Michael Nutter, the Philadelphia's Mayor, will perform same-sex weddings at City Hall on Friday.
Dozens of gay and lesbian couples in the US state of Pennsylvania rushed this week to obtain marriage licences, as a judge struck down its same-sex marriage ban.
There is a three-day waiting period for marriage there, so despite there being no defence of the ban, weddings won’t start there until Friday.
Congrats to all newlyweds!
