Marriage equality on Magnetic Island

Only a few months after the Marriage Act 1961 was amended to allow for same sex marriage, my first gay couple came to be married in paradise. What a lead up it was, after getting the call from Luke before the legislation was passed in Parliament. He was more confident than me, that it would take no time at all for legal weddings between same sex couples to be able to take place. I was expecting a few months for it to come into law, but everything was already prepared in expectation of the result. It was December 7th when Parliament voted in the amendment, from two days later on December 9th, couples could give their Notice of Intended Marriage form to a celebrantm giving 30 days notice. Matt
