the first same-sex couples to marry in California, just a day after the California Supreme Court overturned the ban on same-sex weddings.Talking about the special occasion in an interview with The Mirror, John said at the time: "I started welling up when we said our vows. It was the same with our civil partnership. I think it was because I never thought we'd be able to do it. Scott and I felt completely different after our civil ceremony, like we’d made a big step. But after this I feel very proud, happy and chuffed. It feels right." He added: "The couple who witnessed for us were an 82-year-old man and a 76-year-old man. They were crying during their ceremony and we were emotional with them."
