And that night it became obvious to Alice that David and the middle-aged British priest were in love and had been for some time. Two years later David was also ordained as a priest and five weeks ago he and Peter were married in Britain’s first gay church ‘wedding’.Although it is officially against church rules, the couple’s civil partnership was blessed with a traditional marriage liturgy at St Bartholomew the Great in the City of London.Traditional arts such as whakairo (carving), raranga (weaving), kapa haka (group performance), whaikorero (oratory), and tā moko (tattoo) are common throughout the country.
