In the US's North Carolina State, a same sex couple was turned away from a wedding venue after it refused to host a gay wedding due to its 'strong Christian beliefs.
McCae Henderson and Ike Edwards booked into Highgrove Estate in Fuquay-Varina. After noticing there were only spaces for the name of the 'bride' and 'groom' on the online form written in the notes that they were 'groom and groom'.
Two days later received a reply refusing them because the owner has chosen not to participate in same-sex weddings and offering them alternative venues.
The venue - which charges around $4,000 to $7,500 for ceremonies - sent the statement which said: 'God says in the Bible that marriage is between a man and a woman and we choose to honor Him above what the world decides what marriage should be.'
