To Get You Started...


There are so many fabulous celebrants. When looking for a celebrant, most couples start their research by looking up several celebrants online until they find a celebrant that matches their style, personality and individual needs for their special day. If you don't know where to start, here some links to some celebrants that have married couples at Branell Homestead in the past: KATHY BRADY MARRIAGE CELEBRANT from the Lockyer Valley and JENN STEPHENS from Toowoomba. You don't need to limit your search to celebrants who live in the Lockyer Valley, Ipswich or Toowoomba. You will find that celebrants who live further away in locations such as Brisbane will usually be happy to travel out to Branell Homestead to marry you.


If you don't want to make your own wedding invitations, you might like to have them professionally designed for you. Here are the details of a professional wedding invitation design specialist: KRISTY ELLIOTT.

Others have set up all of their tables and chairs on the lawn in front of the Jetty to have their reception under the stars.

You are welcome to use any type of furniture you like for your reception, however, if you would like to hire some of our table and chairs, just click here to download our prices.


Please note: We only take accommodation bookings online via the BOOK ACCOMMODATION button six months in advance. If you click the BOOK ACCOMMODATION button and try to book a date that is more than six months away it will display as sold, even though it may be available. Some couples check our BOOK ACCOMMODATION button attempting to see if we have availability for their future wedding date which is more than six months away. The accommodation booking system says that their date is ‘SOLD' when in fact it could be available. If you would like to check our accommodation and wedding venue availability and your proposed wedding is more than six months away, just send a message to Branell Homestead enquiring about the availability of your date and a staff member will contact you.
