One of Australia’s leading wedding magazines is shutting down after it refused to feature same-sex couples.

Luke and Carla Burrell, founders of White Magazine, said advertisers had abandoned them in droves.

The Christian couple said they made the choice because they had “no desire to create a social, political or legal war”.

Australia legalised gay marriage in December last year after the country overwhelmingly voted in favour of it.

In a farewell post on its website, the magazine’s founders said they had been targeted by “a flood of judgement,” and that couples they featured had been sent online abuse.

White Magazine has always been a secular publication, but as its publishers, we are Christian. We have no agenda but to love,” they wrote.

“Like many people, we have had to reflect on our beliefs,” the founders wrote. “It’s a long and continuing journey.”
