A big well done to Australia and congratulations to the LGBT community. It has been a long road but democracy has won. It is now fair, legal and accepting for all walks of life in Australia to love one another and be united in marriage not based on gender. Love was never gender based in the dictionary and marriage was actually never stipulated to be between a man and a woman only until religion and laws came along. Being a celebrant who has done many “same sex commitment ceremonies”, it now gives me great honour and pleasure to be able to actually “MARRY” these same sex and LGBT couples legally. No longer will I have to state by law “marriage according to the law in Australia is between a MAN and a WOMAN, to the exclusion of all others”, it has been changed to “marriage according to the law in Australia is between a two persons, to the exclusion of all others”
It is now a wonderful opportunity to celebrate your existing relationship and publicly affirm your commitment to one another.
I have vast experience with same sex commitment ceremonies in the past, and would be happy to help make your day and your ceremony just the way you want it.
Same Sex LGBT wedding services include:
- Creation of a ceremony reflective of your spiritual, cultural and family traditions
- Unlimited contact- phone calls and emails
- Resources, readings and poems to choose from
- A beautiful ‘Presentation Copy’ of your wedding ceremony
