In the season return of Australian Story, we go behind the scenes of the country's most high-profile same-sex wedding. Like many families across the country, the family of Christine Forster and her brother, former prime minister Tony Abbott, was divided by the same-sex marriage debate. After 10 years together, Christine has married her long-term partner Virginia Flitcroft. But beyond the champagne, frocks and flowers is a story of overcoming heartbreak, regret and family divisions.
