Their love story began at the tender age of 16 and 17, with every moment full of laughter and love since. They have built their lives around caring for others: Alex is a paramedic and Cal is a firefighter, so when it came to their wedding day, everyone wanted to give back.
They wanted their wedding to be a fun and relaxed day – filled with family, friends & food. So, their ceremony was conducted by a family friend, in front of the Sage’s Cottage - and it was absolutely brimming with long-awaited emotion.
Styled by Woops a Daisy, this was a Pinterest-worthy boho wedding, with Alex wearing a stunning lace dress thanks to Spell Bride – complete with floral headpiece and macramé floral wrap. Lawn games were scattered across the lawn at the barn, and the iconic Woops a Daisy red velvet lounge setting took centre stage for guests to relax.
The festivities began with a massive grazing table, filled with antipasto, cheese, fruit, cured meats, bread and dips, followed by their cocktail-style reception. The highlight was the interactive food station, where the Going Gourmet chef came out to cook the barbeque in front of the guests. Food aromas filled the air, complete with fire tricks and all.
Their reception was a big party, with Angus Legg entertaining the guests with his amazing voice. They ended their wedding with a bang, Alex donning a “wifey” leather jacket for their sparkler send off.

Becca and Evan were an extremely fun couple! Their personalities were all throughout their wedding, starting off with the ceremony. Their celebrant, Carla Bergen, asked that all guests to take a quick photo before putting their phones away for an unplugged ceremony “there’s only one phone left” Carla said with a glint in her eye looking at Becca. Becca proceeded to pull out her phone from a pocket in her wedding dress, (which she had been boasting about to Carla in the lead up to the wedding) with hesitation, “oh alright, one quick selfie” replied Carla. So in fun nature, Becca, Evan and their bridal party, just like the famous Ellen DeGeneres Oscar Selfie, and got a pre ceremony photo – pictured below.

Tegen and Drew got married in November 2016 and chose to hold their ceremony within one of the fields on the property. With the help of Woops a Daisy and the Baxter Barn venue staff, they transformed the field into a rustic boho wonderland. A wooden archway framed the couple, as they got married.
Following the ceremony, their guests mingled around and had a celebratory drink, while the couple and their bridal party roamed the property in search of perfect photos, and thanks to Rebecca from The Urban Sparrow Photography, they got some stunning ones – even our goat Archie played the perfect part.
Once the photos were all done, the MC announced the couple for the first time as Husband and Wife and the party officially began. Drinks flowed, food was consumed and party shoes were put on. Tegen and Drew had a magical evening at the barn, celebrating their love, with everyone they loved the most.

It’s a rare occasion that we’re left speechless at Baxter Barn, but the captivating wedding between Louise and Belinda did just that! With Louise from Scotland and Belinda from Australia, they began their journey by flying over to Scotland to do their legal ceremony in front of Louise’s family, before flying back and having a big wedding with their friends and family here in Australia.

Cathy and Warren had an epic 170 guests at their wedding on 11th March 2017. The couple began the day at the barn with a first look and no dry eyes were in sight when Warren saw Cathy for the first time. Then, with their bridal party in tow, they roamed the property for photos. Cathy and Warren wanted to enjoy every minute of their wedding with their family and friends, so decided to do the photos before the ceremony.

The wedding of Teegan and Mahatia was just beautiful. The same sex couple held their wedding at Baxter Barn on 2nd December 2016 and showed that if you’re in love, that’s all that matters.
Their wedding was the perfect balance of rustic and boho, turning the grounds into a flower wonderland (even more so then what it already is!) and pairing it perfectly with dresses from Grace loves Lace. They held their love filled ceremony in our gardens with an Aboriginal smoking ceremony to cleanse, ward off any bad spirits, acknowledge ancestors and pay respect to the land and sea of country. The girls bought a tear to everyone’s eye as they declared their love for each other.
Chloe & Lucus got married outside our Sages Cottage, then enjoyed our full cocktail experience food package. The lovely couple and their guests then danced under the stars (and our festoon lighting) on Baxter Barn's outdoor dance floor. The guests even got treated with treats from their very own icecream stand.
What a lovely gift from Daniel and Shannaya Films!
