NewlywedsIt’s a moment that Christine Forster and Virginia Flitcroft thought might never happen. Christine in a pantsuit with long jacket, Virginia in a navy, 1950s-style frock — standing in front of a wall of flowers waiting to say “I do”.

And there, sitting in the front row is a family member who spent years campaigning against same-sex marriage: Christine Forster’s brother, Tony Abbott.

Ms Forster and her long-time partner Virginia Flitcroft married on Friday in a cocktail party-style wedding in the centre of Sydney, overlooking the harbour and Botanical Gardens.
