Virgin Holidays continue to celebrate gay marriage with honeymoon giveaway
Virgin Holidays has continued its celebration of same sex marriage by providing a couple their dream honeymoon for free, following a competition.
Dino and Matt were treated to a honeymoon in Las Vegas, and will be writing a blog post on the experience when they return.
Virgin founder Richard Branson – who sent the lucky couple a telegraph – said: “Virgin Holidays teamed up with Attitude magazine to offer a gay couple getting married this year their dream honeymoon with Virgin Holidays+HIP Hotels.
“The winners were Dino and Matt, who were nominated by one of their friends, who just had to tell us why they should be our ‘Mr & Mr’. They’ve been together for more than a decade and have poured everything they have into creating a day of celebration for their friends, to such an extent that they then couldn’t afford a honeymoon.”
