What makes a gay same sex marriage different to a heterosexual marriage in Australia?

Related to Legalities

Firstly, gay same sex marriages are generally referred to as a committment ceremonies, and secondly there is no legal paperwork.

No, not at present (2016). In order for a gay marriage to be recognised by the Australian Government, the law (in Australia) would need to be changed accordingly.

What makes your ceremonies different to other Celebrants?

Related to General

My ceremonies are best described as short, punchy, upbeat, and light-hearted whilst being highly professional. I tend to work with couples who are looking for something more relaxing, fun, yet polished and memorable. I do not stand between the couple (during the ceremony), in fact I stand well-clear of the central focal point (photographers love this). I also perform the entire ceremony completely from memory, without notes (although I do carry an iPad for effect only).
