Relaxed Elegance is the new wedding code, it actually never really disappeared under all that stuff, fashion has always gone back to basics with simple elegant.
Divine Maleny country, relaxed elegance is exactly what, Kate and Rhys created when they said ‘I Do’ and their sophisticated country wedding style certainly delivered opulence and plenty of glamour to their modern country wedding day.
By our talented Inhouse Florist Mondo Floral Designs & Our Inhouse Bespoke Stylist Lovebird Weddings
Relaxed elegance is so on trend for 2017 and Kate had that concept as a vision well ahead of time, to be honest what over all the decades has outdone elegance? from styling, clothes, to the whole wedding vibe and then translating into your photos,as always “Simple Elegant” or the new version of “Relaxed Elegance” is best for the final outcome.
Both have much the same concept but relaxed elegance is where you can feel totally at home , confident and relaxed with fabulous style, great food and wine but you can slip your shoes off under the table and really ease into your day should you desire. Here at Maleny Manor that is exactly what you do you, move in ,feel at home but with all the guidance and care plus a dedicated team to make it all happen.
So keep it simple, keep it elegant, keep it relaxed… concentrate on the important things, make sure you get all that is dear too you organised then don’t second guess or change direction. Go for it and have a wonderful day your way!
In the words of Mondo Floral Design our In-house Floral Stylist……
We were delighted to create the floral concept for Kate and Rhys and what a fabulous brief we had, it all started when Kate showed us a favourite bouquet design that Mondo Floral Designs created for a styled shoot, this bouquet represented her inspiration for colour, and so the coral, peach, tangerine, magenta and pink tones became the base palette for the styling of this gorgeous event. The delicious colour palette flowed through the entire floral concept, and we were delighted to also feature our old world gold chalice vases, these were the perfect vessel choice to fit beautifully with the opulent wedding style, and continued the sophisticated wedding concept through to reception.
Kate’s wedding bouquet was an unstructured design style that featured textural greenery and flowering fillers and plenty of beautiful blooms! We were super excited to be able to include ranunculus which were exceptionally early for their season, but our super hero flower suppliers delivered the goods and these stunning blooms were included throughout the concept. Along with David Austin roses, double tulips, cottage roses, dahlias and lisianthus, these delicious seasonal blooms were combined with olive branch foliage, textural fillers and flowering berries.
The stunning bridal party included Kate’s male friend as her bridesman, as well as four beautiful bridesmaids all wearing royal blue, so the vivid yet elegant colour palette worked perfectly with the stronger tones of blue.
Chair posies featured at ceremony in the beautiful pavilion and how gorgeous was the colour accent of the flowers against that beautiful bridal party!
The reception was transformed into a luscious dining soiree. Lovebird Weddings created longer style table spaces by introducing their long timber tables, these were elegantly clothed and ready for our floral designs. Our old world gold vase collection featured, and the decadent chalice vases were generously filled with beautiful blooms, smaller style gold vases were also placed in clusters throughout the table space. The beautiful floral concept continued, with the modern punchy colour palette popping perfectly throughout the styling. Gold charger plates and cutlery also featured on the tables, with pretty table decor by Lovebird Weddings placed throughout the space. Pops of floral featured on the bridal chairs, the seating frame and the delicious dessert buffet.
The old world gold in combination with the modern floral concept melded beautifully to create this sophisticated country wedding style.
