Kristie had always loved going to Pemberton as a child and really wanted to get married there, so together they started searching for wedding venues in the area. They came across Stonebarn online and instantly fell in love with it.
As soon as they saw the photos of Stonebarn online they knew it was the wedding venue for them. Following a site visit they booked Stonebarn from 8th – 11th November 2019.
Chris: “It was so beautiful, set in the country and so peaceful. Being able to have the entire property to ourselves was fantastic.”
Kristie and Chris booked our three night package so they were able to arrive the day before the wedding and stay an extra night after the wedding. Kristie was able to have her hair done by Zoe Mitchell and makeup by Stephanie Wikander of Hidden Gem Hair and Makeup and get ready in her Fara Couture wedding dress, all in the comfort of her luxury ensuite room at Stonebarn.
They held their wedding ceremony, conducted by celebrant Renata Suckling at the Lower Clearing, overlooking the truffiere and the Warren valley. They loved the fact that they could use our onsite arbour, church pews and benches, all free of charge.
Their wedding reception was held on the verandah, they used Stonebarn’s trestle table and chairs and other hire items from Fontys Party Hire, overlooking the dam and truffiere.
“It was so special to have our guests travel from all across Australia to come and share our day and celebrate with us.” Their standout moments were the food by Raj and family at Cilantro Cafe, it was amazing. Also, Melissa, from Melissa Mills Photography, made them both feel really comfortable during their photos:
Chris describes the clearing for their ceremony as ‘picture perfect’ and goes on to explain that “we just felt really good being up there in front of our loved ones.”
What really made the wedding so amazing for both Chris and Kristie was being able to marry their best friend and share it with a small group of people that they are close to and love.
Thank you so much Chris and Kristie for choosing Stonebarn for your wedding and sharing your experience with us. We wish you all the best as you embark on this wonderful union together.
