Same-Sex Marriage

At last we have marriage equality!! I’m SO pleased that everyone has the same rights under Australian law and I’m excited to be able to marry the loving couples who’ve waited a long time for their happiness to be fully realised!

Marriage according to law is the union of two people to the exclusion of all others voluntarily entered into for life.

I’ve already conducted ceremonies for same-sex couples who made life-long commitments to one another… some of these have been called weddings, others not, but all of them have been have been wonderful celebrations!

I’m looking forward to hearing your ideas and plans, and if you don’t know where to start, I can help you.

The long history of marriage is really interesting and it’s great that at last marriage hasĀ evolved – as it always has.

 

So what’s new? Every person now has the option of calling themselves Bride, Groom or Partner regardless of gender.

If you’re a traditionalist nothing changes (apart from the wording of the Monitum), but if you’re someone who’s waited a long time for this change, I imagine your whole world has changed!
