A few months ago, I travelled up to Toowoomba to be a part of a romantic editorial – a Gabbinbar Homestead Elopement. Growing up in Toowoomba but never having seen it through my lens, I was pretty darn excited. Gabbinbar is such a beautiful wedding venue – and we didn’t even use all of the gorgeous areas available to couples that do get married there. With the help of an amazing team of vendors, we put together an elegant, stylish inspiration shoot. The shoot was based around the idea that a venue can be just as beautiful as an elopement, as it can with a more traditional wedding. Gabbinbar Homestead is proof of that and made the perfect backdrop for Brad + Ebony (and their two witnesses!)
Here’s a glimpse into the photos we took that afternoon:
My friend Josh Withers officiated the Ceremony, that was set under some of the tallest trees I have ever seen. I just loved the ribbon backdrop and forest vibe!
Afterwards I took this gorgeous couple to the Old School House within Gabbinbar Homestead for some casual, just married portraits….
Meanwhile the finishing touches were being put on the incredible Conservatory. I’ve seen this room cater for over 100 guests, but I must admit, it looks just as good with an intimate table for 6. It’s such a stunning room regardless!
Picture perfect for Brad + Ebony.
