Brisbane, QLD – The historic Gabbinbar Homestead was a private residence used by Queensland governors as their summer resort for 148 years before it began hosting weddings in 2012. It’s set amongst 150-year-old gardens, expansive lawns, and towering ancient trees, offering a magnificent estate for couples desiring a unique destination for their wedding. The wedding venue is high on the mountain range in the garden city of Toowoomba, Queensland, giving it a country feel with city convenience at its doorstep. When couples choose it for their wedding, they get exclusive use of the estate, where they and their guests enjoy the venue freely.
Gabbinbar Homestead has understated architectural elegance characterised by gothic revival features like beautiful diamond pattern led windows, high peaked gables, french doors, crystal chandeliers, and decorative moulding. Through the entryway is the conservatory reception space with a glass ceiling, cream walls, and warm timber floors, perfect as backdrops to all colour palettes, flowers, and themes. The original ballroom decor is a welcoming spot to dance the night away thanks to a baby grand piano and surround sound to create a memorable atmosphere. The ballroom is adjacent to the conservatory for an easy flow from dancing to dining.
The brisbane wedding planner promises The Gabbinar Experience, an all-inclusive package offering couples everything they need to have an incredible day. These wedding packages can also be tailored to fit a couple’s needs based on their tastes or number of guests. The experience begins with a luxurious and relaxed preparation for a bride’s retreat on the morning of the wedding, where the team takes care of all details, allowing parties to focus on getting ready for their ceremony. The package includes lunch and drinks for the bride and five special people they choose to accompany them on the morning of the wedding. Couples can choose from one of the magnificent ceremony locations or create a unique space within the grounds for a grand or intimate wedding that exudes natural beauty and charm.
Couples enjoy gardens filled with beautiful blooms, fresh greenery scents, and country air as they indulge in a lovely meal, drinks, garden games, and chic furniture. Through dreamy photography of the homestead, couples and guests can capture all the treasured moments of the wedding day within the grounds while enjoying a personalised catering team that follows them with food and beverages. The menu options have the finest ingredients and capture the country’s hospitality the region is known for. The kitchen team works hard to create an unforgettable experience for couples and their guests, and has been honoured as Queensland’s best caterers and Queensland’s best wedding caterers for two years running at the Australian Restaurant and Catering Association Awards.
