Planning For Your Mount Tamborine Wedding

Over the past 20 years in the wedding industry, we’ve witnessed the evolution of venues at Mount Tamborine that have stood the test of time.  While some venues have come and gone, there are two stunning award winning locations that continue to captivate couples.

But let’s shift our focus to the practical side of things – your hair and makeup prep.
Because let’s face it, every bride wants a wedding that will be remembered and how many brides can say that they got married in a rainforest? 
We are going to share our top tips for ensuring your wedding hair and makeup preparation goes off without a hitch when you are getting married at Mount Tamborine.

Weddings at Cedar Creek Lodges

Our first stop on the venue tour is Weddings at Cedar Creek Lodges.  It’s hard to put into words just how truly enchanting this location is.  With three one-of-a-kind ceremony spots surrounded by ancient rain forest piccabeen palms and native subtropical rain forest flora, it’s a setting straight out of a fairy tale.  And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, the soothing sound of a nearby waterfall completes the tranquil ambiance.

For brides getting married in the Rainforest Amphitheatre, the Creek Lodge is a popular choice for getting ready the morning of the big day.  Its close proximity to the wedding aisle makes it a convenient option for small or intimate bridal parties.  However, for larger groups, it may be worthwhile to consider booking one of the more spacious lodges like Mill or Lorikeet Lodge.

The lush beauty of the rainforest at Cedar Creek Lodge, has naturally filtered light.
Your hair and makeup artists may require extra lighting equipment to work effectively so make sure they have some mobile studio lights on hand.  Hollywood Brides have a lighting kit that we take with us on all locations, so we have the optimal working conditions. No matter what time of the day, or what location you are getting ready at,we are prepared!

If you and the groom are staying in a Creek Lodge and you have a bridal party of five or more for glam you might like to see if any other family members who have booked any of the larger lodges would be happy to allow the bridal party to utilise the extra space the morning of for getting ready.  This can be a great solution for accommodating everyone including your glam squad, videographers and photographers thus ensuring a smooth and organised start to the day.

Now operating under the name Shambala Estate, this stunning venue offers everything couples could dream of for their wedding day.  With a variety of picturesque ceremony locations including a waterfall grotto, chapel, pavilion, and garden, Shambala Estate has something for every couple’s style.

One of the standout features of this venue is the four private chalet-style cottages located on site. These self-contained cottages are perfect for getting ready on the morning of the wedding, with plenty of natural light streaming in through the large glass doors. We love working in this setting as this light is perfect for creating flawless makeup looks that look perfect in photos.

Having multiple cottages located next to each other is a huge advantage for larger bridal parties. Our systematic running order for hair and makeup allows guests to comfortably relax in their own cottage until it’s their turn, instead of being crammed into a small space.
The proximity to the car park also eliminates the hassle of carrying heavy gear long distances, making the morning preparations smoother for stylists.  Additionally, the strategic positioning of the cottages ensures privacy for each group, preventing any accidental sightings of the Groom before the ceremony.

With its elegant charm, convenient amenities, and beautiful surroundings, Shambala Estate is the perfect choice for couples looking for a dream wedding venue.
