Nestled amongst rolling hills overlooking a picturesque river, Kingsford Homestead weddings offer an inspiring backdrop for ceremonies and receptions.
The homestead was built in 1856 and the stone used is thought to have bought out from Edinburgh as ship’s ballast. There’s a bunch of interesting information on the building on their website. The building and homestead was restored by its current owners in the past few years, after its seven year stint as the set for TV show McLeod’s Daughters.
This place is bloody amazing. I kept catching myself thinking I was in another country while shooting a wedding there recently, only to be reminded otherwise by the stunning Australian landscape beyond the gardens.
As a wedding photographer, it was very easy to find stunning backdrops for photographs with the bride and groom and the bridal party. For ceremonies, the choice is yours, to have the Homestead as a backdrop or to turn around 180 degrees and have the rolling hills and fields instead. Sometimes it’s worth keeping this in mind depending on what the sun is doing and the time of year. You can possibly avoid the need for you or your guests to have to face the sun during your ceremony.
Kingsford Homestead really is a magical venue, offering a really unique, premium, boutique setting for weddings. I highly recommend taking a look.
