After ten blissful years together, best friends Paula and Simon wed in a classically beautiful Sunshine Coast hinterland wedding. It was their biggest priority to throw a memorable and enjoyable celebration to delight all of their 92 guest, many of whom had travelled from interstate and overseas. So they chose a seriously stunning wedding venue – Weddings at Tiffany’s.
Their ceremony took place in the venue’s very own chapel with the most amazing views of the rolling green hills and iconic Glasshouse Mountains. Andrea Sproxton Photography was there to capture the day beautifully.
“I wanted something elegant but simple, we chose our colours and then everything else flowed. I guess if anything we were thinking elegant but simple.”
“All of my bridesmaids and most of our groomsmen live interstate or overseas so they were delegated jobs via email. Simon and I did a lot of the planning together.”
“We wanted a venue that was magical and somewhere with the wow factor. It was really important to us that our guests had a great time.”
“We have fun together, we are best friends.”
“Our photographer Andrea knows the Maleny area really well so was able to take us to some great spots including a local farmers paddock – cows included!”
“We had a real mix of music at the reception, everything from the 80’s 90’s as well as current top 100. Our DJ Peter from Sunshine Coast DJs was able to put together exactly what we wanted, it was great working with him.”
