I first met Georgie at boarding school in Tamworth. Both having the best name a girl could have and only being a year apart we bonded.
It was years later when on a random trip to the Brunette Downs campdraft that we caught up again. I was lining up at the bar (standard) when I spotted her behind the bar. I regularly confuse people so not wanting to embarrass myself I asked the guy behind the bar with her if that was Georgie Robinson. His face lit up, no joke the smile was huge, and he replied "sure is... she's my girlfriend!"
Flash forward 3 years and Georgie and Cody marry on her family's property in Bingara, NSW.
Here are all the glorious details. Enjoy!

Words of wisdom; paying for professionals is hard on the hip pocket but so worth it during the day, you can relax and enjoy it knowing the people helping you are experts!
Also can’t recommend enough running your ideas past someone like a bridesmaid with excellent style taste to check you’re in track if you don’t have a stylist to help you.

The planning all started when we got engaged on 4th Feb 2017, quick to decide we would love photos in a wheat crop, so what a good time to have it early October when Harvest was about to begin. We had always dreamed about our country wedding on a property in a big hay shed, then to discover the lovely Mt Abundance Homestead in Roma QLD, we were sold!
The morning of our wedding it was steady rain, we headed off to Afros Studio in Roma to get our Hair and Make up done. The girls were great there! I had the most relaxing morning whilst the rain was still falling. The boys were continuing with last minute set up of items then headed back to start getting ready at Explorers Inn.
Once hair and make up was finished, us girls headed back to Overlander Motel to get into our dresses and take some snaps. Our photographer Rowena (Rowena Dione Photography - Gatton QLD) was amazing and has taken so many lovely photos. We stepped outside our motel room to discover the sun was shining and the clouds were disappearing. It was incredible to even think it had been raining for the last 4 days!
Our ceremony was held at the Mt Abundance Homestead, 5km west of Roma Qld. The old homestead has some history to it as it was built in 1800's. The homestead was open through the wait for the beginning of our ceremony. We got married under the beautiful big bottle tree that is over 150 years old. It was transplanted by hand in approx. 1875 as a reasonable sized tree so could be older.
We then had our reception at the Hodgson Hall, which was a perfect country hall. Roma Wedding & Event Hire did a great job in supplying and setting up all the tables, chairs and decorations. Our catering was done by SEA Catering in Mitchell who done a wonderful job and our cake was made by Lee's Spellbinding Cakes who are also based in Roma.
The night was so magical with a beautiful full moon lighting up the sky. We had the most wonderful day anyone could ask for. The weather was on our side and my piece of advice I can give to any bride is to plan the day you and your partner want to have and take every minute of your wedding day in as it goes so fast!
Thanks for sharing your magical day Danica!

Our wedding day was on the 4th of March this year and it was on my family property just outside of Miles in South West QLD. My husband and I live on the property and our house is 50m from the shed where the ceremony and reception was held.
It took us nearly a year to prepare including starting a lawn from scratch! Most of my vendors were local including our amazing cake from the bakery, dress maker for the brides maids and groomsmen, catering, celebrant etc etc.
My brothers played guitar for me to walk down the aisle and my husband was very handy and made all of our bar, and hanging lights etc.

Hannah and James, aka. Han and Guesty, met where all young people meet- at college. The pair were both in their first year at UNE and living on campus at the infamous Albies college when they were introduced to each other. Fast forward a couple of years and they became engaged. Han nearly choked on her breakfast as Guesty said “I think we should get married”.
Earlier this year these two lovebirds tied the knot. Han has so generously shared all the details with us.
Venue: Ok so we had the ceremony and reception at the same place, called the Vinegrove in mudgee. It's an amazing package deal, you can rent their private house to stay in, get ready the morning of etc.
The couple who own it are basically your wedding coordinators, they help you plan everything and run around on the day doing all those odd jobs like lighting candles. They don't provide food or drinks, but give you an extensive, very well researched list of local suppliers for everything you could possible imagine! I would 100% recommend them, they are incredible
Beautiful big marquee set up in the middle of grapevines, amazing sound system built into the roof of the marquee, under the silk lining
And she will decorate it absolutely however you want it, she has soooooo many decorations!
Hair and Make Up: Hair was 'Hair by Candice', her name is Candice Thompson, and makeup was Katie's professional makeup artistry, her name is Katie Rheinberger. Airbrush foundation = miracle!
Flowers: An amazing little old lady who lives in mudgee, she used to be a florist and now just does weddings at the Vinegrove for Sarah (lady who owns it). Her name is Geraldine, but Sarah calls her the 'secret squirrel' haha. She did our bouquets and sarah did all the table and marquee styling with shitloads of gum branches/leaves we hunted and gathered!
Brides dress: ASOS They have a whole bridal line now, nothing over $500 it's amazing
Veil: My veil was the real star of my outfit, it was from Etsy.
Bridesmaid dresses: Bojena King- the goddess of bridesmaid dresses haha! They got a lot of compliments.
Groom and his men: Suits from Peter Jackson, good package deal, and bow ties and socks from Otaa
Cake: Sweet As Cake Design
Food: We used Relish catering from Narrabri, amazing value, they were so much cheaper than the local companies even with the travel fee to Mudgee! People raved about the food.
Photography: Little Photo Co. Her name is Jenna Kensey, local Mudgee girl. Again, amazing value
Music: DJ Daddy Dollar$, aka Cameron Amos. He is a town planner in mudgee but also profesh DJ. He was brilliant.
Celebrant: Annie Scott from Marry Me Annie. Annie was so amazing, get around her!
Han and Guesty used a number of Hidden Gem suppliers. Head to Hidden Gems to see what's on offer.
Congratulations on your marriage Mr and Mrs Guest! We can't wait for whatever the future will bring.

This story comes from Tess in NSW.
I was a rural bride on September 5th 2015.
My now husband Peter and I had been together since 2008 with two beautiful boys when he finally proposed on 24th Dec 2014.
We decided on a rural/rustic style wedding as neither of us are traditional. Our bridal party consisted of 3 of my closet friends and sister, and our groomsmen were our two boys, my brother and Peter's father as his best man.
I fell in love with our ceremony and reception location "Daruka Homestead" located just out of Tamworth, NSW.
We did a lot of the wedding ourselves between myself, family and friends.
I got my wedding dress from Spurling, Tamworth. Our suits weren't exactly suits so they were just purchased are Target.
Thank you Tess for sharing your real rural wedding with The Rural Bride community. xx
What advice would you give to any future brides?
God, I'm not one to give advice. I was the slackest bride ever! Haha. But, just please don't leave things to the last minute! And, if you REALLY want something just lash out and get it. You don't want any regrets.
