Every now and again, I have a very small, no frills wedding. I offer these ceremonies at a reduced fee to couples that are either getting married on the sly and don’t want anybody to know (elopement) or plan on having a big ceremony in another country but want to actually be married in Australia.

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.

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.
