Happy Holidays from The Bride’s Tree

It is time for us to sign off for another year. Wow, hasn't it been a simply wonderful year of glorious Sunshine Coast wedding inspiration! We have adored every minute, bringing you the very best this region has to offer.

If you weren't already aware, let me just let you in on a little secret: the Sunshine Coast is a hub for weddings. It is not only a popular South-East Queensland wedding destination, it's one of the highest grossing region for weddings anywhere in Australia. It is up in the top wedding destinations in Australia, and people from all over the world want to get married here. 

Of course it goes without saying that brides and grooms are attracted to our absolutely amazing natural attractions. Our beaches are among the most beautiful and pristine in the world, our hinterland is nothing short of magical. The local people are friendly, we have some of the most delicious fresh food on the planet and we have unique wildlife, endemic to Australia. 

However, it's not only the beauty of the region that attracts drones of couples and their guests to the Sunshine Coast for weddings, but the fact that when you get married in our neck of the woods, you can bet your bottom dollar you will have an amazing day. Thanks to the hard-working, innovative wedding professionals and the wedding venues that run their weddings and events seamlessly. 

To support and work alongside the people in this industry is a true privilege. The Bride's Tree thanks each and every one of our A-list Vendors, and you dear readers, for joining us on this journey each day, and each year. As we enter our fourth year bringing you daily inspiration, we thank you for your ongoing support and look forward to a 2015 full of weddingy goodness. 

For now, we are taking a little break from daily blogging, however to keep getting your daily fix of bridal bliss, follow us on Facebook, where we will be sharing all of our most popular articles of the year, according to what you clicked on most. 

A little hint… January-February 2015 is bringing with it some very exciting local wedding events, and we are putting out our 12th magazine edition at the end of January. 

Now here are some of the highlights from our Christmas wedding shoot at The Lakehouse Sunshine Coast, which was definitely up there with our favourites from the year. 

Happy Holidays!
