Maleny Manor

A Maleny Manor Wedding


Phil was one of the first vendors we booked for our wedding and we’re so glad we did. Not only did we love the final product (he captured all the special moments of our wedding day). But he was also a great person to have around and worked easily with our photographer. Not only that he thought to have gum boots in the car for me because it had been raining a lot in the lead up to our wedding! So if you’re after someone talented, reliable and easy going – book Red Door Studios.




I had never met Sarah and Jayden before has this wedding. It was a joint effort by my friend and colleague Murray Redpath fantastic Brisbane based wedding photographer

Myself and Murray have worked together on many occasions. We always want to make the best out of the day. Not just for ourselves but also the couples?

It’s always about leaving that lasting impression on them, so they go away feeling delighted they had one of the best days of their lives. by

I have been to Maleny Manor on many occasions. I didn’t start until the ceremony. So it gave me more time to set up for when Sarah walked down the aisle

So after a 5 minute engagement after our many years together. We decided an intimate affair was in order (covid may have contributed). So we got together an elite group of people to help make our wedding day magnificent. We weren’t disappointed! Phil who I didn’t meet until seconds before the ceremony was so professional – we snagged him via our photographer Murray. He slipped into the day seamlessly. We got on so well it’s like we’ve known each other for years so we were all pretty comfortable around each other. He captured everything and anything that was part of our day. Even went grape tasting (very sour). He went what my husband and I thought was above and beyond but as you look at his work that’s his standard. He’s done such an amazing job! We would like to thank you once again for helping make our day amazing. you were an pleasure to be around and your work is amazing thank you!!

Schae brief was only for the film to be slow and romantic. When I found out there were using one of my favourite poems in their vows, and knew this would be a perfect opportunity to use this in a film. The poem by EE Cummings (I carry your heart) is something I have been eager to use for some time, and it’s one of my favourite poems. I didn’t just want to create another wedding film. I wanted to shoot something unique and different.

If I used this poem, it would not look like any standard wedding video. I love my client’s they give me free rein to be creative and record the day in any way I see fit. When I told Schae my plans, she was excited to see what I had in mind. I did not give her much info, but I’m grateful she trusted me.

Even better, shooting this film at Maleny Manor was just a bonus. I have never been to a Maleny Manor for a wedding before, so it’s always exciting to shoot a new venue. It is a stunning place, with views overlooking the sunshine coast. The whole grounds are an endless playground to be creative. It’s not just the location. The staff go out if they’re a way to make us vendors feel comfortable and help us in any way possible.
