GABBINBAR HOMESTEAD, THE WEDDING EXPERIENCE
Ok, I’ll be honest – Gabbinbar is my absolute favourite venue to film a wedding in the whole of South East Queensland.
This 148-year-old grand homestead sits on 13 acres up on the Toowoomba Ranges. It used to be governor’s residence, so it’s very fancy with manicured gardens, ancient trees and a lot of opulence and grandeur. If you’ve been planning your fairy-tale wedding since you were young, you’ll want to have it here.
ABOUT THE GABBINAR HOMESTEAD
The homestead began hosting weddings in 2012. They offer couples the entire estate, encouraging them to think of it as home for the day. And what a home! Inside the grand entrance, you’ll find many rooms to explore, including a glass conservatory, ballroom, sitting rooms, drawing room and library. There are plenty of historical features like crystal chandeliers, marble and slate mantelpieces, French doors, leadlight windows and wide verandas. Outside, there are gorgeous grounds – wise old trees on the lawns, large fountains and long driveways. But enough about the estate – what about the wedding experience?
