Today is the first official day same‑sex couples can wed in Australia and some have wasted no time marrying on the stroke of midnight.

At the stroke of midnight a new era was ushered in with same‑sex couples now officially able to wed in Australia.

Immediately couples around the country began their wedding vows with Australia the 25th country globally to recognise the unions.

Wasting no time to tie the knot were two athletes. Sprinter and Glasgow Commonwealth Games participant Craig Burns wed Luke Sullivan in a moonlit ceremony in northern NSW overnight.
