Ash & Paris – Deciding to Not Invite Parents to Our Wedding

Lesbian brides eloping to get married on the Whitsundays Airlie Beach Australia

Paris and I met where many gay folks meet – Tinder. For me, it was love at first sight. I knew I wanted to marry her from the moment she dropped me home from our first date.

We have gone through some extreme hardships in our relationship, from financial trouble, to dealing with my horribly homophobic family. However, we pushed through it together and came out the other side. I don’t know where I would be without her; she truly saved my life.

I made the difficult decision not to have any family members attend our wedding. I spent a few days crying about it and wondering if I should just invite them (even if I was not sure if they would actually come). In the end, not having them there was the best decision I could have made. We had a fantastic time with Paris’ immediate family exploring Airlie Beach. Our celebrant Annie was so calming, and our planner Stacey made the whole day so special for us. The weather was perfect, and we just walked out of our villa onto the lawn where we were getting married. It was absolutely perfect.
