NSW couple Abbey & Mitchell Johnston got married in Feb 15 this year, and took the opportunity to make a humorous but meaningful stand for marriage equality in Australia. Here is Abbey’s statement on Facebook, “Some of you may not know but for a marriage to be legal in Australia your celebrant has to state that a marriage is between a “man and a woman” only. Our celebrant had to say it but we certainly didnt have to listen to that absolute bull****. So we had our awesome celebrant to kindly ask our guests mid ceremony to cover their ears. I hope one day soon this terrible, archaic and unjust law is abolished in Australia. Untill then be kind, be proud and stand up for what you believe in. ‪#‎lovewins‬ ‪#‎lovewillalwayswin‬ ‪#‎marriageequality‬ ‪#‎loveislove‬”

Their story and photos have travelled the world, appearing on websites and newspapers everywhere. Thomas Stewart Photography was there to capture that very unique moment (he coined the term “Eargate” for the avalanche of media interest he’s experiencing), scroll down to see all the photos…
