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
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’s most photographed private paddock, may also be the biggest charity earning paddock in Australia?
Owned by The Woods family, One Tree Hill donates all proceeds to charities and has donated over $40,000 since it opened to the public.
‘The entire Maleny community is my family’ says Mrs Florence Woods. Florence is a long time local resident arriving in Maleny with her husband Frank.
The Frank family believed that if you don’t need anymore, then you give it away and have been donating proceeds from One Tree Hill into the Maleny Community since 1917.
Over 20 years there have been thousands of brides and grooms use that sacred spot.
That charitable organisations that have benefited from this gesture are Maleny Solder Memorable Hospital, The Maleny Men’s Shed, The Maleny Show Society, Maleny Centaur Cadets, The local school Chaplains, Senior Citizens plus any in the community suffering tragic circumstances or just in need of a helping hand.
A simple bush tree perched on the edge of the majestic Glasshouse Mountain view has given so much, to so many.
Choose a professional photographer, who will arrange entry and pay the $50 charitable donation at the address on the gate mate. And please, as you enter, do tip your hat to Frank as a sign of thanks, and stop and ask for his permission to do, so just like his Grandkid’s still do, out of pure respect to one of Maleny’s founding fathers.
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.

Thank you for looking after us on our wedding day!!! It was such a memorable and perfect day and so much of it was thanks to the amazing job you all did to make us feel so special and cared for on the day.
We would like to make a special mention to the Manor herself! We felt very honored to have it all to ourself for 1 day, she didn’t disappoint and the view, grounds, reception area, rooms and loft were beyond anything we had ever imagined. Everything was manicured to a tee, spotless and clean and like no one had ever been married there before. We cant thank you enough for the effort you went to making the venue look how it did on our wedding day, it was breathtaking.
I think we have literally had a phone call or text from all of our guests with the loveliest feedback about each and every one of you as well the day on a whole. We had one of our Uncles say ‘it was the best event he has ever been to’, one of my girlfriends said ‘she would do anything to taste her entree just one more time’, my Mum saying ‘it was the best day of her life’, my wedding planner girlfriend saying ‘she cant believe how attentive the wait staff and Amy were on the night to everyone in the room’, I had my Auntie’s in total ore of how well their kids were looked after and made to feel very special and not to mention ourselves pinching ourselves on the day and also for the last 3 weeks that that was actually our wedding! it was like a dream!!
Marlene, thank you for keeping me grounded during that little hiccup of mine with the flowers. Having you there kept me calm in a moment of meltdown, but it was only a moment because of your genuine love and support.
You were also that smiling, caring face popping in out of the room and checking on us during the night, so we thank you for that. You go above and beyond and it doesn’t go unnoticed.
Peta, thank you for being my go to girl throughout the whole year leading up to the day. None of my emails went unanswered no matter how small the question. You were so helpful with advice in putting together the day I cant thank you enough! You made it all the more pleasant for me.
Amy, thank you for your attentiveness and care throughout the day and weeks leading up to the day. You are just so lovely and we were so lucky to have you as our coordinator for the day. I felt like we really got along well with you and I loved that we could have a giggle together during the day. You were perfect.
Simon, thank you for your genuine fun and happy presence you have, its truly infectious and all our contact with you has always been light hearted and so helpful and caring. We remember the morning we were leaving you helping us with the flowers, nothing is ever too much trouble with you so we thank you for all your support to us.
If you could also pass on our gratitude and thanks to all the wait staff and chefs and anyone else we are forgetting for their amazing service on the day. Guests were blown away with the service they received with their glasses always topped up and cleared away as needed and the food which was a huge hit!! So thank you, you helped in making our day as perfect as it was.
We have already been on the ABIA site and rated Maleny Manor venue 100/100 – there is nothing we would change about the day, it was perfect in every way and we still pinch ourselves that we had the privilege of having our wedding at the always beautiful Maleny Manor and with a team like you.
I have attached a few photos for you of the day.
