Finally!!! Australia took a huge step forward in human rights with a gigantic big YES to Marriage Equality. It is so good and affirming to see the Australian public and culture has expanded in consciousness, and opened their hearts to the undeniable truth that Love is Love! From December 2017 parliament implemented the changes to the Legislation that now allows Same Sex couples to get married in Australia! Yay Yay Yay! The joy that came from that shift will go on forever!
Personally, I have been a huge advocate of this change for many years. Having performed many commitment ceremonies for LGBT couples over the past 10 years, I have felt the injustice and downright embarrassment of the former denial, so I am absolutely thrilled to my pinkies that finally the same privilege is now afforded to any couple in love, regardless of gender.
It’s so great to say “the union of 2 people” rather than “of a man and woman” I see gatherings from all weddings smile and nod from their hearts with the unleashing of this new phrase. And then…. It gives me great happiness thrills and chills to pronounce you:
Wife & Wife
Husband & Husband
Married at Last
Partners for Life
Partners in Crime
Or what ever you like to be referred as!
Love is Love lets declare it and celebrate it.
I will be happy to make your ceremony sparkle with love and joy.
"We were married by Shiney on the 12th Nov 2018 at Figtree Restaurant. And all we can say is WOW! It was a destination wedding for us and we selected Shiney based on her bio and reviews from others and boy are we glad we did. This lady is so full of warmth, love and kindness and oozes charm, calming energy and support. She made the ceremony so full of love combined with laughter that our guests have not stopped raving about it. Shiney made the day feel perfectly like ‘us’. There were tears of happiness combined with laughter; fun, warmth and she contributed such a genuine human element full of life and spirit. Quite simply she is fun, cool and able to instantly connect with you. In only a brief time she perfectly understood us, what we wanted from the day and then executed a beautiful ceremony. We didn’t want it to end and wished we could do it all over again. Do not hesitate in choosing Shiney for your special day.
Thanks Shiney for helping us to become wives. It’s a day we won’t ever forget and you will always hold a special place with us" Renee and Jen Xx
