In mid-2018, we invited any drought-affected farms to list their properties for free on WedShed for a year. We figured it was the least we could do to provide some hope and an alternative income stream to some families that have been struggling with the relentless dry over the seasons.

Off the back of that, Big Springs Homestead reached out to us. And boy, were we happy to hear from them.

Located 25 minutes from Wagga Wagga, the property is a family-owned, multigenerational farm that’s decided to throw its hat into the wedding ring. Boasting sprawling green pastures, a picturesque lakeside ceremony spot and luxury accommodation for couples, we reckon this property is set to become one of the most popular country NSW wedding venues.

The biggest drawcard however, is the old horse stables which now operate as a unique reception space for up to 180 seated guests. To showcase its potential, we brought together a brilliant team of local vendors including Georgie James PhotographyGather Vintage Hire, Thistle and Fern and James and Co Wines to wave their magic wands – transforming the venue into one couple’s wedding day dream.

With high-ceilings, exposed timber beams and rustic brick walls it was brought to life with apricot and pink-hued floral arrangements by Thistle and Fern, gold and blush coloured place settings by Event Merchant Co and handpicked props by Gather Vintage Hire and When Wonder Met Grace. It was a big team effort that truly paid off. We’re scoring this one a 10/10.
