A same sex commitment ceremony is often very similar to that of most weddings, the only difference being that it is not a legally binding one, but simply a public affirmation of a couples' commitment to one another. Although same sex marriages are not yet a legal option in Australia, The Relationships Act 2008 was passed by the Victorian Parliament in April 2008 and came into effect on 1 December 2008. Couples are able to register their relationship with the Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages and have that relationship recognised under Victorian law. Two local councils, Melbourne and Yarra, have also introduced relationship registers. Although they do not confer legal rights in the way a marriage does, they allow couples to make a written declaration that they are mutually committed to sharing their lives together. Like a wedding, a commitment ceremony can be large or small, quiet or festive. Both are celebrations and the perfect way to publicly express vows of love and commitment in front of friends and family. The following elements have been provided to act as a guide, in helping you to plan a ceremony that that is perfect for you.
