This morning the Australian Bureau of Statistics announced the results of the Australian Marriage Law Postal Survey.
Australia has said yes (61.6%), and it's a happy day for couples across our great country who will soon be able to join in the wonderful celebration of marriage.
This has been a long journey to this point, and it's not over yet. I am fine with religious exemptions to continue to be a feature of the Act (nothing really has to change here). This is after all why the civil celebrant program exists. I do not support the same exemption being available to civil celebrants or other businesses involved in celebrating marriage.
I will never refuse to celebrate someone's marriage regardless of how this legislation pans out.
Members of the LBGTQI community have waited long enough.
To celebrate with you I am offering a 38.4% discount on all packages for couples who book and pay deposits between now and 31 December 2017 on 2018 dates.
Congratulations Australia, you've made history today and we look forward to celebrating more love in 2018 and beyond.
