We must again send our most heartfelt thank you for making our wedding day so special. My bridesmaids have both commented since on how calm I was throughout the day (perhaps not what they expected!) and that was because I knew everything would be handled professionally by your team, and hence I had nothing to worry about but to enjoy the day. Our guests that we have spoken to since had such a wonderful time and this was so important to us, THANK YOU.
I am a bit sad that I won’t be dealing with you anymore and that is just a testament to how friendly and helpful your team is.
From initial dealings with Marlene and Peta, to Amy managing the details and the day, and the other wait and bar staff who were just delightful, it really shines through that you love your jobs.
Our favourite thing was having our whole wedding at one location, and what a stunning location it is!
To be able to have our ceremony, garden party and reception at one location, yet in different settings (pavilion, garden and manor) made for a very casual and enjoyable day for all. We also enjoyed being able to have photos close by while our guests enjoyed the garden party, so we were able to still be a part of it. The number of photographic locations within the property mean it’s easy to get gorgeous photographs and not stray too far from your guests, which we loved. Also, staying at the manor and having breakfast with our close family and friends the next morning was a wonderful way to come down from such a high…to still enjoy the gorgours surroundings and linger in the mountains a little bit before having to pack everything up and head home.
My advice to future Maleny Manor couples would be to use the suppliers recommended by Maleny Manor as they work together so well and communicate to each other about your needs for a seamless day. We were particularly thankful for the recommendation of Bo Peeps Babysitting Service to look after the 12 children we had at our wedding. They set up the loft with games and activities and looked after the children during dinner so the parents could enjoy their own dinner and speeches. It made the evening flow really well, with the kids rejoining us for dancing.
The whole Maleny Manor experience was incredible, and as mentioned above, you were so professional that I knew I didn’t need to worry about a thing. For me, the exceptional service was the things I did not expect, such as arriving back from our photos offsite to our bridal party waiting on the balcony of the bridal suite for us, and being able to go up the exterior stairs to greet them with a quick drink and freshen up privately before entering the reception. Also, coming back to our room at the end of the evening to rose petals and a jug of water & glasses (sounds trivial but made it much more relaxing) was a lovely surprise and finished the night in a sweet way.
Love, Alexandra & Jonathan
