This Turon Gates wedding in Capertree was such a beautiful and memorable wedding with one of the nicest couples you could ever meet, Jordy & Lachy
This was a DIY wedding to the extreme. Jordy & Lachy did absolutely everything themselves. Well… them and their small army of family and friends. Everything you see in the photos below was brought in by truck by this couple and I really can’t believe how much work they did. And it paid off because the wedding looked amazing!
This beautiful wedding took place in Turon Gates, which is located in Capetree, just over the Blue Mountains. It basically sits between Mudgee, Bathurst, Lithgow and Katoomba. And this place in breathtakingly beautiful.
The original landowners at Turon Gates were the Wiradjuri people prior to white settlement. From the 1950s Turon Gates was the site of a gold rush. With thousands of miners working in the Turon River searching for gold.
To get there, I drove over the Blue Mountains and down into the Capertree Valley which is stunning in itself. Then I took a long dirt road that led me into Turon Gates and through farmlands and up into the mountains. Turon Gates is a huge area, with over 6000 acres. And there are log cabins located along the mountain top that has some of the best views you can imagine.
The Turon Gates wedding venue was located over the mountains and down in another valley and was situated next to the Turon River. Where there were camping facilities, log cabins, the Pavillion and luxury glamping tents. What a location! This was an Aussie bush wedding at its best.
The wedding ceremony took place down on the river bed itself with the sound of the flowing water and check out the amazing wedding arbour.
After the wedding ceremony the couple hung out with their guests for a while and then we drove back up the mountain for some sunset photos.
The wedding reception was outside under festoon and fairy lights with a mobile wood fire pizza oven, caravan bar and lots of casual seating. The Pavilion Tent was used as a wet weather back up and had the food buffet and the dancefloor.
This Turon Gates wedding was so relaxed, informal and totally joyful. I can see this place becoming very popular with couples in the future because it has everything you need for an amazing country wedding. And the location is absolutely stunning!
