“There’s power in love. Don’t underestimate it. Don’t even over-sentimentalise. There is power, power in love. Love can help and heal when nothing else can. There’s power in love to lift up and liberate when nothing else will.”

The Most Rev Michael Curry, Bishop and Primate of the American Episcopal Church.

“People applauded when the declaration of marriage was made… It’s really quite special to watch a service in a church setting with Brits, US citizens, Russians and people from around the world. In the current tensions, especially here in Moscow, it is a great thing to bring us together – perhaps an example of the power of love spoken about by the preacher.”
The Rev Canon Malcolm Rogers, chaplain of St Andrew’s Anglican Church, Moscow, to which the service was relayed.

“This marriage will change the world.”
