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 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.

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.

Congratulations Kate and Ryhs!

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

Maleny Manor Testimonial

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.

“He smiled understandingly-much more than understandingly. It was one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it, that you may come across four or five times in life. It faced–or seemed to face–the whole eternal world for an instant, and then concentrated on you with an irresistible prejudice in your favor. It understood you just as far as you wanted to be understood, believed in you as you would like to believe in yourself, and assured you that it had precisely the impression of you that, at your best, you hoped to convey.”

“His heart beat faster and faster as Daisy’s white face came up to his own. He knew that when he kissed this girl, and forever wed his unutterable visions to her perishable breath, his mind would never romp again like the mind of God. So he waited, listening for a moment longer to the tuning fork that had been struck upon a star. Then he kissed her. At his lips’ touch she blossomed like a flower and the incarnation was complete.”
― F. Scott FitzgeraldThe Great Gatsby
