I am now officially able to offer my services for same sex weddings in Melbourne. The Australian Government has passed the bill and marriage equality has finally won! This is exciting times for Australia.
The new paperwork comes into effect from 9th December 2017 and is legally recognised, regardless of gender.
A section of the Monitum will state that “marriage according to law in Australia is the union of two people…”
Like any celebration and ceremony, the options are vast and a tailored service can be produced to illustrate your relationship. You might like to include a special reading by a family member or friend, or perhaps include a ritual of your choice. Ideas can be discussed during our meeting.
No matter which options you choose, your marriage ceremony will be an important aspect of your day of celebrations.#loveislove I have always been supportive of same sex relationships and I do hope to help many more couples celebrate their love and union with a legally recognised marriage ceremony.
If you would like to chat further about what I can offer as a same sex celebrant, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
