"A huge thank you to everyone for helping Chloe and I bring our vision to life. Absolutely everything was perfect from the months of planning through to the pick up the day after. The team never said no and were willing to try things they hadn't done before, we couldn't have asked them to be more accommodating.
The planning team were a huge support to Chloe and myself, both on the day and helping finalise the last few odds and ends in the lead-up. Their "nothing is a problem, we can take care of it: approach made us both feel at ease as we were left to enjoy the evening with our guests. It was comforting to know they were there and that we had an experienced team thinking over the things we missed or hadn't considered.
A huge thank you to the Front of House staff, who we are still getting compliments from. Our guests didn't want for anything and your team did an amazing job. They reflect the very high standards that Gabbinbar advertises and should be incredibly proud of the work they do.
Last, and by no means least, thank you to the Chefs! Every item that came out of the kitchen was perfect, from the first canapé to the last cocktail. A special thank you for helping rescue our cake, no one noticed anything was wrong and you went above and beyond to make sure it stayed that way. Again, I couldn't have asked for more and you and your team went beyond our expectations to make sure everything was perfect.
In all, I could not have recommended Gabbinbar more strongly. The team sets an incredibly high bar that exceeds your expectations, even when you're expecting excellence."
"I would just like to give you guys a massive thank you, everything was perfect. Thank you for all your assistance along the way and your service and food was excellent! Also a special thank you to The Wedding Planning Team for all your help and patience.
Also a special thank you to The Wedding Planning Team for all your help and patience. Definitely could not have done it without you.
You guys are amazing!"
"We are a Switzerland based couple who came home to Australia for our wedding at Gabbinbar Homestead in early December 2016. Planning from a distance was made easy with the Gabbinbar team. Timely and efficient phone meetings were held and documents made easy to access.
On the day, the venue was beautifully set out. The staff were extremely helpful and discreet and we were really able to relax and enjoy the day with family and friends. We had international guests so particularly wanted a venue that had an Australian atmosphere and aesthetic, mixed with elegance and ease - Gabbinbar was all of those things for us. Our guests loved spending time there (the cricket match was a hit!) and so did we.
Thanks again for helping the day run so well. We loved it! Highly recommend."
"To the incredible team at Gabbinbar,
We just wanted to express how thankful we are for everything that you have done in the lead-up to our wedding day last November 2016. We cannot fault a single thing both on the day and in the planning process. The service was impeccable, the food was relish, and the attention to detail was second to none! A massive thank you to the Wedding Planning team for answering all of our many, many emails. You make weddding planning a breeze
We will be forever grateful to the team at Gabbinbar for making our wedding day so memorable."
"Thank you for coming to our rescue & helping us plan our wedding in just 5 short weeks! We were very lucky to be able to have the opportunity to host our wedding at Gabbinbar Homestead & we can’t thank you enough for making this happen.
Your flexibility, generosity, & kindness was greatly appreciated. All of the staff were extremely professional & provided an outstanding service experience.
We had such an amazing day & night & our guests loved the venue, food & dedicated staff. Our wedding day was perfect!"
"We would like to sincerely thank you for making our wedding day everything we had ever dreamed of. As soon as we visited Gabbinabar Homestead we knew this was the perfect venue for our wedding. It suited both of our personalities. The attention to detail & small touches made it feel more personal. The food was delicious & the wine flowed freely. Everyone commented on how exceptional the Gabbinbar experience was, we had guests from London, Cambodia & Outback Australia.
I would like to make special mention how you went above & beyond the call of duty for my flower bouquet. You saved the day fixing my second bouquet in time for the ceremony.
We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day."
"Trent and I wish to say the biggest thank you for our wedding day. The service and food was exceptional and I couldn't fault anything or anyone. All of our family and friends are still talking about it being "the best wedding they have ever been to, and nothing could compare.
You all take such pride in your jobs and it truely shows. Nothing was ever too hard leading up to the wedding and on the day.
The Homestead and the grounds are flawless and it's what makes our photos and video very special."
"I would just like to say what an absolute joy it was working with you and the team last Friday for a wedding. It was such a joy for me, as a celebrant, to feel that there was a team approach to help the couple have their dream wedding day come into fruition.
Thank-you for your support on the day, I LOVED it! I look forward to more opportunities to officiate weddings at this stunning, stunning venue."
"Thank you for hosting our wedding at your beautiful location. We had a magical, memorable day and the food and service were excellent. Thanking you once again."
"We always enjoy driving out to Toowoomba to film weddings at Gabbinbar Homestead. Whether it is a beautiful sunny day or a rainy wet day we always achieve amazing results with Gabbinbar's stunning well kept gardens.
As far as photography locations go you are really spoilt for choice, everywhere you point your camera is a beautiful photo.
With plenty of cover around the Homestead, wet weather is not a problem and even can add to the beauty and rustic charm of the venue.
