Sunshine Coast Hinterland Summer Showcase - Secrets on the Lake Weddings

Last weekend I had the pleasure of being one of the selected wedding suppliers at Secrets on the Lake in  Montville, as part of the Hinterland Wedding Summer Showcase.

It was such a hot weekend, the hottest in Summer so far, but we braved the heat and we were set up in the lakehouse, with stunning views of Baroon Pocket Dam. 

Wedding Open Days are a great way to see a wedding venue at it's best, and Secrets did not disappoint.   There were so many couples that told me they didn't even know Secrets existed.  Well, it looks like the 'secrets' out now!  

Secrets on the Lake only host one wedding per day.  Which means you have flexibility in choosing your ceremony location, anywhere on the grounds.  As well having having the whole gardens for just you and your guests.  The options for bridal party photos is endless, from the gardens to rainforest, to the backdrop of the dam to the picturesque wooden walkways and treehouses.

The accommodation is hidden among the trees and rainforest off the side of the mountain each with it's own theme.

They also have a cafe for guests as well as day visitors.

To keep me company was the wonderful Libby from Elizabeth and May.  Her wedding cakes are beautiful, but it's her macarons that are to die for!  They are honestly the best I've ever tasted.  Call Libby or Gen for a free tasting and cake design, they have a shop at Montville.

Sunshine Coast florist Janelle brought along stunning displays that brightened up the room.  She's so talented and she designs such pretty bouquets.  Visit her website for more or her work at From the Garden.

Sylvia and Colin from Maleny Montville Wedding Car Hire and Tours brought their classic Rolls Royce.

Sunshine Coast celebrant, Merlin Coughlan was on hand to greet bridal couples.

Angus was a treasure, delivering cold refreshing drinks while manning the Montville Getaways stand.  

I just love Secrets on the Lake.  I take my mum for lunch there once a year for her birthday, or Mother's Day and last year, my husband and I spent a night in the Possums Luxury Treehouse for our wedding anniversary.

The gardens and grounds are looking absolutely amazing!  Secrets is a true hidden wonderland and treasure on the Sunshine Coast.   Owners George & Aldy along with their family and staff are all such wonderful people who adore their property and love to give their guests the best experience possible.

If you're looking at getting married at Secrets on the Lake, I would love to photograph your wedding.  Send me an enquiry with your details and I'll get back to you soon.
