A gay couple who booked a registry office wedding right next door to US President Donald Trump’s arraignment in New York have taken a hilarious wedding photo.

The newlyweds, Daniel and Chris, spoke to NBC reporter Ben Collins who shared the hilarious wedding snap to Twitter (below).

The couple are embracing and holding their wedding bouquet with a crowd of protesters in the background.

“Daniel and Chris met a year ago today,” the reporter wrote.

“That’s why, a few weeks ago, they decided to get married this afternoon.

“They just left the clerk’s office — right as news broke that former President Donald Trump’s motorcade is about to arrive so he can be arrested.”


“Love trumps hate,” one person tweeted in response.

“It’s like arraign on your wedding day,” another tweeted, channeling Alanis.

The two men were around a dozen couples also tying the knot at the City Clerk’s Office on Tuesday.

But right next door is New York County Criminal Court, where Donald Trump became the first US President in history to face criminal charges.

He was fingerprinted, processed, and arraigned on 34 counts of falsifying business records after arranging to pay hush money to porn star Stormy Daniels.

Meanwhile, crowds of anti-Trump protesters outnumbered his supporters as they waited with media behind barricades.

‘No one is above the law’

Another gay couple who wed earlier in the day, Jason and Dominic, booking the ceremony months ago.

Dominic told NBC News the fact that Trump was being formally arrested the day of their wedding made it “more joyful.”

“It’s something we’ll never forget, that’s for sure,” he said.

Daniel and Chris didn’t even realise the clash until a work colleague pointed it out that day.

The couple told Rolling Stone they both dislike the former President, and saw the symbolism in the dual events.

“No one is above the law,” he told Rolling Stone.

“Marriage is a legal thing, it’s a contract, something that you should honor and abide by.

“We made our promises to each other that we have to keep, so we intend on doing that.”
