Katie and Clint decided to do their wedding right. The ceremony was kicked off with the groom and his groomsmen arriving via helicopter, while the bride and her maids spent the morning being pampered good and proper.
108 of their guests descended on the expansive Maleny Retreat to leave the world before and celebrate in the happy couple’s love, as they said their I Dos overlooking the breathtaking Glass House Mountains.
After the official proceedings, the couple and their bridal party of eight joined their photographer from Moments by Frankie for wander around the pretty grounds of Maleny Retreat for a short photo shoot. Fortunately this hinterland venue provides many pretty spots for photo ops, so they were able to quickly rejoin their guests for the party. Under the twinkling starlight and fairy lights adorning the clear marquee ceiling, Katie, Clint and their closest family and friends danced the night away to their 7-piece jazz band and devoured delicious delicacies by Sunshine Coast caterers, First Class Functions.
In-between all the dancing and visits to the dessert table and cigar bar, some tear-jerking speeches ensued. There was an awful lot of love in the room – well, marquee! Be sure to get your tissues at the ready when you watch the film down a little further. It’s super sweet and well worth a watch to see more of Katie and Clint’s amazing Maleny marquee wedding.
