Neil and Tash discovered Mango Hill amid the magnificent Sunshine Coast hinterland and fell in love with it in an instant. The gracious charm of the old white Queenslander with its wide verandas, spacious green lawns and cute-as-pie gazebo against the backdrop of a native bushland setting presented the couple with the homely atmosphere they were hoping for their wedding day celebrations. Most Sunshine Coast weddings happen in the hinterland. It is a wedding Mecca. The rolling hills and rustic countryside hold strong appeal for couples who are looking for that cosy romantic place to make their promises. The township of Maleny and the surrounding villages in the area welcome happy couples, their families and friends in typical Queensland style, which is always warm, friendly and amenable.  Rather than the white gazebo on the front lawns, Neil and Tash chose the more countrified timber pavilion on the edge of the bush with its wall of gum trees and subtropical foliage as their backdrop. With the groom and his groomsmen teaming up in blue suits and bow ties, the bride and her bridesmaids wore white.

Tash was stunning in a full-length lace gown with shoe-string straps, long train and a bouquet of white roses while each of her attendants wore differing styles of cocktail dresses to suit their individual features finished with large bouquets of delicate baby’s breath. Our photographers took full advantage of the scenic surroundings of Mango Hill Farm to emphasise the beauty of this couple and their bridal party without losing a moment of the fun-loving spirit that this couple shared.  The reception was held on the lawns under a large teepee capable of seating all 120 of their guests. In choosing Pelazzari Photography as their wedding photographer and videographer, we sat down with Neil and Tash to plan their wedding pics and video to take place throughout the day. This saw everything run smoothly to their schedule and enabled us to catch every special moment of their day.
