Gabbys at Berry

Gabbys at Berry is an idyllic setting for your wedding reception. With four quaintly historical churches within walking distance, Gabbys at Berry is located in the centre of the small and historic township of Berry.

Gabbys at Berry will provide an elegant atmosphere, a sense of welcome and superior service. There is a fully licensed bar as well as a dance floor in front of the stage. A sweeping timber staircase and balcony leads to a stunning mezzanine level. This area can also be used for pre dinner drinks and hors d'oeuvres. Leadlight windows on this level make it a desirable area for the actual ceremony to be held here if you wish. 

There is also have a private room for the bridal party with full ensuite facilities, for you to enjoy a short break from the limelight, freshen up and should you wish, have a shower and change before departing on your way. 

Your reception can be in the style of your choosing - a traditional wedding breakfast, cocktail party, buffet or brunch. For all of these styles, Gabbys offers an extensive choice of menus where you'll find a menu and drinks list to suit your budget.

The Lizette Dress

We just love the Lizette dress from Cheboom! This soft satin cocktail dress is perfect for a bridal party, and being black makes it very elegant. The one shoulder and bodice detailing is just divine!

Your Photography Pro

One of our favourite images from the very talented Your Photography Pro, is this stunning shot…

“A fun filled afternoon of photography with Gemma and Darren ended up with the magic shot of the day, taken as the last shot of the photo shoot. We laughed as Darren squeezed himself through the window and managed to grab Gemma’s hand. This was the perfect moment to release the shutter. The natural, candid expression makes this photo, but the Kombis draw most of the attention. Looking at this photo makes people smile and that’s why it’s one of my favourites.” – Frank Selmo, Your Photography Pro
