Orange Is the New Black fan favourite Samira Wiley, who played Poussey Washington on the show, has got hitched over the weekend to her partner Lauren Morelli, a writer for the hit show.

They were married on Saturday afternoon in an intimate ceremony in Palm Springs, California, wearing custom Christian Siriano designs – Samira’s was an off-the-shoulder ball gown number, while Lauren wore a pant suit with a cape.

The ceremony was officiated by Samira’s parents, with the two brides walking back up the aisle to Montell Jordan’s “This Is How We Do It”.

The gorgeous couple met on the set of Orange Is The New Black and Lauren has said she realised she was gay while shooting the show, and divorced her husband of two years.   After coming out, she and Samira began dating.

LGBT visibility. Don't ever sleep on how utterly essential this is. Thank you, @outmagazine. #meandmylady
