The wedding I went to yesterday was one of the nicest and most simple I’ve been to in a long time. There were about 50 guests maximum, the bride looked relaxed and happy, the groom, my old school mate, was having a great time and it’s so nice to see two people who really do seem to compliment each other beautifully.

One of the girls from school was saying that her mother is going to be a registered marriage celebrant and was asking her if she and her partner, another woman, were ever going to get married. That started the discussion about whether or not it’s worth doing while it’s not legally recognised. I’ve never seen the point in gay people having a traditional faith based service but I’m all for standing up in front of my friends and making a committment. One day, if Mr Right ever happens along, all my friends and family will find themselves at a huge bbq and we’ll surprise them with an exchanging of rings. That’s how I see it. What would you do?
