THE WEDDING OF FIONA & TIM AT GLEDSWOOD HOMESTEAD & WINERY IN THE NSW REGION OF SOUTH WEST SYDNEY

Fiona & Tim

Gledswood Homestead & Winery is a South West Sydney wedding venue, located at Gledswood Hills in the Macarthur District, an hour drive southwest of Sydney, near Camden NSW. 

Gledswood Homestead & Winery is a romantic and historic venue featuring a magnificent homestead (circa 1810) surrounded by elegant gardens and several different function rooms to cater for weddings and ceremonies of up to 450 guests. Plus a convict-built cellar door!

It offers a wide scope of stylised weddings and ceremonies from the informal to the delightfully elegant. Their team works closely with you to ensure your dream wedding and ceremony becomes a reality. They have several ceremony areas, including wet-weather backup options. 

I am fortunate to have been recognised for my excellence service, from previous couple’s feedback, and I am proud to say that I am a ‘Preferred Vendor’ for Gledswood.

So when it came to Fiona and Tim’s wedding day it was drizzling and the decision was made to relocate their ceremony inside to one of those charming backup options – The Shearing Shed. With a backdrop of twinkling fairy lights behind the arbour, it definitely gave a magical, romantic vibe that Fiona and Tim weren’t expecting. After the ceremony they both were excited to say that this space was intimate and special; which was exactly why they planned a micro wedding, inviting 45 of their closest family and friends.

Theirs is a fantastic love story of two people who are kind, empathetic and caring; who found their connection through a FaceBook group!

You see, during the recent lockdowns created by the worldwide pandemic, Fiona’s life was full of wonderful family, great friends and her amazing son. However, she also had been feeling a little lonely and isolated, and she felt ready to find companionship with someone who would fill the gap in her heart. 

Her friend suggested joining a FaceBook group specifically for single parents.

Now, Tim had been in this dating group for some time, and feeling a little frustrated with it, he posted his profile again, in one last attempt to find a partner. And bingo, Fiona sends him a message, complimenting him on his flamingo shirt and keen to have a chat with him.

Within four days, they arranged to meet in person for the first time, at a cafe in Camden.

Tim describes how he arrived early, like his usual behaviour, then like a crazy person greeted Fiona at her car with a basket of homemade banana muffins. Fiona made him feel at total ease from the moment they met. In fact, he wasn’t even interested in his meal, but rather fascinated by the conversation they shared.

And their first date went so well, that Fiona scored herself some hand-holding, a cheeky snog and a second date!

Their wedding day was full of heartfelt emotion, laughter and no boring bits! Check out more of their wedding day at one of my favourite Macarthur Wedding Venues.

Early the following morning, I received this fantastic text message:

“Good Morning Cass, thank you so much for being our amazing wedding celebrant & marrying Tim and I yesterday. We had the best day. The wedding was absolutely perfect for us. We received so many comments on how fantastic you were and we couldn’t agree more. From our first meeting with you, we knew that you were the perfect person to marry us. Everything about you, your personality, your style of working and marrying people… complimented us as a couple. Thank you so much for being a part of our day, we appreciate it so much. Have an amazing weekend.”

Thank you Fiona and Tim, it has been a pleasure getting to know you and working with you to create your perfect wedding day.

What they said: “Cass was the perfect celebrant for us. From our first meeting with Cass, we knew that she was the right fit for us. Everything about Cass, complimented us as a couple – her kind and bubbly personality, the way she marries couples (she is so flexible and adapts her style to fit with what her couples want), her communication style. Cass made us feel at ease throughout the whole process and was so accommodating of anything that we wanted – nothing was too much trouble. Cass went above and beyond to make our day perfect and so memorable. We are so glad that we had Cass marry us, she was wonderful. Our wedding day was amazing, made even more amazing by Cass, who truly made our day very special.

Fiona and Tim. 06.10.2023. Gledswood.”
