Same sex couples share wedding day moments in latest Vote Yes campaign

Leo Burnett Melbourne has created a montage of same sex couples on their wedding day, sharing emotional moments of their family friends during different wedding ceremonies.

‘Vote Yes: For every Bachelor and Bachelorette’, premiered last night during the finale of The Bachelor.

Airbag, ARC Edit, Manimal and Nylon teamed up with Leo Burnett to produce the ad while Wrigley’s Extra donated the media placement.

Andrew Woodhead, creative director at Leo Burnett, said in a statement: “Choosing The Bachelor finale was a purposeful move to not only target a certain demographic, but to make the point that everyone should have the right to get married.”

Tim Gartell, The Equality Campaign Director, said opportunities like this help the campaign stand out and cut through the noise around marriage equality.

“Australians know this is about a fair go for all and allowing people to just get on with their lives with the person they love. Marriage Equality takes from no one and makes our country a fairer and more inclusive place to live.”

The campaign follows another Yes campaign which debuted on September 7 and featured Ian Thorpe and Russell Greene encouraging people to vote yes on their postal slips.
