Nicholas and Gabrielle celebrated their wedding day at Gabbinbar Homestead alongside 90 of their closest friends and family in June of this year. It was a beautiful afternoon with the ceremony hosted at ‘Old Gates’ followed by a tea ceremony in ‘The Pavilion’. As the sun went down guests moved inside to the ‘Conservatory’ for the reception, dancing the night away.
Nicholas and Gabrielle met when Gabrielle started a new job and as we all know when you start a new job there are often a number of visits to the IT department to sort out your computer. Nicholas was Gabrielle’s go-to IT guy, the romance blossomed and Nicholas proposed on Christmas Day. The proposal took place in no other than the romantic town of London. Nicholas and Gabrielle decided to walk off their delicious lunch with a stroll through the iconic streets of London, admiring the beautiful Georgian styled buildings. Gabrielle was keen to keep the pace up but Nicholas insisted on detouring through a park called Berkeley Square. Storming ahead in protest, Gabrielle turned around only to find Nicholas down on one knee in the mud (typical London weather) asking Gabrielle to marry him.
After travelling around the United Kingdom for several weeks, Nicholas and Gabrielle were looking for a wedding venue which encompassed history similar to the monuments, brimming with heritage which they visited together on their overseas adventure. Gabbinbar Homestead certainly ticked that box and most importantly, Gabrielle and Nicholas could create the wedding they desired at Gabbinbar Homestead. Describing their style as ‘Organic’ the décor was natural, warm, elegant and timeless. The neutral palette used across the floral arrangements alongside the sea of candlelight, certainly created a romantic atmosphere. Gabrielle enlisted the help of Poppies for Willow to help her achieve the ‘Organic’ style she was after, I’m sure you would agree they nailed it!
Struggling to narrow it down to a favourite moment, Gabrielle and Nicholas both agreed, “it was the best day of our lives. Having so many loved ones in the one place makes for such an amazing day, it's so special to feel loved and supported.” Gabrielle and Nicholas had some helpful advice for other couples. “Try not to take the planning too seriously, have fun with it and remember you don't have to do everything yourself.”
