Gabbinbar Homestead Wedding : Scott + Rachel

Beautiful St Patrick’s Cathedral and Gabbinbar Homestead Wedding

Scott and Rachel were married in St Patrick’s Cathedral in Toowoomba with the reception following at Gabbinbar homestead in December.  We always  love a Gabbinbar homestead wedding, it is definitely one of our favourite Toowoomba venues. Sonia and I both love the drive to Toowoomba, the countryside is so beautiful and makes a great break from Brisbane.

The girls were all having a great time in the morning, we met them over at Gabbinbar before heading over to the Cathedral for the wedding. After the ceremony we headed over to town hall quickly for a couple of shots before making our way back to Gabbinbar homestead for the reception.  The reception room looked amazing during the day and is mind blowing when it’s all lit up by candles at night! It is just such a unique space for a lovely dinner.

This was our last wedding for the year and what a truly awesome finish it was!  Thank you Scott and Rachel for such a great finale to the year.

Sirromet Winery : Ben + Jess : Real Life Wedding

Ben and Jess were married under The Arbour amongst the vines at Sirromet Winery on Saturday 30th November, 2013. After a rainy morning, the clouds made way for sunshine just in time for the ceremony. The boys preparations took place in the city at the Hilton, while the girls were getting ready on the grounds on Sirromet at Merlot House. The couple hired golf buggies to arrive at the ceremony and to get around the grounds for photos. After a stunning afternoon of photos, Ben and Jess continued to celebrate with family and friends at Restaurant Lurleen’s at Sirromet Winery.

Ben and Jess first met back in January 2009 when they were introduced by mutual family friends after Ben’s family had moved to Toowoomba.

Ben kept the entire proposal a surprise including choosing the ring himself. After going out for coffee on a Sunday night, Ben and Jess went for a walk at Picnic Point in Toowoomba.  It was here, overlooking the Lockyer Valley, that Ben proposed and Jess said Yes!

Funniest Wedding Moment: Towards the end of the reception we played a game involving the shoes of the Bride and Groom and a series of questions. We sat back to back on chairs and each exchanged one shoe. We were asked questions such as – “Who is the better driver?, “Who wears the pants in the relationship? etc. Without knowing each others responses we answered either Bride or Groom by raising the corresponding shoe. It was entertaining for the guests, a lot of fun for everyone and very funny!

Special Wedding Day Moment: The few moments we spent alone walking through the grape vines during photos. It was our first chance to reflect on how all our hard work and organising had paid off. It had rained all morning and sun came out just in time for the ceremony it was the best feeling of relief and excitement.

Special thanks to Sirromet Winery, the location was what made our wedding day so special. All of the staff were so helpful and accommodating to all that we needed. All of our guests commented on how beautiful the winery was for a wedding location.

What was you experience like having Chris & Sonia from Sterling Studios photograph your wedding? Chris and Sonia were so relaxed and professional. We never felt rushed, everything just flowed beautifully and we now have the most incredible photos to remember our wedding day.

Advice for other brides-to-be: Just go with the flow, the day goes so quickly and no one notices the little details. The more relaxed you can be, the more you enjoy the day.
