Travis and Hannah first met at a friend’s house party in their mid teens. Fast forward ten years and the Toowoomba-based couple said their forevers at Gabbinbar Homestead with their two kids by their side! Aspiring for a laid back yet luxe vibe, Travis and Hannah went for a relaxed garden party wedding, captured by Lucas & Co Photography.

When Travis and Hannah first fell in love with Gabbinbar Homestead’s charm at a previous wedding, there was no doubt The Woods would host their heartfelt ceremony, led by charismatic celebrant, Sam. Festoon lights hung overhead as Blue Willow Wedding’s green and white arbour flourished amidst Gabbinbar’s rustic woods.

The Toowoomba weather was on-point, and while Jacques Van Lill took care of the tunes, the couple’s guests enjoyed a cool drink and canapés on outdoor lounges under Gabbinbar’s pavilion. When the night moved into the reception, Neon Republic’s ‘Till Death Do Us Party’ sign illuminated the dance floor and Travis and Hannah, and their guests, did just that! As for a piece of advice, Travis and Hannah insist live music is a must, after Jacques Van Lill pumped everyone up flying solo!

Hannah adds that having their kids present was incredibly special. “Having our two children Levi and Lettie there involved was just so special for us and them. They watch our wedding video all the time and always talk about Mummy and Daddy’s wedding.” So sweet!

We love these watercolour illustrated invitations, and Hannah gushed over Lindqvist Ink for their paper goods. “Oh my goodness, I cannot praise Danielle from Lindqvist enough! Nothing I envisaged was too hard for her!”

“My talented Mother made my dress!” Hannah shares. “We used off-cuts of lace from my cousin’s wedding dress for the top and soft white linen for the skirt. Something I can treasure forever.” With bold, tropical hints, Hannah’s green and white bouquet by Blue Willow Weddings completed her modern-classic bridal look.

You can’t go wrong with an all-Zimmermann bride tribe! Keeping the laid back vibe alive, Hannah’s bridesmaids went for a mix of dresses and a jumpsuit in the same lush floral print from the iconic Aussie label.

Lucas & Co. sure know how to snap an epic wedding, and keep their couple calm while they’re at it! “Jason from Lucas &Co was such a dream. He was so calm (which made us relax). He got all the photos we wanted without being noticed or in anyone’s way.”
