On April 17, 2013, a bill for legislation was passed in the NZ Government and on 19 August, 2013, same sex marriage became legal in New Zealand! It was a momentous occasion and represented a vitally important time in history and in the recognition and rites of millions of people. I am so proud to be a kiwi at this time.
Since then thousands of same sex couples from New Zealand and overseas have been married in New Zealand.
I proudly welcome all people who wish to marry and to express and share their love for each other.
