A craze taking the wedding world by storm is the "Westival" - a wedding-meets-festival. Maleny Retreat is the perfect blank canvas wedding venue to create your very own Westival ... wedding festival !
Trent and Melitta initially bonded over play dough creations and sand pit adventures. They first met at their pre-school, where they both grew up, on Bribie Island, however it was quite a number of years later and a day at the races that saw them come together.
After six blissful years together, Trent proposed, and what followed was a "westival" at Maleny Retreat. "A westival?", you ask. Indeed, a wedding-meets-festival that has the key elements of a relaxed atmosphere, live music, great food, oodles of space and every friend and every family member that could be gathered to celebrate.
Maleny Retreat is the perfect Sunshine Coast hinterland wedding venue for such an event, and Andrea Thompson was there to capture the day.
