The photo’s caption said that Beth, 32 and 34 year-old Kristin were taking some time to ‘bask in the afterglow’ of the ceremony.

‘At long last, now that we have returned home and recovered from all the amazingness and had some time to bask in the afterglow, we are exited to share with you a pic or two from Beth and Kristin's wedding!’ said the post.

The post also revealed that Beth's all-white 'dream' wedding gown had been designed by Jean Paul Gaultier, and thanked guests - who were also dressed in white - for attending.

It's going to be really spiritual and cool, and like, lesbian and really female-centric. And awesome.

‘So much love and appreciation to all of our family and friends who celebrated with us! And a huge thank you to Jean Paul Gaultier for the dream-come-true dress!'

Although the exact date of the wedding is unknown, Beth announced back in May that she would marry girlfriend Kristin on June 1.

Speaking to a music website two months ago, she said: ‘We found this really beautiful place that used to be a sugar plantation that was owned by the workers. It's on Maui. It's going to be super-traditional, but untraditional in the way that it's going to be done by a Hawaiian priestess. Isn’t that awesome?’

She continued: ‘It's going to be really spiritual and cool, and like, lesbian and really female-centric. And awesome.’

Beth also revealed that her whole family, who are supportive of her same-sex marriage, would attend the wedding.

‘Everyone has to wear white. Everyone. It'll look like a cult. It's gonna be awesome!’ she said.

We've been best friends for years

Beth and Kristin – who have been together for three years and friends for much longer – have always known they would get married.

‘I met her when I was 18. She knew me as a kid, fresh from Arkansas, young and dumb and awesome. We've been best friends for years,’ said Beth.

‘We had an agreement that when I was 32 and she was 34, we would get married. We got together three years ago, and a year ago she was like, “Let's get married!”’
