Tori Spelling becomes a Reverend

Tori Spelling has been ordained as a minister and performed a same-sex wedding.

The actress performed the ceremony at the bed and breakfast, Chateau La Rue, she runs with husband Dean McDermott, after becoming a minister over the internet.

Tori revealed on her MySpace page: "I am now officially ordained!

"Yep, that's right - Reverend Tori Spelling! I did it last week online and my official certificate is in the mail.

"I was so honoured when the couple asked me to officiate. We did it on the front steps of the Chateau as 40 of their friends looked on seated in a lounge-like atmosphere. It was so beautiful as I united Tony and Dex as life partners in love."

The former Beverly Hills 90210 actress says performing the ceremony was the most nerve-wracking thing she has ever had to do.

Tori said: "I was beyond nervous. I've done live theatre and presented at the Emmys but this was by far my scariest moment simply because they had bestowed such an honour upon me and I didn't want to let them down.

"Love is pure and true, love knows no gender. I've found it, Tony and Dex have found it, and I wish love to all that seek it. Don't ever let anyone tell you who to love.

Only our hearts can dictate that."

The 34-year-old's bed and breakfast is featured in the reality TV show Tori and Dean Inn Love.
