Real Wedding: Madeleine & Corey in Maleny

On a typically beautiful day in Maleny, Madeleine and Corey got hitched. Their dream Sunshine Coast hinterland wedding was all about having a fun and enjoyable atmosphere with a hint of vintage charm. The lovely couple commissioned the likes of some of The Bride’s Tree’s fave wedding professionals to ensure they had an amazing wedding day. 

This is evident in the images below by Sunshine Coast wedding photographer, Andrea Sproxton PhotographyMadeleine’s pink and lilac bridal bouquet was a sweet vintage posy by Willow Bud.


Madeleine was a classically beautiful bride

On my wedding day it was very overcast however it didn’t rain and it just started to clear up as I walked down the aisle which was just perfect. 

We left our photographer, Andrea Sproxton, to choose the locations though we went to three different locations a stones throw from our Maleny venue. All very beautiful.

The weather and location were stunning-couldn’t have asked for nicer weather. Maleny is just beautiful at that time of year.

I popped a button on my wedding dress as it was too tight, and after the photos when I leaned down to put my shoes on it popped right off! I would recommend advising your dress maker when your wedding is two months before it is so you don’t end up getting your dress the day prior like me!


We decided to have a lamb and seared tuna entrée followed by chicken risotto and a beef dish. Desert we served the wedding cake as otherwise it just goes to waste!

Wedding Secrets Revealed

Biggest splurge: My wedding dress was more than I wished to spend at $2500 otherwise the catering was the most expensive part!

Best money-saver: I was able to get the wedding cake included in my package which saved a lot of money. Besides that I think my florist was very reasonable for the quality provided.
