The Sunshine Coast is one of Australia’s most loved destinations, with stretches of coastline from Caloundra to Noosa, paired with the mountainous range of the hinterland boasting rainforests and national parks. Our recent styled shoot was all about the Sunshine Coast Summer – relaxed outdoor dining.
Our style team of Lovebird Weddings and Mondo Floral Design created a playful summer alfresco outdoor wedding dream. Beginning in The Pavilion with an outdoor ceremony, then wandering to The Helipad for drinks and canapés at sunset. For the reception an exceptional outdoor dining experience in front of the Manor taking in the sweeping views and evening lights of the Sunshine Coast coastline.
Think ‘contemporary fresh’. Hints of soft muted mustard, honey and amber, toffee roses, cappuccino tones with pops of lemon, paired with soft linens . Wild winsome poppies, bold skies, fresh cuisine and clinking glasses in toasts of love.
Amber tones shining through the coming season with luxury amber glassware from Table for Louis, along with Noritake raised rim dinnerware and gold cutlery. Bamboo chairs add a relaxed coastal style or choose the white bentwoods for a more classic style. Finished with rich mustard linen napkins and sophisticated menus, with custom place card wrap from Bluebird Invitations.
All this under festoon lighting with the backdrop of Maleny Manor, Noosa and Mt Coolum on the coastline.

A springtime wedding in Queensland brings cooler temperatures and longer days. It is also the most popular season for weddings because of the abundant supply of flower options for your wedding blooms. To assist with all things wedding florals, we spoke to Terrianne from Mondo Floral Designs on floral seasonality.
It can often be a very confusing adventure navigating your way through the information on what flowers are available for your wedding day, and you certainly wouldn’t be the first bride-to-be to assume that your absolute favourite bloom MUST be available for your wedding day, because let’s face it each and every wedding magazine that you buy features it on the front cover!
However depending on what date you have chosen to say ‘I Do’ available wedding blooms generally change for each month. More times than not a wedding date is in place and it can be overwhelming and often a little upsetting for brides-to-be to find out that their dream wedding flower isn’t going to be available. It’s important to do a little research before getting your heart set on certain wedding flowers, and talking to your floral designer is by far the best way to access accurate information on seasonality and available wedding flowers for your day.
So it’s no surprise when clients come to see me and are completely confused by what wedding flowers are available and at what time of the year. The good news is though, there are wonderfully delicious wedding flowers available for each and every season, so regardless of what time of the year you choose to celebrate your love, we can assist you in planning for your Sunshine Coast wedding flowers concept, providing you with accurate knowledge and professional advice, as well as creating a unique floral concept of seasonal blooms for your beautiful day!
