It goes without saying that Gabbinbar Homestead is renowned for our selection of photo locations across the estate. In fact, we have over 100 different photo locations on the estate. It doesn’t matter if you’re looking for a simple and elegant backdrop for your photos or something more rustic, we’re sure you’ll find a spot which you’ll simply fall in love with. It’s been difficult but we’ve managed to narrow down our top 5 favourite photo locations found across the Gabbinbar Homestead estate.
Simple, rustic and oozing with charm. The ‘Old School House’ is nestled just beside the main homestead so it’s literally a minute’s walk from all of our ceremony locations. We love the ‘Old School House’ because you get the best of both worlds. Its brown rustic exterior is perfect if you would like an earthy, country feel to your photos. Or step inside for a photo which is slightly more elegant and formal. The wooden floorboards combined with the classic chandelier give your photos a completely different look.
With the exterior covered in a sea of green and white jasmine vines, the ‘Stables’ is always a popular choice by many newlyweds. We have left the ‘Stables’ just as we found it to preserve the history of the estate. Inside the ‘Stables’ is the perfect photo location if you are blessed with rain on your wedding day. You will still get the opportunity for some breathtaking photos whilst staying warm and dry. Plus, head out at night after your reception to get some intimate shots underneath the pendant lights in the back corner of the ‘Stables’.
Located in the prime position on our front lawn, the ‘Magnolia Tree’ is hard to walk past without getting a quick snap. The permanent lanterns hanging from the branches provide that subtle ambient light and the green leaves really make the light tones of your wedding dress pop.
At many wedding venues, the driveway is purely for practical purposes but at Gabbinbar Homestead it’s a whole different story. Our ‘Driveway’ is one of our most popular photo locations. The light tones of the granite surface mixed with the rich green tones of the greenery lining the entire driveway make for a show-stopping photo.
‘The Woods’ can either be used as a ceremony location or a photo location or why not both? The tall trees make you feel a million miles away, just look at the photos below, you would never guess you are 10 minutes outside Toowoomba. Again, with most of our photo locations this spot isn’t limited to just day time shots. The festoon lights strung between the trees makes for the perfect night time shot, we’ve even had couples enjoy their first dance in ‘The Woods’.
Believe it or not but 2019 is upon us which means another round of interesting wedding dress trends will be hitting the aisles in no time. Before we hit the Christmas rush let’s take a look at the top wedding dress trends we’ll see in 2019. We’d have to admit that these wedding dress trends certainly push the boundaries and are probably suited to the modern-day bride looking for something a little different.Read More →
Summer is certainly a busy time of year here at Gabbinbar Homestead. It is our peak flower season and the temperatures in Toowoomba are typically cooler than the rest of Queensland with much lower humidity. We are often blessed with warm (not hot), blue sky days so it is no wonder a Summer time Gabbinbar wedding is one of the most popular choices for many couples.Read More →
