Stories from families and friends

Absolutely beautiful!

As a bride, leaving from this place was magical, and being able to use the main house for photos was sensational! I would recommend this for anyone wanting a relaxing getaway.  Thank you so much.


A dream come true for our day

Thanks to the incredible team at Staytime, Steve and I felt like royalty on our wedding day. Getting ready together in the charming cottage, taking photos under the purple jacarandas, and then being picked up in a vintage car made me feel like Cinderella. Their attention to detail blew us away – personalised touches, rose petals, complimentary drinks – it was sheer magic! I didn’t want the fairy tale to end – it really was the most romantic start to our happily ever after.

The perfect backdrop for the most wonderful pictures

I had the best experience getting my wedding photos taken at Dr Crookston’s historic home. The garden was stunning and beautifully maintained, and the house has endless possibilities for fantastic memories to be made. I recommend any bride to make the most of this beautiful backdrop.
