You all took it to the next level and we could not be more thankful to you. Maleny Manor feels like our second home, and you all, family. We are so blessed to have started our married life at Maleny Manor, it really is a magical place. 


I want to say a special thank you to Eve (you are such a bloody legend) as well as Jamie and Dakota! You guys deserve a medal for dealing not only with me but all the other stressed out brides, taking every last-minute change and crazy request in your stride. You really did make us feel like the most important people in the world on our special day! You are all incredible at what you do and I could not wished for a better team, it has been such a pleasure working with you all these past few months!

Misty Maleny Wedding Romance

The day had been interesting with showers and just not clearing but it decided to go totally into overdrive at the end rewarding us with double rainbows in the skies!

With glamerous copper decals from Mondo Floral Design, complimented with romantic white and blush florals, Regina & Larin’s reception was truly one to marvel at. 

The whole estate glowed with some of the most beautiful skies we have ever seen across the valley of love just for Regina and Larin.

Summer Hamptons Style

Hampton Style Place Setting - Corporate vent

Summer Hamptons Style Wedding

A special summer concept offer for those amazing Maleny Evenings…

A touch of elegance on our white pavilion kissing the edge of the valley to the Sunshine Coast, with views to Mt Coolum and Noosa over our rainforest valley.

Flow through the whole estate in a variety of spaces or rooms in style.

Fresh Hamptons styling, bountiful foods, plus professional assistance… so the concept, planning and setup is seamless.

A vision of styling and florals to add all the luxury elegance you could imagine outdoors but undercover with a much more relaxed style of summer time dining on the edge.

Start on the plateau, move to the pavilion and garden party with a glass of bubbles in hand, flowing through the whole venue and the grand finale the “Supper Club” and dance time inside the Manor with the indoor/outdoor bar.

We have a team of Maleny Manor Mentors to guide you through all the processes and assist you with full style briefings, unique florals, hand crafted foods and beverage, service you desire and a coordination team with you each step of the way.

 Welcome to our Hamptons in the Hills…

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.

Walk a day in her shoes

Walk a day in her shoes…..

Challenge accepted!

We all think after a few years we know all about it …but do we actually?

No sorry we don’t, so operation walk in her shoes began.

Step one organise the details with some great friends in the industry.

Step two get the right undies, shoes and attitude and go for it.

Step 3 try to act natural in front of the camera with the fab Talitha from Artography. Another great learning curve!

Elizabeth de Varga and Makeup by Kim McLeod came to the rescue with at least 15 gowns , jewels headpieces and the know how…thank goodness.

As our Brides often get ready onsite it was the best exercise we could have done to see how it feels, how long the process takes and how to manoeuvre in a gorgeous gown when you are not used to frocking up.

Where we out of our comfort zone YES, did we feel odd, then great ,then awkward …ummm yes we did in a beautiful, fun kind off way.

It made us reassess spacing, cueing of entrances to the ceremonies, patience when you move and the gown is not flowing…shoulders back flick and kick…smile and turn.

It gave us a better idea of the timing from upstairs to the ceremony pavilion and how to go about it. How long it takes for the girls to start to relax into the process of being a superstar for the day.

An appreciation of how much they may be out of their comfort zone hoping all the planning and choices come together on the day so you are the one in the white dress looking and feeling amazing.

So not only was it a great team building exercise and much cleaner than Tuff Mudder or Paintball the Kitchen staff suggested but it gave us some great tips.

  1. We all have bits that work and do not work for us choose a gown made for you and altered for you with love and care.
  2. Makeup can be a breeze when you have wedding professionals
  3. Getting ready onsite is enough without transporting to and fro to a venue.
  4. A relaxed environment is essential.
  5. You will need help with a long train or veil and we can advise the bridesmaids better on gown handling work place health and safety now for all involved. Yes some gowns are a work of walking art and have to be treated accordingly.
  6. A pre shoot for your engagement will make you more comfortable and cancel out the poses you think my work in which on reflection simply look odd.
  7. Staircase guide advice now comes from first hand experience.
  8.  Bouquet positioned bellybutton and out making a beautiful frame of your silhouette with your elbows.
  9. Have a spot for tissues or a hanky or a gown with pockets…very handy.
  10. Enjoy it and the process with all your heart and with some assistance from the venue and those that care about you have the time of your life.
