Yes, my friends, I am willing to get a little political on you, because in my eyes it’s the right thing to do. What’s more, marriage equality was the right thing to do, and finally we did it, Australia! Yahoo!
Australia said yes in a massively unnecessary plebescite vote, and fortunately our government followed suit by passing the law to allow same sex couples to legally marry in Australia.
In celebration of this, we are sharing with you a mock wedding styled shoot with real life couple, Samuel and Chris. Watching the above film I’m sure you can all see the beauty of true love in all the shapes, sizes and sexual orientations it comes in. Further evidence of this can be found in the images below by Candi Photography at The Lakehouse Sunshine Coast.
What’s in a name?
I feel the need to mention this, because I’m sure if not now at some point it will come up. The Bride’s Tree was aptly named in its conception back in 2011. It was not in any way meant to be exclusionary of anyone at all. And we hope moving forward our actions will speak louder than our name, which by any other would feel just as deeply committed to marriage equality.
