We’re a family owned, small business based at Bundaleer Rainforest Gardens.
Let us introduce ourselves because we would love to welcome you to Bundaleer, a relaxed and fun place to be married.
We can say first-hand, it’s the best place to be married. How do we know? Marie-Claire and Keenan were married at Bundaleer in 2015 and members of the Styling Team and the Bundaleer Team organised and attended the wedding. Between us, we’ve not only been stylists & newlyweds at Bundaleer but guests too and we know for sure that the little slice of paradise we all know, and love is just as charming and peaceful no matter the time of day or year you’re getting married. You’ve made a beautiful choice.

Apprentice Junior Stylists.
Our daughters Riley & Helena contribute to our Blooper Real regularly, either in frame during the photography process or making noises in the background of filming. Our family business wouldn’t be the same without them. Together, they have a keen eye for anything fragile, and impeccable timing for needing a drink at the Bundaleer water cooler. We love to include them in life at Bundaleer as they have grown up on the property and Bundaleer is a part of who we all are.
