Gay Marriage is now legal in the UK, but should we stick with the civil partnership?

Gay marriage has just been made legal in the UK. Prior to this, gay and lesbian couples could only have a civil partnership but not be married. All the civil partnership ceremonies I have been to were weddings in all but petty legal technicality and in each case the registrar performing them did so exactly in the spirit of their being weddings. I am due to be civilly partnered (rolls of the tongue doesn't it?) to my female partner next year. When we booked our civil partnership this year, gay marriage was not legal. Now that they are, what should we choose?
