Each year we take part in Sunshine Coast Brides magazine and for the current edition we combined forces with our friends at Lovebird Weddings, and together we collaborated on this stylish Scandinavian inspired shoot that took our English country garden location to a whole other level!
Our beautiful venue Maleny Manor is a hinterland haven for many, rich in landscape and boasting spectacular views, this glamorous wedding venue will host hundreds of weddings each year, most of which we take part of, but on this particular Autumn afternoon we decided to transform this impressive Maleny wedding space into a luxurious garden party soiree with rich and decadent décor in unison with breathtaking blooms!
The ceremony space was styled simply with white on white décor accents and soft muslin fabric that billowed beautifully in the breeze. Our opulent colour palette of rich red, burgundy, magenta, white and cream, made a beautiful picture and was featured by a mass of blooms in a collection of vases on and amongst the rustic wine barrel placed nearby. Pretty petals adorned the grassy plateau, and the sheik white bamboo archway was seen glistening glamorously from far away.
The enchanting pavilion featured at Maleny Manor was transformed into a decadent dining area, with Love Bird Weddings creating a stunning styled tablescape that we then accented with simple blooms in contemporary glass vases, pillar candles were featured within the alluring table space and the rustic inspired timber stumps completed the winter elegance beautifully with a small amount of rustic. Our sleek timber installation structures hung high above and housed the garden of beauty with a mass of dangling flower blooms. Solitary stems of roses, peonies and sim carnations were suspended from above and floated glamorously over the dining table.
The hanging flower installations created instant impact, the effect was quite dramatic and we loved creating a little bit of flower theatre from high above!
After that amazing dining experience we expect that it is time for a glass of red, some cheese and most definitely cake! The sophisticated lounge space at Maleny Manor featured a lavish chill out area that was complete with sumptuous savoury delights and an amazing naked cake created by Cake Designs. The fireplace was certainly our focus and we created an opulent garland of foliage that featured magnificent peonies, this garland of blooms nestled exquisitely around the mantle of the open fire place and finished off the luxurious end of evening festivities fabulously!
Our beautiful model from Division Models wore Elizabeth De Varga, and we loved the rustic inspired hair piece we created for her, in combination with the natural stem cascading trailing bouquet we designed, it was the perfect styling touch! With beautiful hair styling by Coastal Style Mobile Hairdressing and the divine make-up by TF Make-up, our model was certainly dressed to impress!
