Stephen Fry to host ‘musical’ gay wedding in same-sex marriage celebration

By Jess Denham, Independent

Stephen Fry is to narrate one of the UK’s first same-sex marriages in a Channel 4 special called Our Gay Wedding: The Musical.
As the 60-minute show’s title suggests, this will be a ‘musical’ broadcast to celebrate the historic passing of the equal marriage bill in England and Wales just days earlier.The grooms, composer Benjamin Till and West End actor Nathan Taylor, are penning the music and lyrics to be sung during their wedding in accompaniment with Fry’s commentary.

Some famous faces are set to feature in the musical but their names are yet to be announced. Benjamin and Nathan’s family and friends will perform ensemble songs throughout the ceremony, with sung vows, readings and messages from around the world.
