Simple White Wedding in Maleny

Despite bucketing rain on their Sunshine Coast wedding day, Chloe and Peter laughed, cried and loved the day away with nothing but joy. Almost exactly one year to the day after their engagement, Chloe and Peter held their nuptials in Maleny. There they were wed inside the gorgeous on site chapel, which boasts one of the best views of the hinterland. 


Artography made the most of both the dreary day and the venue itself, by photographing the bridal party inside the beautiful chapel. When rain eased, they were taken to the iconic One Tree Hill, and even got amongst some handsome-looking cattle under a luscious canopy of leaves. 

The theme of Chloe and Peter's wedding was simple white elegance, and fun in the form of Converse shoes and gumboots! 

"The photographer has really managed to hide just how bad the weather was. Luckily I had bought umbrellas and gum boots just in case. We really didn’t let it dampen our spirits; I think the rain enhanced our fun really."

, "Having a good venue with fantastic staff allowed us to relax knowing that we and our guests were in good hands."

"My Great Uncle David played keyboard throughout the ceremony and canapés, playing his personal versions of some of my favourite songs during the ceremony, and his genre, jazz, for our guests entertainment."

"A good photographer for me is able to capture a feeling at a moment in time. I love the fact that I look at my photos and laugh, or smile remembering how I felt at that very moment."

"I can’t help but laugh at the photos with our umbrellas inside out from the wind; I was in stitches on the day."


"I will never forget how much fun we had with those cows, even when they were eating my dress."

 "It’s all about your attitude on the day, take things as they come and don’t be afraid to laugh at the things that don’t work out."

"(We had) a relaxed day and at the end of I got to go home with the greatest guy in room."
