Romantic escapes such as Hawaii, Paris and Brazil are also accessible now, as the world opens up to LGBT travel
As the tourist board puts it: Las Vegas just got more fabulous. Last month, gay marriage was pronounced legal in the wedding capital of the world making the city the most symbolic of a host of destinations to open up to official same-sex ceremonies.
The US, in particular, is on a roll: in the past month alone, same-sex marriage has been legalised in 13 states including the Pacific paradise of Hawaii. These locations join France, Brazil, New Zealand and the markedly less tropical UK. Now, same-sex couples can start dreaming of exotic ceremonies: beachside in Honolulu, perhaps; a classical reception in Paris, or an Elvis-themed shindig in Vegas.
