Maleny Magic Mist Wedding

Maleny Magic Mist! is sweeps in and caresses all in it’s path like walking on a dream….

As we were taking our couple photos in the vineyard, we looked back at our guests in the pavilion enjoying the ‘garden canapé party’. All we could hear was laughter. This was the moment we knew we created our dream wedding with the MM team.

Aside from the stunning location and reputation of Maleny Manor, it was the staff that won us over. We walked away knowing that they would go above and beyond to make our day fun and memorable – and that is exactly what we got!

Everything was easy – Eve and Amy had everything under control which allowed us to relax and enjoy every moment of our day. The energy we gained from the staffs attitude and the venue created a positive flow on effect to the bridal party and the guests. The bride kicked off the ceremony in fits of laughter and excitement as she walked down the aisle. Throughout the ceremony, garden party and reception all of our guests commented on how much fun they had and could not talk more highly of the MM team and venue.

 

The small touches also made the difference (like the warm foot spa after our damp photoshoot and my mother and aunt being escorted down the aisle by Fletcher!). Maleny Manor seamlessly catered for the ‘romantic misty’ weather we experienced on the day and we had the comfort of knowing that, despite the rain, there was always an excellent plan in place.

 

The suppliers recommended by Maleny Manor suited our personality and matched the fun atmosphere we wanted to create.

Love in the Maleny Magic Mist

 

As everything was so thoroughly organised by MM, Kylie and her mum got to spend time creating the theme and design of the wedding decor. Designing and hand making invitations, name cards, menus, seating plan boards and welcome signs with my Mum is a memory I will cherish forever. Mum is extremely talented and also made our 3 tiered white chocolate ganache cake!

Music was an important aspect of complimenting the atmosphere of our wedding. Our ceremony consisted of acoustic guitar versions of songs that were sentimental to us, whilst the garden party playlist was a compilation of our favourite ‘chill out’ music. We wanted the reception to kick off with an upbeat party atmosphere and ensure it was something the crowd would all know and respond to – so our band, the White Tree, played ‘Gimme some lovin’. Everyone was standing, clapping and singing as we danced our way to the bridal table.

 

Our had to have item….A live band!!!!

 

 

The Dream Team… for Kylie & John is listed below, we thank you form the bottom of our hearts for being so gorgeous and it was an absolute honour and privilege to host your day of days. Wishing you a lifetime of wonderful from us all at team MM

Sunshine Coast Modern Coastal Fresh Wedding

The Modern Coastal Fresh Wedding Trend is sweeping in like a summer storm across the ocean in the valley after a run of festival backyard, shed rustic.

Modern Coastal Fresh is so perfect for properties that look out to the ocean on the magnificent Sunshine Coast, it can be similar to a festival but less boho, rustic and more of an elegant flow of wedding beauty from space to space all in total luxury, no porta loos and guest discomfort in the elements… adding in all the comfort but with a big shot of glam.

We are actually giving 3 big cheers for this concept as guest comfort goes right up again without the need for formal seating. It is the ultimate, not too formal but a luxury plus style concept, innovation overload to suit our region perfectly and possibly how it should be.

Are we owning our own style at last?

The Sunshine Coast Style …elegant ,sophisticated Coastal with Luxe Chill. It also brings in a time of great change over the last few weeks where couples expect great service again, service and quality is back on track and real wedding venues, quality crafted food for our foodie generations and total comfort with all amenities and great plan B’s. It is the most asked for trend this month.

Brooke wanted to be ahead of her time when she married Callum, it was to be timeless and classic but with a modern twist and we believe she captured it perfectly, but more perfect… they captured it to suit themselves.

It was a real privilege to work with this couple and their beautiful families in a day of friendship ,love and respect.

As the saying goes …What is the best gift you can give a couple… Love , Respect and a RSVP

Our Design team of Love bird Weddings and Mondo Floral Design fit the brief in style bringing the four main elements together …

Modern Coastal Furnishings

Classic Textured Florals and Lush Potted Plants

Relaxed Spaces and Rooms for Flow

A Modern Twist on the Traditional Classic

Note the use of masses of fresh potted plants in fresh white tubs framing the view, white and wire, modern tables, brass and lots of fresh greenery for zing and texture. Softened with a classic white floral base, olive leaf, gum,David Austin roses, scented stocks, white tulips and Queen Anne’s Lace. Rooms to flow through not just one reception room, a stage to be set and move through each scene from ceremony looking out to the ocean, to garden party, then outdoor pavilion ,to indoor lounging, supper bar of designer sweets and Maleny cheese bar and then of course dance time but the ability to flow back outdoors again into the night and romantic spaces.

 

Add to that mix Queensland’s best Celebrant Jarrad Bayliss for one super mix of care, fun, timing and polish in the outdoor ceremony… no one quite has his dash and style as yet.This is also a 2018 trend of the professional Celebrant that is also being sort after and we have a great list a celebrants on our website.

The Love Note  duo for some cool afternoon outdoors vibes and then taking it up a notch for the reception and dance time on the D Floor, they have also swept onto the scene fitting this breif perfectly.

Maleny Lights Summer wedding

Maleny Manor

Lights of the Night with Stephanie & Bryce …fall in love with the days of Summer..

Of stolen moments in the moonlight with the one you love with maybe a flare or two ,a bouquet of intoxicating aroma and beauty wafting on the warm breeze.

Strung lights, romance and moments in the magic of the night.

Our exquisite Glasshouse Mountains playing a staring role and a private pavilion ceremony on the edge of the “Valley of Love” looking out to the Sunshine Coast.

Follow the girls journey from preparations, to simply walking downstairs to let the day unfold and following the path to what ever may unfold on your private love story.

