Best signature wedding drinks for your special day

It's time to get creative with your wedding drinks selection

There is so much more to wedding life than your standard drinks package. Yes, beer, wine and basic spirits are a good base to start with but don’t stop there! Get creative with your drinks selection and spoil your guests with mouth-watering drinks they can’t stop talking about.


When it comes to creating the ultimate garden party themed wedding day we certainly aren’t modest. The team at Gabbinbar Homestead have nailed the concept and provide all the ingredients to create a stunning garden party that your guests will love. A key part of our garden parties is the Pimm’s station where your guests can create a refreshing and fruity drink which not only looks fab but tastes great too.


We must admit that our scotch and port station, set up in our library is a massive hit with the boys. Your guests can channel their inner James Bond as they enjoy a scotch on the rocks, surrounded by the history and charm of our library.


Hit two birds with one stone as they say and set up an affogato station after your main is served. Affogato’s are a favourite dessert cocktail, combining coffee, ice cream and liquor…. Yes, please!

Whether you're planning a summer garden wedding or a cosy winter wedding, you can really add a unique touch to your day by serving a variety of different drinks to your wedding guests during the different stages of the day. Gabbinbar Homestead has this covered with our extensive drinks package, just ask our wedding planning team for some help.
