The Bride’s Tree in true style


Last weekend, we met a gazillion brides at the Sunshine Coast Bridal Showcase. It was awesome! So many gorgeous brides have recently been engaged over Christmas and New Year, which is so beautifully festive and romantic. It also means the whole Wandiny room at Novotel Twin Waters Resort was absolutely packed full of excited wedding planners. 

Of course we always strive to have the prettiest stand in all the land, so this year we commissioned Chelsea Bennie from Simply Style Co. to design our stand. We asked Chelsea to take our brand and her impeccable taste and create a little bit of romantic magic for us. Mission accomplished, wouldn’t you say? 

Terri Hanlon Photographer popped along to take some pics for us, so we could show all of you lovely brides who couldn’t make it to Twin Waters on the day.

Thanks Terri and Chelsea! 


White on white with a touch of gold was the colour palette for our stand. The white wash wooden flooring extended from the specially-created fancy pants backdrop, which has just found its calling within the Simply Style Co. styling and hire business. 

A sprig or two of delightful greenery was draped along the top of our stand, and lent some continuity with some lush plants in wicker baskets.

Posing like the little posers we are, parked by our pretty little stand. We were careful not to kick over the gorgeous gold lanterns housing pillar candles, adding more light and romance to our stand.  _TH11228Sally (me) on the left, Jenny on the right.
