Teenager comes to rescue of stranded brides

A HIGH school student has offered to come to the rescue of brides stranded by the shock closure of a popular Maleny wedding venue.

Oscar Noble, a 17-year-old Nambour Christian College student, has been running his own marquee hire business, Noble Marquee Hire, for the past year.

When he saw the turmoil the closure of Tranquil Park Resort in Maleny caused to brides like Tayla Swanson, he came up with an idea of how he could help.

Ms Swanson was given only 16 days notice to find a new wedding venue after administrators sent her fiance a letter advising Tranquil Park was closing due to financial difficulties.

Oscar had only recently expanded his marquee hire business to include a wedding marquee with a 12 by 15 metre clear marquee.

The young entrepreneur has now sourced a "beautiful private wedding venue" and he is offering it at "no charge" to couples affected by Tranquil Parks closure.

He would also offer his marquee hire services and equipment at a "discounted price".

"I couldn't imagine the panic these couples would have experienced when they received the dreaded news," he said.

"I deal with a lot of weddings and know that they are already stressful enough without a venue pulling a stunt like this."

Thankfully, Ms Swanson who was due to get married next weekend at Tranquil Park has found another venue already.

And she is able to keep the beautiful hinterland view that made them choose Tranquil Park in the first place.

"We are getting married Pomodoras on Obi," Ms Swanson said.

"They offered to help."

She has been so "overwhelmed" by the offers of help since her story featured in the Sunshine Coast Daily on February 3.

If anyone affected by the closure of Tranquil Park wishes to contact Oscar he can be reached at noblemarqueehire@gmail.com or on 0403 093 004.
