Lesbian couple and European art duo Fleur Pierets and Julian P Bloom, known professionally as JF. Pierets, have said 'I Do' in Paris for their marriage equality project '22.'
The duo is symbolically marrying 24 times, once in each of the countries that has achieved marriage equality, to celebrate the places that have legalised same-sex marriage and highlight the work that needs to be done in the 170 countries that don’t. So far the couple have married in the United States, The Netherlands, Belgium and now France.
On Tuesday November 7th, their wedding ceremony was performed by the Paris Mayor’s representative for gender equality and human rights, Hélène Bidard. Fleur’s stunning dress was by Atelier LeonLeon, with photos by Paris-based photographer, Mahdi Aridj.
The couple spent two weeks immersing themselves in the city of love, hanging out at their favorite book stores and cafes and working on their documentary. Next, they head to Spain for wedding number five.
Meanwhile, adorable married couple Samira Wiley from The Handmaid’s Tale and OITNB writer Lauren Morelli, have welcomed Architectural Digest into their first home together. Morelli moved into the california bungalow in Los Angeles before she and Wiley held their confetti-themed wedding in March this year, and started working with interior designer Stefani Stein from Homepolish.
“The goal for the design was a finished space that felt light and bright,” Stefani told Homepolish.com. “Lauren gravitates toward bold colors and the selections for the space are truly reflective of her personality.”
Morelli told AD that although she started the design process herself, Wiley involved herself in the project and always intended to move in.
“I wanted it to feel like it was a representation of us, and I felt like we had an opportunity to be uniquely feminine because it's two women in a house together," she told AD.