 

 

Night time sharpens, heightens each sensation
Darkness stirs and wakes imagination
Silently the senses abandon their defenses
Slowly, gently night unfurls its splendor
Grasp it, sense it, tremulous and tender
Turn your face away from the garish light of day
Turn your thoughts away from cold unfeeling light
And listen to the music of the night

 

Maleny Manor
Close your eyes and surrender to your darkest dreams
Purge your thoughts of the life you knew before
Close your eyes let your spirit start to soar
And you’ll live as you’ve never lived before
Softly, deftly, music shall caress you
Hear it, feel it secretly posses you
Open up your mind, let your fantasies unwind
In this darkness that you know you cannot find
The darkness of the music of the night …

Australian and New Zealand Love Affair

[vc_row][vc_column width=””][vc_column_text]

Australian and New Zealand Love Affair

Start with an inspiration and we as a team can make it become a wedding reality,a little piece of magic made just for you…

We had it all…Love ,Family ,Respect and Tradition all in one beautiful day. A meeting of cultures from New Zealand and South Africa married in one amazing styled inspiration,bringing the outside in!

We wish our beautiful couple all the bucket loads of wonderful that this life can ever deliver and we give them a big thanks for adding their special flavour to this magical day.

The first inspiration was to have an outside marquee somewhere but as we have a venue that sits looking out to an amazing valley of natural verdant rainforest, why add another structure but instead utilise all the spaces in an elegant way.If anyone has organised a marquee wedding you will realise it comes with lots of extra elements to consider and a whole bit extra on the end budget. And we happen to have a venue that open outside to in,all under cover should you require.

The brief was to bring the outside in and for everyone to have a fabulous time! You will see the traditional Maori feather cloak the, fabulous King Protea featuring in the blooms and one very enthusiastic Hakka welcome. Note the greenery added to the room so that it felt like you where sitting in the garden,but in total comfort looking out to Noosa and Coolum and our sea of green that surrounds the estate.

Who wears the pants…our bridesmaids do, that’s who and why not when your invite states garden party ,Maleny… why would you not go comfy elegant? We are talking wedges ladies or flats for the feet, if you can run in heels go for it or otherwise leave the stilettos in the cupboard. Pants can be oh so elegant and flattering ,then you can actually sit on cushions around a palette table. This was a mix and match style with a fabulous colour palette, add the pop of the large protea flowers from South Africa and bam! you have the wow.

It’s all about the Peony

Peony Maleny Manor Love

It’s all about the P Word…

It’s all about the Peony…If you have ever seen the light in a brides eye at the P word you will know wedding dates are booked around this precious bloom’s availability. This was the base of this beautiful ,bright palette against a blush base, a total fiesta of fun.

Turn away now lest you also come under the spell of this intoxicating bloom!

Oh and in Australia, November is the peak month for this precious cargo sometimes starting early in October and then nudging into the first week of December if you are super lucky.

Add one very creative Bride who is also a great cook as much as she is a craft demon, with hand dying table runners and stringing together her own hand crafted streamers, no buying online for this lady. All for a gorgeous gal that normally rocks a hard hat!

Add in a great family of helpers,some fabulous entertainment, the bright red Kombi from Deluxe Kombi Service and we had our own special Maleny Fiesta with the pavilion decked in streamers of pink ,yellow, orange,blush and gold.

Beautiful Apples was the Flower Girl Puppy , we think she was smiling on the inside, in her very chilled pup way,  her specially crafted outfit was also made by the Bride. Puppies are such a big focus of our couples day’s and China the owl delivered the wedding rings in style swooping in as a surprise down the aisle.

As you can see beaming from these beautiful bright images, high on the list for Tamara and Tim was fun and family, love and respect, when you add in all those ingredients with a giant pop of colour , you are on a winner for your wedding day.

In the words of our In House Super Star Mondo Floral Designs as this wedding was all created from the florals up!

My goodness we love the opportunity to work with bright and colourful blooms, and for this particular celebration we certainly had a wow of a time creating the floral focus that highlighted this peony Maleny Manor wedding! Tamara and Tim were married at the gorgeous hinterland wedding venue in November and so of course peonies were high on their wish list for their feature bloom, and a combination of coral charm and Sarah Bernhardt peonies took centre stage in the designs, and what a delight it was creating the sweet hand held bouquets showcasing those delicious peony blooms. Due to our gorgeous bride’s location, all of our communication with Tamara pre-wedding was via email and as we do with many of our clients we created and designed her floral concept remotely based on her inspiration and her vision for colour, and so it was wonderful to see her ecstatic reaction on the day when we presented her with her bridal box, and she finally got to touch and see her wedding designs.

The beautiful bride and her gal pals all wore fabulous flower crowns and we created the beautiful hair garlands with pretty pops of pink, coral and mustard yellow blooms. We thought the flower crowns added that extra bit of glamorous wow to the styling, and the vivid pinks and corals combined effortlessly with the blush bridesmaids dresses. The floral concept showcased the most amazing summer florals, and alongside the beautiful peonies, dahlias, cluster roses, David Austin roses, lisianthus, Billy Buttons, berries and flowering fillers also featured . The gents had matching bright eclectic buttonhole designs and the vivid colour popped perfectly against their blue suits.

The ceremony featured hand made bunting inspired details created by the bride and her family, and our chair jars of bright blooms lined the aisle ready for the beautiful couple to say ‘I Do’.
Our antique gold chalice vases featured at reception, each featuring a collection of the beautiful summer blooms showcased through the bouquets, the pretty bright colours of magenta and coral with pops of yellow and pink combined beautifully with the additional colourful details and table decor at reception.
