Danika Mason: Wedding Venue Faces Last-Minute Chaos as Channel Nine Star Cancels Ceremony a Mere Four Weeks Prior – Insights on Celebrity Guest List Revealed

EXCLUSIVE 

It had all the ingredients of a dream wedding – an idyllic vineyard, celebrity guests and even a celebrant plucked from the TV. 

But Channel Nine sports presenter Danika Mason left her carefully chosen venue scrambling after she called off her wedding to gym rat fiancé Todd Liubinskas just weeks before the big day. 

The Greystone Estate in the NSW Hunter Valley – where Mason and Liubinskas were meant to wed on October 27 – uploaded a frantic plea on Wednesday after the much-anticipated nuptials were suddenly cancelled.

A post on the venue’s official Instagram account read: ‘A rare opportunity has become available for a chance to have your wedding at Greystone Estate – with 50% off!’ 

A spokesperson for the venue confirmed to Daily Mail Australia that the vineyard – which is set 10 acres down an olive-tree lined driveway and ‘designed specifically to host lavish events’ – had an unexpected cancellation. Sources confirmed it was the couple’s chosen venue.

The last-minute wedding cancellation no doubt came as a surprise to many of the couple’s celebrity guests.

They were expected to include sports presenter colleagues James Bracey and Clint Stanaway, plus Liubinskas’ close mate and 440 Run Club co-founder Trent Knox.

The Sunday Footy host was set to marry Liubinskas, 40, but was forced to cancel five weeks out from the event for reasons yet to be made public by the former couple.

The wedding was set to be officiated over by Seven News reporter and marriage celebrant Grace Fitzgibbon, the daughter of retired Federal Labor MP Joel Fitzgibbon.

The couple had been engaged for two years after Liubinskas popped the question in July 2021. 

Mason remained tight-lipped when approached by Daily Mail Australia this week.

She has subsequently confirmed news of her split in a series of public appearances without her wedding ring.

Mason hosted the Sunday Footy Show at the weekend, covering the Broncos vs Warriors preliminary final. She stood on the sideline with her large diamond engagement ring noticeably absent from her left hand.

Another ex-girlfriend of Liubinskas – who was in a relationship with him for seven years before he started dating Mason – offered Mason a message of support.

‘I can only hope that Danika hasn’t been blindsided like I was or going through something similar,’ the ex, who declined to be named, told Daily Mail Australia.

‘My heart goes out to her if she was.’

According to an insider, Liubinskas has come to terms with Mason’s decision to split. He has been staying with his parents. 

According to a Hunter Valley wedding concierge website, there are two wedding packages on offer at Greystone Estate at a rate of ​​$20,300 or $15,200, not inclusive of food and beverages.  

Mason appeared downcast in her first sighting since news broke on Tuesday. She proceeded to pullout of a scheduled media event.
