Gorgeous Rainy Day Bower Estate Wedding

While many couples fear rain on their wedding day, it’s actually considered good luck in many cultures. And Jordan and Deshaun’s rainy day Bower Estate wedding is proof that not only is this true, but rain also makes for some seriously beautiful wedding photos! The couple tied the knot in an intimate outdoor ceremony surrounded by Queensland’s lush national parks before taking cover in a fairy-lit tent that can only be described as magical.

While Australia’s natural beauty during a rainstorm is hard to beat, the wedding fashion was the true star of the show. Jordan looked truly stunning in a blush custom Begitta gown complete with polka-dots and an oh-so-sexy slit, while Deshaun matched nature beautifully in his stone-colored suit. Not to mention the button-down ivory satin Shonna Joy bridesmaid dresses that tied both the bride and groom’s looks together perfectly.

So if earthy and effortless is what you’re looking for, keep scrolling through to see the beautiful photos captured by A’Daw Photography. And who knows, you may just change your mind about rainy day weddings. 

The Couple:

Jordan and Deshaun

The Wedding:

The Bower Estate, Queensland, Australia

Effortless Wedding Day Fashion

I always knew that our bridal party style would be made up of natural colors. I love unique pieces so getting a custom couture dress made by Begitta was the perfect choice. My bridesmaids wore cream color Shona Joydresses, and the boys had tailored stone color suits. I would say our overall style was natural and effortless. We had fresh, natural makeup looks by Alex Ouston and simple hairstyles by The Hair Therapist. 

A Memorable Rainy Walk Down The Aisle

We loved the entire day! Even the moments of sprinkling rain. Having all of our closest friends and family together was a pretty overwhelming feeling. There was so much love and happiness amongst everyone, and that’s the most special memory for us. We spent the day with everyone we love so much and who loves us. My uncle walking me down the aisle was such a special moment I’ll never forget.

Natural Vibes At The Bower Estate Wedding

Our wedding style was natural, effortless, and unrefined. It was made up of earthy, neutral color tones and was set amongst endless lush greenery and fairy lights. We had a family-style banquet and a beautiful caravan barfor everyone to enjoy. Our wedding had the most magical feel. It was filled with timeless selections that I know we’ll be obsessed with forever!

Elegantly Earth-Toned Gabbinbar Wedding

Neutral doesn’t mean boring. In fact, selecting a neutral color palette allows for other elements to shine through on your wedding day—much like this elegant Australian celebration. Jess and Dan dreamed of creating a whimsical, earth-toned wedding day that radiated love and prioritized little moments. With the help of Junebug member Gabbinbar Homestead that’s exactly what they got. 

Gabbinbar Homestead is a historic, Australian venue that radiates elegance. Complete with enchanted gardens, fountains, and draped fairy lights, it’s the perfect spot for unique weddings of any size and theme. To preserve the venue’s beautiful existing features, Daisy and Co Flowers used earth-toned florals to frame the ceremony backdrop and better personalize the space.  

Every jaw-dropping element—from floral arrangements to the venue—shines through in these images captured by wedding photographer Bulb Creative. Whether you’re in search of neutral wedding inspiration or unique ways to infuse your day with personalized touches, this elegant nuptial is sure to kickstart your creative wedding planning process

More From The Venue On This Gabbinbar Wedding 

We host over two hundred stunning weddings every year at our exclusive heritage-listed homestead estate. With all the beautiful couples we’ve welcomed through our doors, we’re continually being captivated by the unique stories each brings. Dan and Jess were no exception. It was the perfect fusion of understated elegance and pure wow. Heartfelt speeches, warm candlelight, and effortlessly styled florals were the highlights of the reception which was followed by dancing with guests beneath the chandeliers in the ballroom.

Vendors Are A Top Priority

As a wedding photographer and videographer myself, my top priority was selecting our dream photographer and videographer. Even before I got engaged, I had my heart set on Bulb Creative and Sam Fregonese to capture our day! Not only are they extremely talented, but they are also the sweetest humans who made our day so fun. I made sure they were both available before booking our date and venue. We were so blessed to have them as part of our day.

The Ceremony Being The Most Most Memorable 

The ceremony was the most memorable part of the day for us. Getting to worship God together and sharing our personal vows to one another was a dream. All whilst being surrounded by the people we love most in the world—the sweetest and most treasured moment. For us, it felt like a glimpse into heaven.


Wedding Planning Is Easy When You Marry Your Best Friend 

My main piece of wedding planning advice would be to focus on what really matters: marrying your best friend. It’s definitely fun to pick out and plan all the details, but when you think back to your wedding day, it’s the little moments that you’ll remember. The look on your dad’s face when he sees you in your wedding dress, the happy tears you get as you read a sweet note from your partner, the excitement as you begin to walk down the aisle. It’s truly these sweet moments that’ll mean the most. Try not to stress too much about the other things. 

The Venue Was Love At First Sight

Over the years that I’ve been in the wedding industry, I’ve visited many beautiful venues. But I completely fell in love with  Gabbinbar Homestead the very first time I visited around four years ago. From that moment, I dreamed of getting married there one day! There’s so much natural beauty and the Homestead is breathtaking, especially the reception conservatory with the glass ceiling. Above all else, the staff are the best in the business. They’re so friendly, accommodating, and diligent. We couldn’t be more grateful for everything that they did for us in making our wedding day the best day of our lives.

Make Your Ceremony Your Own 

It was very important to Dan and me that our ceremony was Christ-centred and reflected our faith. We opened the ceremony with worship which was such a joyful and powerful moment. We were so blessed to have both our pastors conduct our ceremony. I also loved that Dan and I were able to share communion together right after the ceremony.
