“The recent marriage equality debate, vote and subsequent redefining of the marriage law has shown that Australians truly believe that marriage is for everyone and that all Australians deserve to have their love celebrated and recognised,” Lifeview CEO Madeline Gall said.

The operator – which is Rainbow Tick accredited as LGBTI-inclusive – will provide the venue, celebrant, flowers, music, catering and Scotchmans Hill Wines worth $2,000.

“All we need are the brides and/or grooms, and fifty of their closest family and friends,” Ms Gall adds.

Festival attendees will be able to enter the draw at the Lifeview stand with the winners to be announced on Valentine’s Day.

To round out the Festival, Lifeview residents, staff and their families will also be taking part in the Pride March on 29 January under the banner ‘Pride Comes in all Ages’.
