Marriage of Paul McCarthy and Trent Kandler

(Community Recognition Statement, Legislative Assembly, NSW Parliament)

I add the Sydney electorate's congratulations to Trent Kandler and Paul McCarthy on their recent wedding in Wellington on Monday 18 August.

They join a growing number of Australian same-sex couples who leave the country they love to marry the person they love. The celebrant at the wedding was Kerry Prendergast, a former Wellington mayor. I look forward to joining the couple and the member for Lake Macquarie when they return home to celebrate their wedding,
