Otago Daily Times 11 September 2014
Travis McIntosh and Matt McCormick wrote their wedding vows yesterday, brimming with ”nervous excitement” about their big day.
The Dunedin men will marry tomorrow, but their move has horrified gay groups.
The pair are heterosexual best mates.
Engineering student Mr McIntosh (23) and teacher Mr McCormick (24) will tie the knot to win a The Edge radio station competition and a trip to the 2015 Rugby World Cup in England.
Mr McCormick said from Auckland yesterday opposition to the wedding was understandable but the pair never intended to offend anyone.
”We are not here to insult anyone. We are here to do our own thing and travel our own path.”
