Sarah really helped to bring the whole event together. The venue is amazing and Sarah takes great pride in the property on which she has grown up. The venue is perfectly set up for the ceremony, for the photos, and for the reception. Sarah thinks of everything - a champagne picnic basket for the newlyweds while having photos taken on the hill as the sun sets, photo opportunities with Bello the calf, and attention to the smallest details, as well as organising communication between various suppliers. We can't thank Sarah enough for the wonderful work, love, and care that she put into our wedding day, and how easy she made the preparations. She gives the right amount of input and listens to what couples want - and she makes it happen. Any wedding at this venue will be the perfect day.

The venue was magnificent, exactly what we were looking for. We wanted a casual relaxed & unique atmosphere, & the venue fitted what we needed perfectly. An added bonus was the beauty of the grounds & chapel, making our wedding photos absolutely stunning. To top it all off, Sarah’s professionalism & friendly nature made it an easy decision for us as to where we got married. We were so happy with how the whole event was handled in the lead-up, & on the day/ night of our celebrations. Thank you Sarah & the team!

Any anxiety for the perfect day unravelling was put at ease by sarah at pioneer country. Our day was beyond amazing with delicious food, beautiful views, perfect photo locations and a laid back atmosphere set in a country rustic setting. Highly recommended, we wish we could relive the day over and over.

Dear Koralee, Your wedding day was picture perfect and it shows because I don't know how many time I have re-used your amazing wedding photography by Atomic Butterfly. Your tribe supported you well and your homegrown country styling was the next level. Congratulations on being pregnant and I look forward to meeting the next generation of Leonards. Kindest regards Sarah

So many options on how to do your wedding, Sarah is such a beautiful person, she just does everything she can to help make sure its perfect for you ! Our day was perfect :)

Pioneer Country allowed us to have the most beautiful scenes at our wedding whilst sticking to our budget. We absolutely fell in love with the venue at first sight and just knew that it was going to be perfect! Sarah was very helpful and accommodating, it was an absolute pleasure to plan it all with her. PA & Speaker system worked fantastically too! Unfortunately it caused a bit of static when the videographer wired a seperate microphone on the groom and was a bit tricky for our guests to hear the celebrant, so future Brides please keep that in mind- best to just stick to the Chapel's system. All in all a fantastic day with the most picture perfect venue that we would highly recommend to any future Mr & Mrs planning in the area. Thank You Pioneer Country Weddings!! :)

Hi Stef, A beautiful bride on the outside and INSIDE. It was a pleasure to be part of your big day. I have learned from your PA feedback experience and I now do a much more thorough handover and sound test with celebrants and ministers if they plan to use our PA system. I always encourage a rehearsal the day before for this reason. Kindest regards Sarah

A huge thank you to Sarah Robinson for an amazing wedding day. It was organised in a very short time and Sarah helped us through every step and provided valuable guidance when required. Sarah and her staff ensured that the whole day ran smoothly and was stress free. The Chapel and grounds are gorgeous and the food was absolutely divine. Would recommend Pioneer Country to everyone for a wedding, or any special occasion.

Sarah, our in-house wedding planner was calm, organised and full of useful tips. We are glad she was in our corner. Thank you so much!

Sarah was excellent! We found Pioneer Country in a rush as our previous venue was closed down. She reassured me and let me know that there was so much we can do with the time we had. She listened to all our requests and budgetary restraints and really allowed us to be us. The day went off without a hitch and it was my favourite day.

Pioneer Country  

Dear Lara & Lucus< I often think of your day and how relaxed and loving all your guests were. If you would like to revisit Pioneer Country to celebrate a milestone with another photoshoot you are always most welcome (& free of charge). Kind regards Sarah

Although born and bred on the Gold Coast we love everything “country”. The fact that Pioneer Country was a working farm with wide open spaces, horse yards and a barn style restaurant played heavy in our decision to choose Pioneer Country.
