Snowgums is proud to release images of its beautiful wedding and event equipment for marquee event usage.
Snowgums owners, Mark & Lisa Smith recently travelled overseas and purchased handpicked the collection.
Owner Lisa said, “we wanted something elegant, charming but also uniquely Snowgums, something that would fit into our own dining setting. It had to put people at ease. We think we’ve done that, the look is just stunning.”
Lisa has a highly attentive eye for detail, working in visual merchandising for a leading consumer brand. Lisa is also responsible for the styling of Snowgums Retreat. Finally Lisa is soft launching of a range of homewares and otherwise called Snowgums Collection, coming soon.
Snowgums is adding detailed photos of its full equipment range, available to guests at a Snowgums Event, shortly.
Details about Snowgums Collection and where its select product range can be purchased will follow.

Dolly’s many fans have been beside themselves over recent days following her recent health scare.
Snowgums is pleased to confirm that Dolly is now back to about 90% health and warming Randy’s grass patch at nights as well as being at or near the front of the bread and salad and food waste queue when goodies are being handed out (and fought over).
Dolly wishes to thank all those that expressed concern for her health in those scary moments. They know who they are.
The last of the rustic wedding hire equipment is delivered tomorrow (Monday 14th January 2019).
The only piece still to arrive at the shipping point, last to arrive, is the Marquee.
Unsurprisingly the marquee, measuring 10m x 25m is biggest item.
It is also the heaviest taking up a wopping 7m3 and weighing several tonnes in total.
Apparently the theory is that the biggest is loaded last. Straight off the truck and into the container.
This minimises handling given its weight and bulk.
Once loaded into the container, the container and its products are fumigated and sent.
So it seems we are now all but in readiness for the goods to sail from Shenzhen to Sydney?
The container’s arrival at Snowgums is due roughly the week of 4th February 2019.
The first wedding is booked for Snowgums on the 23rd February 2019 for the gorgeous bride Jess (and Chris).
Snowgums has bought roughly 200m of festoon lighting plus a shipload of spare bulbs.
It has also bought LED fluorescent lighting (as a budget alternative) plus LED strip lighting – similar by cooler than fairy style lights. These will be used to decorate the marquee’s exterior. A range of other decorative items are also available for hire.
Visitors to our website may also have noticed some changes.
We are setting up some tools to enable event organisers to request a quote more easily.
The tools are still a work in progress and will go fully live by early February.
By popular request from Lisa our amazing tree swing is now available for endless hours of #free children’s entertainment.
Made from robust hardwood timbers, even Mark might get to have a turn?
Snowgums Group owners, Mark & Lisa Smith have just returned from a buyer trip to Guangzhou, China to launch amongst other things Snowgums Ice. Shipping containers of equipment are on their way to Mt Canobolas.
The trips purpose was to procure event assets ready for the launch of Snowgums Events. We’ll be hosting rustic marquee weddings under the banner of Snowgums Events on the lush volcanic slopes of Mt. Canobolas. Further blogs listing items purchased will be published in over coming weeks.
Mark in particular is excited about what is hidden away in these boxes. To his knowledge its the only (and probably the largest capacity) cubed ice machine operating on the slope of Mt. Canobolas.
The machine’s specs enable it to produce about half a tonne (500kg) of cubed Snowgums Ice per day.
That’s around 100 x 5kg bags per day, enough to chill a serious amount of beer, wine, sparkling or otherwise.
Snowgums’ is blessed with amazing water resources.
We drilled a bore in June 2017 and hit the jackpot. Our drillers divined (sometimes called water dowsing) 2 x 20m (each) permanently flowing creeks intersected under our land.
“It was quite amazing. One of our neighbours up the hill has now drilled in 4 spots, at huge expense, and found 4 separate piles of dust, so we count our blessings”, Mark said.
Snowgums spring water is pumped from deep underground and consumed by thirsty guest and soon shall be frozen into cubed ice for consumption.
“There’ll be a serious amount of drinks chilled by Snowgum Ice’ machine” Mark said. “Probably a fair few hangovers as a result?” he continued.
Mark, a final year law student at the University of Sydney and resident of Beecroft, is hoping to more permanently be based at Snowgums from February 2019. This will assist Snowgums Events to better coordinate and host some of the events our guests are planning.
“It must be a New Year’s thing, our website has been hit hard by couples planning to wed this year and next for about a month straight. It’s been quite amazing,” Mark said.
Mark hopes spending more time at Nashdale will give him the chance to meet more surround local business owners. He’d like to supply ice to them for their events and private usages and look for ways to support each others businesses. These could be local wineries, Nashdale Hall, Nashdale School or private persons wanting spring ice available close at hand. Snowgums plans to buy plenty of local wines and are gearing up to obtain a liquor licence in order to meet event demand.
According to Wiradjuri legend, Mt. Canobolas is a place renowned for healing. It has many native plant species, including some species unique to the mountain.
Mark believes, as do the Wiradjuri people, that the soils of the mountain are blessed. This is evidenced from the fertile and productive agriculture grown nearby. Mark hopes Snowgums Ice, made from Canobolas underground spring waters, will also have similar rich, fertile and beneficial properties.
Well, its official, we have taken our first wedding booking and looking forward to hosting an amazing event for Chris and Jess, residents of Orange, come 23 February 2019, so we hope to become the place in Orange for rustic marquee weddings.
We can’t wait. And neither can Chris and Jess.
There is an amazing amount of work to be done between then and now, so we are looking forward to working closely with our team and key suppliers to get the place into amazing shape ahead of the big day.
Preparations are going well and in the coming couple of weeks Snowgums will purchase or action:
It’s an exciting time and there’s not a moment to spare but we are all looking forward.
We are undoubtedly going to need to employ additional team-members to assist with the hosting of this event – in the setup and pull down, so if you know anyone in the Orange area that may have experience in hospitality, marquee construction and pull-down, gardening and more – then please have them contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org to express interest in joining our team.
