Glasgow Commonwealth Games sprinter Craig Burns and his partner of three years, fellow athlete Luke Sullivan, have tied the knot just minutes into today (Jan. 09), the first-day same-sex couples can legally marry without a waiver in Australia.
 
The couple wed shortly after midnight in an intimate country ceremony attended by 50 of their closest family and friends at Summergrove Estate at Carool in the New South Wales Northern Rivers Hinterland.
 
Burns admitted he had not considered marriage until he met Sullivan.
 
"It's another way to show your love and appreciation of your partner in front of the people in your life," Burns said.
 
"Not being able to do that it kind of sucks a bit — you want to be able to show your partner you love them."
 
Sullivan has been bombarded with messages of support on social media.
 
"My Instagram direct messages have blown up with people I have never met I don't know who are just sending love and congratulations, it's really touching," he said.
