Same-sex marriage: Minutes after midnight, 'dream team' Craig and Luke get married

First & foremost, the most important thing anyone can take from this momentous occasion is that LOVE IS LOVE. It was beyond beautiful seeing two people who loved each other the way these two did become something so much & to finally be recognised by law in Australia was a proud moment for this country. 

Luke & Craig being the first legally married gay couple in Australia in the early hours of Tuesday "morning" at 12:01am having their nearest & dearest close by, what a way to enter the beginning of 2018! Im sure neither of these two could have imaged a better start to this year. 

Vendors from all over the Gold Coast donated all things from food, to the Instakombi, Cakes, awesome celebrant Sarah & acoustic artist Benny Hanna all the way to the amazing venue of Summergrove Estate. It was so wonderful seeing so many vendors in the wedding industry donate their time & hard work to see something so special mark something so significant in Australia's history.

Starting our day with the boys getting ready it was a little different for us doing the day back to front, but was a great day none the less. We enjoyed spending time with the both of them getting to know them & bearing witness to just how in-love Craig & Luke are. The entire photo's section was a breeze, you didn't need to say a word but to just let them both indulge in one another so beautifully the moments were unfolding effortlessly. 

As the night carried on so did the great times, everyone was enjoying the amazing Woodfire Pizza & Pop Taco which were both a big hit!! Not to mention the Instakombi which is always super popular when it comes to weddings & big events.

Before long it was time for the big moment, everyone gathered in the latest addition to the Summergrove property which might I add was just perfect for this occasion! When the time came you could only see how happy it made both of them to be now married to one another, as fireworks went off in the background it was spectacular! Following the ceremony the first dance & not long after their awesome sparkler & fireworks exit to finish what was a fairytale ending for these two.


Words can't even begin to explain how happy it made our team to be apart of something so special, & we thank every one of the vendors involved for playing such a big part in this magical day.
