Tourism NZ offers Aussie gay couples the chance to wed

Tourism New Zealand has announced it is looking for a same-sex couple from Australia to fly to the country to marry on the first day the new Marriage Amendment Act in enforced. The tourism body has announced it is on the hunt for a gay couple willing to fly to New Zealand to become the first legally wed same-sex couple in the country.

Tourism New Zealand has said it will fly out the lucky couple, along with eight guests, to the country for a ceremony that will take place on the 19th August, the day the new marriage act is enforced. The board is inviting Australians to take part in the competition to become the first legally wed couple, in a bid to highlight how easy it will be for gay couples to fly to the country in order to get married.
Couple at Pride

“We are excited to be making history and working with one lucky same-sex couple to become the very first from Australia to be married here in New Zealand," said Tim Burgess, Tourism New Zealand’s general manager Australia.

However, the union will not be recognised back in the couples’ homeland, after a bill to acknowledge overseas unions in Australia was voted down last week. Tourism New Zealand is still hopeful that many couples from Australia will fly to the country, in order to get a license and get married.
Wedding Cake

The location in which the wedding will take place has yet to be announced by the tourism board. According to Tourism New Zealand's Facebook page, all will be revealed on the 19th July. The lucky couple who wins the competition will win return flights, accommodation for them and eight guests and the all important wedding ceremony.
