Mediterranean Wedding In Noosa | PART TWO: Reception Venue Styling

When thinking of a destination wedding in Noosa, you might not initially think Mediterranean. However, I bet after seeing the styling here, you will be planning your own Noosa Mediterranean wedding. 

Dreaming of a Noosa wedding or destination wedding that will give you all the holiday vibes, but with a high end luxe feel? I got you with this shoot I put together with some of the Sunshine Coast’s most sought-after wedding vendors, and a few new faces I’m pleased to introduce you to as well.

Destination Wedding in Noosa

We wanted this wedding inspiration shoot to feel like a true destination wedding – a world away in ultimate luxury. Noosa is a dream wedding location for couples the world over, but additionally our venue is tucked away in a secluded spot on the Noosa River that certainly makes you feel like you’ve found yourself your own secret spot to celebrate your wedding. 

Coming straight from Mykonos Luxury Villa to Noosa Waterfront Restaurant & Bar is a seamless transition for a Mediterranean wedding theme. The restaurant venue’s modern Italian menu and interior styling, along with its riverfront location, were the ideal choice – especially being only a quick 15-minute drive apart. 

Stying the tablescape in a Mediterranean vibe using this year’s Pantone Colour of the Year, Peach Fuzz, was the brief and Sunshine Weddings absolutely nailed it, complemented by floral designs from Gwen Floral Co. More on the styling below, however if you haven’t yet seen Part One of our Noosa Mediterranean wedding shoot, you need to go back and check out the fashion and beauty in our first location, a stunning grecian style Airbnb in Sunshine Beach.

Peach Fuzz Wedding in Mediterranean Style

Many 2024-25 weddings will utilise Pantone’s Colour of the Year, Peach Fuzz, so we wanted to inspire you by utilising the trending colour in a creative way. A Mediterranean style wedding colour palette can be soft and pretty, incorporating fruits for that just-picked-from-the-orchard feel. Actual peaches were the obvious choice and a sweet alternative to the often used citrus for a Mediterranean wedding tablescape.

Stylist Sunshine Weddings amped up the peach with the use of delicate pillar candle in various thickness and heights, as well as tall tapered candles. Soft linen napkins in the palest of pinks were just enough to tie in with the floral centrepieces that layered the colour palette with both pastels and a pop of deeper pink tones also incorporated in the signage.

Live Sketch Artist

Our model was immortalised by Britt Shoo Art, who offers a live sketch service for weddings. We love this idea for weddings! Guests will take home an original artwork of themselves to commemorate the day they celebrated your marriage.

Bridal Jewellery Styling

Our model wears show-stopping jewellery from Leskes Jewellers. Her engagement ring is a Madagascan cushion cut Morganite set in rose gold, paired with a wedding band encrusted with round brilliant cut diamonds. 

Am I the drama? I don’t think I’m the drama… maybe I am?

When it comes to jewellery, there’s always room for a little drama! Her statement necklace is a strand of ombré pink Edison pearls, and she wears drop earrings to match. Sometimes more is more, and with a reception mini featuring a giant bow on the back, we say go big with the drama – why not? It’s your big day after all!

Each look from this shoot was styled with stunning pieces from Peregian Beach-based Leskes Jewellers.

Upstyle for the Reception

In Part One of this shoot, our model sported a gorgeous voluminous blow out. For the reception, our wedding hair stylist, Niki Taylor (formerly Sass & Niki’s Wedding Hair), swept up her locks into a glam bun. It’s sleek, yet soft around her face with just the right amount of volume for a flattering bridal hair style. 

Our shoot just so happened to fall on a very rainy day, so we decided to demonstrate that opting for an upstyle for the reception is both a beautiful and practical choice. An upstyle wasn’t necessarily in our plan originally, but that’s the beauty of having a hair stylist available for a touch up service – a style change is entirely possible and allows you to roll with the punches on the day. You can’t control the weather, but you can plan ahead to be ready for anything on your wedding day.
