Springtime Wedding In Queensland

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!

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.

A wedding cake that is not just a wedding cake by one of Queensland’s most reputable cake makers Lee Berryman from Cake Designs Wedding Cakes.

Dusky Australian Wedding

Dusky Australian Wedding

The dusky romance of sunset,

Blush on the hillside, shining golden through the trees,

Warmed light touching the land and everything it see’s,

A special bush oasis, gazing to the pink and blue bands above the east ocean beyond,

Embracing everything our hearts are set upon…

The blue black of night, the mystery in the layers of what is to come…of what is to be,

The bonding and the burnishing of the glow that is meant to be,

Serenaded by the waters edge, feasting in the garden to the romance of the night…

Follow me, follow me into to the rays of sunsets last light, for the journey of your life.

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.
