So we find ourselves, here in 2018 and we are ready for a new beginning.
2017 brought us so many amazing accomplishments, however I think we can all agree that there was none no bigger or more wanted than Marriage Equality. After years of campaigning and the most highly participated postal vote in our country's history, Australia responded with a resounding YES and our government acted quickly, making it a reality before the year drew to a close.
For us, we couldn't be more excited. From the start, we have been passionate about sharing stories from Australian couples who, regardless of whether it was going to be legal or not, took the plunge and celebrated their love. We are so excited to see that every single one of them are now legally married in Australia. Congratulations!
So what will 2018 bring? With Sally, our Editor, on board, our Chronicles will continue to grow, showcasing the most exclusive and luxurious wedding merchants from all over Australia and New Zealand. And what about print? We absolutely loved creating Volume 1 of Groom + Guy and we cannot wait to put mouse to Illustrator to do it all again, so please watch this space!
Thank you for your support in 2017 and I look forward to seeing 2018 through with you.
