Wedding Cake for Everyone! Industry supports marriage equality
Right across our nation, Australian residents are being asked to decide whether or not same-sex marriage should be legalised.
“The Wedding Cake for Everyone Morning Tea was beyond incredible. I’m still on a high from the day. I was overwhelmed by how many professionals donated their time, skills and beautiful products in support of same-sex marriage. We loved being together with like-minded wedding professionals at The Residences.
Lilac Zhang of Upside Down Events was the mastermind behind the morning tea, co-ordinating rainbow cakes and cake toppers, to sandwiches and rainbow signs. We feel this plebiscite is really important for all Australians – be it your friend, brother, sister, son, daughter, mother, father. I am proud to publicly show my support and work with a company that feels the same as I personally do.The morning tea was a chance to celebrate hope for a positive outcome, and remind people to vote!
Oh, and who doesn’t love any excuse to eat cake, right?!”
The Wedding Cake for Everyone Morning Tea was an initiative started by Jennie Keogh of The Weddings Experts – a growing online community of wedding suppliers in Australia. The event was held in eight different locations around Australia and planned by local suppliers in each location.
We were delighted to see such amazing support for marriage equality from wedding industry members. Some sceptics might say that industry support is based on economics – of course more people getting married means a stronger industry economy. But I think we can all agree: this vote is not based on economics. It’s based on equality and eliminating prejudice. Prejudice which really shouldn’t exist in this day and age.
