The all new Mercedes-AMG C 63 SE makes a whirlwind journey through the opulent world of weddings at The Valley Estate, where special events unfold against breathtaking backdrops.

Driving into The Valley Estate, with its conifer pine lined driveway and classic European charm, is akin to driving the all new Mercedes-AMG C 63 SE, a dream.

Nestled in the lush landscape of Currumbin Valley and adorned with grandeur, it’s a place where fairy tales come to life and dreams find the perfect backdrop. This is especially true for Tiffany De Luca, who adores her position as Sales Manager of The Valley Estate.

“Mercedes-Benz embodies everything we love—luxury, elegance and a touch of magic and this model is simply stunning,” says Tiffany from behind the wheel of the C 63.

The turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine, unmatched in power among production cars, can go from 0 to 100km per hour in just 3.4 seconds.

The downsized engine employs an electrically powered turbocharger system similar to the one utilised in Mercedes-AMG’s Formula 1 race car, meaning explosive and seamless acceleration.




With the new high-performance plug-in hybrid propulsion system capable of unleashing an impressive 671 of horsepower, the C 63 looks powerful from all angles.

Boasting 20-inch alloys, adaptive suspension, rear-wheel steering and carbon-composite brakes, the list of equipment in this Mercedes-AMG is lengthy. And let’s not forget the panoramic glass sunroof, ambient interior lighting, wireless smartphone charging, a Burmester 3D surround-sound system and a head-up display.

Quite simply, the C 63 is an impressive and luxurious ride, one that has found its way onto Tiffany’s wish list, where it would perfectly complement the estate’s dramatic wrought iron entrance gates.

The brainchild of owner Cherie Uzan, The Valley Estate was envisioned as a sanctuary where love could flourish amidst opulence and sophistication.

In 2020, the humble cow paddock was transformed into a sprawling nine-acre estate that now stands as a beacon of love and celebration.

Inspired by grand European elegance and industrial charm and specifically designed to host weddings, The Valley Estate offers couples the opportunity to commemorate their special moments in a distinctive and luxurious setting, surrounded by the breathtaking hinterland scenery.

“Our vision is simple yet profound—to be the epitome of luxury and timeless elegance in the world of weddings and events,” says Tiffany.

“We want every celebration to transcend the ordinary and leave an enduring impression on the hearts of those who celebrate life’s most precious moments with us.”

And indeed, since hosting its first wedding in May 2021, The Valley Estate has become an extraordinary venue, offering the perfect canvas for creating memories to last a lifetime.

Featuring several stunning buildings, including The Manor, The Glasshouse, The Chapel, The Retreat, The Sanctuary and The Terrace, every detail of the property exudes meticulous planning and refinement, guaranteeing guests luxury at each corner.

“There’s notable features throughout the estate that grace every wedding album,” says Tiffany.

“From The Manor’s grand chandeliers, the extraordinary hanging plants adorning the ceilings of The Glasshouse to The Chapel’s locally made stained-glass windows and Rosewood doors that frame spectacular hinterland views, there’s so many charming and alluring opportunities to enjoy and capture.”

While the venue has an exciting pipeline of flawless weddings and events in the works, it’s no secret the business is actively exploring new horizons.
