Modern Festival Fresh

You may ask how a stylist can identify your tastes better than you, but as Trudy Croad from Lovebird Weddings says, the process of identifying a couple’s style is very in-depth. ‘Getting to know our clients is a really important element of our job. Some clients come to us knowing exactly what they want, so then our job is about how to pull this look together with the furniture and decor that we own. Others come to us with a blank canvas and are really counting on us to come up with a look that reflects them. Generally though, concepts develop over time, which is why we value working with our clients in a consultative basis right up until their wedding day…over time tastes will change and new trends will develop, and our clients count on us to have a dynamic styling process so that come the day of the wedding, we really have evolved the original concept to be better and more relevant to here and now.’


Whereas a bride or groom may get stuck on a particular ‘colour theme’ or detail (floral arch, fairy lights) a wedding stylist will look at an event in an overall cohesive way, ensuring the styling tells a story about you as a couple, and the event has a particular atmosphere about it.

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.

Relaxed Wedding Elegance

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.

Relaxed Elegance Maleny

Relaxed Elegance Maleny

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.

Relaxed Elegance Maleny

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.

Maleny Manor Superstar

Our favourite moment from the wedding day was probably the ceremony. It was such a magical experience, with the hinterland as the backdrop on one side and all our loved ones on the other we couldn’t have imagined it any better.

To all future Maleny Manor couples the best advice is to trust the Maleny Manor Team! There is a reason they have won so many awards. They are experts at what they do! The suppliers they recommend are all amazing as well as tried and tested so let them take the stress from you and do what they do best. It gives you the opportunity to really enjoy the planning and the lead up to the big day.

Marlene, you are amazing. On the day you made us all feel like we were part of the family there. You headed off problems before I even knew about them. You spent time running around and making sure everything was perfect, even adding additional foliage to our chair for photos, all these little things that I would have never even expected and you just did them.

Peta and Amy thank you for being fantastic and helping me out with all our pre wedding questions and queries. My inbox has been feeling a little quiet now that I don’t have emails coming in from you! Amy thank you for everything on the day. You made the night run seamlessly and I’m so glad I had you to help figure out our run sheet beforehand amongst everything else you did.

We will never be able to thank you all enough for everything that you did leading up to the big day and on the day itself!

Every single person who works as part of the Maleny Manor crew is a superstar!

I was serious Marlene when I said I would move in! We want everyone we know to get married there just so we can come back and enjoy it over and over again.

Sending all the love and good vibes you so truly deserve,

Tia and Nick Miles
