We have noticed that there has been a lot of interest from overseas visitors wanting to travel to New Zealand in order to take advantage of the same sex marriage bill, and a good place to start looking is The Department of Internal Affairs, here is a checklist for getting married. We can Also recommend a great same sex marriage celebrant.
Same-sex marriage became legal in New Zealand on 19 August 2013. A bill for the introduction of same-sex marriage was passed by the New Zealand House of Representatives on 17 April 2013 by 77 votes to 44 and received Royal Assent on 19 April 2013. It entered into force four months after assent, to allow time for the Department of Internal Affairs to make the necessary changes for marriage licensing and related documentation. New Zealand is the first country in Oceania and the fifteenth overall to allow same-sex couples to marry.
Founding member and lead photographer Adel is proud of New Zealand’s stance on equal rights. Adel is actively involved in New Zealand’s Gay Community. She volunteers her time doing design, layout and photography for the Tamaki Makaurau Lesbian Newsletter (TMLN), and has been involved with Heroes out West in the past.
