City of Sydney offers free weddings to gay couples 1st 100 days

City of Sydney has offered free use of halls etc for gay weddings for the first 100 days of marriage equality becoming law.

I didn't even know they charged for parks being used. My late wife and I were married in Centennial Park in Randwick at the Rose Gardens and it cost absolutely nothing.
"The gay and lesbian community have been discriminated against for a long time. "

Allowing them access to fee waivers is a practical way the City of Sydney can support people to be able to get married." 

Lord Mayor Clover Moore, whose support pushed the motion through, agreed. 

 "A celebratory gesture for a hundred days for a group that has been so sidelined and discriminated against for so long," she said. 

 The Lord Mayor said the council had been approached by the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages to have a mass wedding at the Town Hall if same-sex marriage were legalised following a majority Yes vote in the postal survey. ABC
