Real Wedding | Melissa + Adam | Coolibah Downs Private Estate, Gold Coast
We just can't go past an elegant marquee wedding in the hinterland, especially when it includes a cute chapel and a white on white colour palette! Melissa and Adam recently tied the knot in a relaxed celebration at Coolibah Downs on the Gold Coast, and we were lucky enough to play a role in their day with our range of cocktail and reception furniture hire to complement their beautiful styling.
Following a sweet ceremony in the Coolibah Downs chapel complete with a golf-buggy entrance, guests made their way to a stunning white marquee for a reception filled with glittering fairy lights, relaxed decor and elegant gold details. Rustic wooden tables were paired with white Tiffany chairs, while our summer sofa package contrasted perfectly with our gold soho coffee tables and round linen ottomans. Desserts were piled high on our simple white trestle table, while a scattering of wine barrels added an earthy and organic touch to the setting.
Describing their style as a mix of rustic and bohemian, we loved looking through these gorgeous images by White Fox Studios and listening to Melissa and Adam share some more details from their special day. Check out more snaps from this beautiful Gold Coast wedding below along with our top furniture hire picks to recreate this look!