Another nice thing about filming at Gabbinbar is that you can tell the staff really enjoy working there which is not always the case with wedding venues. The staff are friendly and courteous and will go out of their way to make you feel special.
I highly recommend everyone consider Gabbinbar Homestead as a possible wedding venue for your special day."
"What a spectacular venue, we couldn't have dreamed of a more magical experience! Love the staff and the attention they gave us and our guests. We would encourage anyone that wants to get married at Gabbinbar. The food was delish!"
"Thank you to the amazing team at Gabbinbar Homestead for giving us the most magical wedding day.
Our friends and family have not stopped talking about how incredible it was, how beautiful the venue was and how professional the staff are.
Daniel and myself knew Gabbinbar Homestead was the place for our wedding, it was the first and only venue we looked at.
We cannot thank you all enough for all your hard work."
"A big, big, thank you to you all for your hosting of our wedding. Since the very first email you've made it all so easy, especially when organising from interstate.
The estate is just gorgeous and we can tell how much you care for the property. Even with such bizarre cold and wet weather in January, it was still magic and whilst we didn't plan on using The Pavilion, nobody would have guessed that it was our "plan b" and we didn't give it a second thought.
The food was delicious, we've had so many people tell us that it was by far the best food they've ever had at a wedding, many compliments to the chef! All of your wait staff were fabulous and again we received so many compliments that you are deserving of.
Special mention goes to the Wedding Planners. From working out the timing for the processional, arranging cups of tea, going out to buy shawls for us because we're all freezing, insisting that I wipe my hands on her cardigan as I'm about to walk down the aisle because the bouquet was still wet. All the time so calm, pleasant and incredibly patient. We left everything there and can't believe you had it so neatly packed up and ready to collect in the morning. Thank you, it couldn't have been any simpler for us"
"What an amazing place you all have there. The staff were so great to us and they had a level of professionalism and etiquette which is certainly rare these days.p>
I've played a lot of weddings in some amazing venues for everyday and also high profile people, national and international and found the Gabbinbar Homestead surely up with the best of them, a breath of fresh air."
"Dale and I just wanted to send you a quick email before our honeymoon to let you all know how grateful we are to you for helping create such a memorable night.
Yesterday was more than we could of ever hoped for. You enabled us to remain relaxed and calm the entire day and night ensuring anything we requested was taken care of.
I have to make special note of the farewell by Gabbinbar staff at the end of the night, it really just topped off the amazing experience.
We wish you all well in the future and once again, thank you for creating our dream wedding."
"I just wanted to say a BIGGGG THANK YOU!!
You would not believe the comments we have had on how magical our beautiful day was and it was all because of the hard work and effort put in by your lovely ladies and the team on the day.
Kellan and I could not recommend Gabbinbar enough as such a special venue for all future brides and grooms. It could not have been a more perfect choice!
The service, atmosphere and attentiveness of the staff on the day was second to none and was definitely the talk of the room, other than the Bride and Groom of course!
Beyond the most beautiful place to get married. Couldn't be more full of praise for the staff and service standards."
"On behalf of both our families, we would like to show how thankful and grateful we are for your hospitality and service during our wedding. We were amazed at how smoothly everything went and everyone has only forwarded their compliments about the venue, service and people at Gabbinbar. Some people even said that it was the best wedding they have ever attended.
We loved and enjoyed the day very much and I would recommend Gabbinbar as a wedding venue, anytime anyday. You all have made this experience such a a pleasant one and I think that everyone at Gabbinbar should be proud to be a part of an excellent team! You guys are amazing!
Although our dealings with Gabbinbar have sadly come to an end, you guys have played such an important role in our special day and we will never forget this lovely experience. Thank you so much!"
"Thank you to the staff at Gabbinbar Homestead for a wonderful day. The wedding was absolutely beautiful and we all had a great time and celebration. Family and friends were “blown away” with the venue, food and all the special touches that are Gabbinbar.
It really is a special place. Thank you for your wonderful work, attention to detail and magical ability to be there just when we needed someone."
"We can not say thank you enough for the support, encouragement, seamless service and professionalism that we experienced at our wedding. Your staff all went above and beyond to make us feel like we were the only wedding you were working on and the absolute attention to detail did not go un-noticed.
The amount of guests who have spoken only good things about your wait staff, the venue, the food, the atmosphere and the entire evening, is unreal. We have been blown away with the response from our guests and we can truly say that most of that is all thanks to you guys.
You helped us bring our dream wedding to fruition!
We have heard that some of your wait staff picked up on the fact that a few of our guests had dietary requirements that we did not know about, and it was no problem to bring them out different meals. This changed the experience for those guests and made them feel so loved and appreciated as a guest. Thank you to your staff for listening out for the little comments and acting on them straight away. These little details take your entire experience at Gabbinbar from being great to outstanding."
