Paddington Weddings Bridal Designs Launch New Label at Maleny Manor
Beloved bridal house Paddington Weddings launched their exciting new collection for their label Bertossi Brides at beautiful Maleny Manor with a stellar team of creatives who added their touches to the day.
Designer and brand owner Anne Bertossi loved showcasing her brand new collection on this shoot. The collection offers clean lines with a timeless, classic silhouette for todays modern bride. Each gown is individually created by the Paddington Weddings team of talented curators, hand made for each of their clients in their studio in Brisbane. Anne sources the highest quality fabrics and European laces abroad and new offerring from the Bertossi Brides label range offers affordable, yet luxurious gowns for brides all over Australia.
The range of bridal gowns that will now be more available and accessible for brides, was launched here on the Sunshine Coast, with wedding venue Maleny Manor selected to host the fashion shoot. Anne and her team have had a long love affair with the area and in particular Maleny Manor as many of their brides choose the venue to celebrate their wedding day. ‘With scenery as amazing as it is on the Sunshine Coast both by the ocean and the hinterland, we love that many of our clients want to enjoy as much time as possible outside and Maleny Manor has all of that and so much more.’ The shoot touched on the interior of the award winning wedding venue as well as the varied locations outside, with a stunning vista spectacular as the finale on the lower plateau on the property. Oh it’s gorgeous…..we are in love with the colours, and that sunset ….goodness me!!!
Sought after wedding stylists Evalyn Parsons Wedding Hair and Kate Ellen Make Up Artistry created the beauty and hair styling looks on the models, with Mondo Floral Designs providing the wedding bouquets, hair flowers and that amazing love floral ring. ‘I wanted to accent the colours of the sky through the florals, so we designed the concept with peach, apricot, mid pink, and burnt apricot tones, with a pop of focal with the divine King Protea and of course the gorgeous peach Phalaenopsis orchids!’ said Terrianne Foale director and owner of Mondo Floral Designs. ‘The feature hair floral was all about fun, love and laughter and I adored the touches of peach and pink, it was aligned to accent that amazing sky.’
Liz James from Soda Wedding Photography was selected to photograph the day, her bright vivid images and her ability to capture the iconic landscape shined brightly through her work, and she proved to have the perfect direction and a solid creative eye behind the lens. ‘I was so excited about shooting with all of these amazing suppliers at Maleny Manor. I’m lucky enough to get to shoot at the Manor fairly often… it is honestly a photographer’s dream location! The thing I love about Maleny Manor is that there is something different to work with and eye catching each time I am there. It’s one of those special locations that is amazing year round… the view, gardens and the Manor itself are so great to work with. On this particular day we were blessed with an amazing sunset and lots of colour in the sky to work with which was fantastic!’ said Liz.
Of course Maleny Manor is renowned for making wedding dreams come true, and as these captivating images show, it’s no surprise that they are also famous for their landscape and creating an elegant outdoor connection to the views and the valley gazing out to the Sunshine Coast is just the start of their beautiful wedding story. Venue manager Marlene Murray suggests that a return to classic styling with refined yet modern sophistication will feature prominently, and pops of fun colour are high on the radar for wedding celebrations for 2019.
This collaboration seems to be right on trend then…..a gathering of creative wedding professionals focussing on the incredible gowns, adding touches of modern colour, sassy styling and surrounded by the most breathtaking of backgrounds.
