LONDON, Feb. 24 (UPI) -- In what they called a victory against religious injustice, a British couple have become the first to marry in a Church of Scientology chapel in England.

The ceremony took place five years after officials refused to register the church's London chapel as a place of marriage, the Guardian reported Sunday.

The couple, Alessandro Calcioli and Louisa Hodkin, both 25, sued to have their religious rights recognized and in December, the supreme court sided with them. Justices ruled the chapel was a "place of meeting for religious worship" and overturned a 1970 ruling that religious worship involved a supreme being.
