I want to make it very clear that I support same sex weddings. Marriages between two loving people, whether gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, transgender or straight are supported – I want to capture love.
I had the absolute joy of capturing Nic and Di’s partnership ceremony earlier in the year. The funny thing was, as I had spent 10 years in the UK prior to starting my business, I didn’t even realise that Australia was so behind the times and that same sex marriages were not legal.
The partnership ceremony was a joy, but it certainly was marred by the fact that they were treated differently. I was a little confused as to why. What would be the reason for this?
So when the yes vote finally passed and same sex marriages finally became legal in Australia, to me it was more a correction of a wrong, than a step forward. Discrimination against any kind of love and commitment seems bizarre.
I am a vendor who, whilst I don’t have a plethora of gay and lesbian friends, support and encourages same sex weddings. I will probably, like always, put my foot in my mouth as I am not up with current jargon and labels as they have never been my thing. However, if you make me cry at your ceremony, I will be a happy lady. I will in return provide you with gorgeous, timeless images to celebrate your day.
I love the stories, I love the interactions and I love the joy that all weddings bring. If you love each other and are committed to each other, please contact me to support your same sex wedding.
