When you happen to live in one of the most picturesque parts of the Mary Valley, it makes absolute sense to host your wedding there. That’s exactly what Nikki and Matthew did, creating a day filled with love, friends and family.
They may have had the additional challenge of Covid Lockdowns to contend with, but in the end they pulled off their dream day complete with a gorgeous ceremony flowing with florals, a romantic post-ceremony horse ride and finished the night celebrating with live music under a Sperry Tent.
Bride, Nikki, has been kind enough to share the details of her Mary Valley Private Property wedding day.

Love at First Sight
When Nikki and Matthew were introduced by mutual friends, they found an instant connection, discovering they shared the same passions in life. Then when it came time to propose, Matthew chose to do so surrounded by family and friends on Nikki’s birthday at her favourite local restaurant – Locale Noosa.
The Best Bits
