I still recall my initial conversation with Corrine last year. We chatted for quite some time and on speaker with Richard to talking all things Formula 1, as my husband is obsessed too like Richard! Then Corrine drops the bomb shell………….I was a wedding planner and have done events for quite a number of years! Well now the pressure was on!
Having worked in the industry herself Corrine knew exactly what she wanted and that was to ensure she had a stress-free day, so the first thing booked when speaking with me was a wedding coordinator for the day. Corrine and Richards wedding reception was at a well-known Noosa restaurant- Noosa Waterfront Restaurant. Being in a venue establishment meant they could book our half day wedding coordination package as the MC and venue would be able to take over for the evening proceedings. This is exactly why we opted to offer a half day coordination package so we can help throughout the day and get you to reception.
With 3 locations for guests to navigate Corrine and Richard both wanted to know their guests would be in safe hands. There lies our job as a Sunshine Coast wedding planner. Meeting and greeting guests on arrival to Hidden Grove Noosa, onto the Catalina Boat for canapes and drinks before disembarking and heading onto reception at Noosa Waterfront Restaurant.
When speaking with Corrine and Richard they needed styling for their special day. So why not book it all with one supplier! Especially as Corrine and Richard are from interstate, they wanted everything to be seamless and convenient. So they booked Maple Weddings and Events wedding styling services.
When we are styling one of my first questions, I ask is have you booked your florist yet. The reason we ask this is so we can then work with the florist to tie the florals and colour palette into the styling. Corrine hadn’t yet booked a florist so of course I recommended our friend Courtney over at Fiesta Flora, a local Sunshine Coast Hinterland wedding florist. Corrine adored Courts work so that was easy!
Courtney from Fiesta Flora spoke with Corrine about all thing’s flowers and one of the things was the colour palette. Corrine couldn’t decide if she wanted pastel tones or bright and vibrant. As you can imagine 2 very contrasting styles. After much discussion and deliberation Corrine chose to mix the 2 .
Vibrant flower tones against the blue ocean at Hidden Grove Noosa was picture perfect. As soon as guests arrived there was the wow factor. Everyone was beaming with excitement and so many conversations about the beautiful colours. We opted to go a mix of white and timber using our most popular timber rustic arbour with white seating and the vibrancy of the flowers.
As always, working with Fiesta Flora we are mindful of couples spend and like to reuse where possible. Fiesta Flora used glass vessels for the blooms which we tied on the chairs at the ceremony then relocated to the reception as table centrepieces along with the gorgeous arbour piece to be displayed on the bridal table.
The Noosa Waterfront Restaurant is just that. On the waterfront. With the glass doors open and beautiful breezes it certainly had a coastal vibe. Against the dark furnishings in the restaurant meant the bright floral colours stood out yet the dinner mood was set with pillar candles and timber name placements for final touches.
Everyone had a fun night dancing the night away with live tunes from the most well-known duo on the Sunshine Coast The Famos.
