Waterfront events are accompanied by bright, natural colours – something that Cloud Nine’s styling will reflect in your wedding reception. White linens draped over the table will be topped with tealight candles, brass geometric candle holders, and additional native flower arrangements.

Join together with loved ones over a long table feast of three magnificent courses designed by Wildflower Restaurant & Bar. The team at Wildflower are passionate in highlighting local seafood and seasonal produce, so guests will be star-struck by dishes such as a modern Mooloolaba prawn cocktail with lettuce, petite herbs, brown bread and butter, and a goat cheese panna cotta with a pear and maple roasted walnut salad topped in a shaved pecorino and pomegranate dressing.
