Italy meets the Sunshine Coast Hinterland

Take 2! The Hinterland Tourism Summer Showcase was to be held in January 2021 however Covid put a quick stop to this. Everyone rallied and take 2 happened in February 2021.


We were fortunate to showcase at two beautiful Sunshine Coast Hinterland wedding venues – Mali Retreat and The Old Dairy Maleny.


The Old Dairy Maleny is an iconic Sunshine Coast Hinterland wedding venue with a beautiful barn, picturesque hinterland sunsets and overlooking the sprawling hills, that is the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.


Having already set up and creating a photo shoot from take 1 of the showcase we needed to reset and come up with a new concept and design to showcase to the 1000 plus visitors.

We love all aspects (well majority!) of our job as Sunshine Coast wedding planners and wedding stylists and nothing more so than collaborating with other creatives. Courtney from Fiesta Flora is a dream to work with. After we got over the disappointment of not showcasing the first time we regrouped and remained positive. We wanted to bring something to the barn that was inspiring and something with some wow factor. After tossing around some ideas, we started our mood board with colour palettes, layers and textures and came up with an ‘Italian soiree’.

Italy meets the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. The Old Dairy Maleny was transformed into a mecca with terracotta tones, candle spheres, gorgeous lighting from the team at Out of the Dark event lighting and not to mention the olive grove. The beautiful soiree was aligned with terracotta pots and olive trees with sprinkles of olives and herb gardens on the table.

As you enter the barn of The Old Dairy Maleny you feel like you are transported to another country. Something we felt was important now with Covid. Many people are missing traveling the globe, or not being able to have their wedding abroad or guests missing out on their wedding due to travel so what better way than to bring Italy to the Sunshine Coast Hinterland and be mesmerized by what you see.

We are so fortunate to work with so many beautiful people. All who supported each other and set up not once but twice to create such beauty and not to mention being able to meet and greet so many amazing couples who are dedicated to their wedding planning journey.A special thanks to Sunshine Coast Hinterland for supporting the annual event and ensuring the showcase did happen not only for the Sunshine Coast wedding venues and vendors but more so for the couples so everyone can keep planning their wedding day.

grazie e ci vediamo più tardi
