On Wednesday 29 March 2012, the first mass same-sex TV wedding in Australia
After an audience member proposed to her girlfriend live on air, Adam Hills
, one of Australia's most popular comedians, decided to hold a mass TV wedding of same-sex couples, AKA the Big Gay Wedding, on his show Adam Hills In Gordon Street Tonight
His assistant, Hannah Gadsby, interviewed the almost-newlyweds.
And a Bucks and Hens night was held. And then, finally, the big day arrived
(same link as on the front page).
A sixpence was sent in by an 88 year old (straight) bride for luck. (Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a silver sixpence in her shoe.)
Adam Ant was the wedding singer. And of course what wedding would be complete without a Facebook wedding album
Note: this wedding is not legally binding. Some Australian states recognise same-sex civil unions, but "same-sex marriages are currently not permitted under Australian federal law".
