There have been two major events this past week that has encouraged reactions from many many people including me and I can’t help but compare some symbolism in the two. The first was the death of the great Nelson Mandela and the second was the happening of same sex marriage in Canberra. How can I compare the two you ask? Well read on and I will explain my understanding of how the two compare.
A marriage under the Act can only take place in the ACT. But you do not have to live in the ACT to be married there.
The weather man has been threatening all week cold and rain but the weather gods had the last say and they must have liked yesterdays and todays couples because the sun shone down on all of us yesterday at the Fairfield Amphitheater yesterday and even though it did get a bit chilly today, the rain held off and the clouds made a great backdrop at Pier 10 in Shoreham.
It was a bit dicey at first but the weather turned out to be beautiful for a wedding at the very picturesque Morning Star Estate on the Mornington Peninsula.
Today’s wedding was so small; I had to provide my husband as one of the witnesses, (all part of the service).
