We love fairytales, and Alice in Wonderland is one of the best. It’s the absurdity that is so appealing, an upside-down world where animals speak in riddles, drinks make you shrink and croquet is played with flamingos. The mind of Lewis Carrol must have been a marvellous place to be, and we aimed to pay small tribute to it with this Alice in Wonderland wedding.
Maleny Manor is located at the gateway to the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, a secluded private estate offering stunning ocean and mountain views and boutique accommodation. In this picturesque location our bride and groom set a giant tipi overlooking the misty valley beyond.
With garden games (croquet is a must) set outside, we let our imaginations run wild inside the tipi with a huge cherry blossom tree, vintage lounges and cozy rugs laden with floor cushions. An elegant carved wooden day bed circa 1930 was placed under the branches for guests to recline on as they nibbled on tiny “eat me” cup cakes. Bright florals were placed throughout and hundreds of candles provided ambient lighting.
So. Much. Fun!
Guests were completely wowed and no doubt enjoyed every moment in the surreal surroundings that were created for a truly unforgettable experience.
