Venue Review: Spicers Clovelly Estate

7th January 2013

Spicers Clovelly Estate is located in the heart of Montville, but like so many of the properties in this area, once inside the gates, you’re in a world of your own. Quite literally when you choose to hold your wedding at this beautiful French-inspired venue, as they offer exclusivity for your wedding and the opportunity to have guests stay on-site in the guesthouse rooms. 

Every one of Spicers Clovelly Estate’s ten luxurious suites has been designed with comfort as the first priority. From beautiful modern French furnishings and luxurious linens, to simple conveniences such as iPod docking stations, every one of the rooms is an oasis of calm so captivating you’ll almost never want to step outside your door.

This idyllic hinterland wedding venue is set in beautiful gardens, perfect for exchanging vows and taking bridal party photos, ideal for an intimate reception of up to 120 guests. There is a decadent, tastefully decorated dining room in the main house, or elevated Library Deck available for reception celebrations, and for your ceremony, the perfect spot under a sprawling Jacaranda tree. 

But hey, don’t take my word for it – go along on this Saturday and Sunday for an open inspection, as part of the Maleny Montville Wedding Professionals Bridal Showcase. This will be your one opportunity in 2013 to view all of the best wedding venues in the Sunshine Coast hinterland.
