Aerial South Wharf
Aerial had us at hello! It was the marble floors, the floating staircases that spectacular 180 degree view overlooking Docklands, Bolte Bridge and Melbourne City Skyline.
Located in the heart of South Wharf positioned on the Yarra River, this contemporary venue is the definition of perfection that’s fore sure! Thanks Aerial for being so damn amazing to work with, we can’t wait for our next visit!
Ella’s Batmi Aerial, South Wharf
From the second we met Ella and her gorgeous family we knew we were going to be working on something pretty special. The Style Co. HQ was buzzing from the full creative freedom we were given to event manage & design a party that was all about having fun with family and friends.
Our approach to event design is always focused on the guest experience and connecting this with the person or reason everyone is gathered to celebrate. So we immersed ourselves in Ella’s world and fleshed out as much as we could about this vivacious teenager: Basketball, Rnb, Nutella and Basketball!
Seeing as Ella is a big (read massive) NBA fan we channelled all things basketball which lead us to this New York street feel with food trucks, edgy graphics and retro colour pops.
The entrance feature was a big statement piece that screamed ‘welcome to an epic night’. Made of 27 decals which were individually applied to each step and then adorned with large clouds of white balloons. The photo booth backdrop was a fun play on teen-talk with oversized ‘Yeah Yeah’ 3d letters framing a basketball court decal. We continued the basketball tribute with a feature bar with it’s own chain link fencing and basketball hoops attached to acrylic backboards.
Entertainment was such a big part of the night so it was only fitting that the 7 piece jazz band, dj and beatboxer had an impressive stage with custom ‘ELLA’ neon lights glowing on them all night long.
The finishing touch was dressing the staff so we swapped white shirts/black pants for street wear complete with custom ‘Ella’ t-shirts, visors and sweatbands.
The biggest of thank you’s must go to Ella and her family who trusted us with their vision. We really are incredibly lucky to do what we love and create relationships with some amazing clients along the way!
Jess + Ben Aerial, South Wharf
Jess and Ben reminded us that love is ageless and when you know, you just know. There was no question that these young lovers were destined to grow old together and it was our honour to celebrate the beginning of their forever.
The big day itself couldn’t have been more perfectly scripted. The sun was beaming over the Malvern Gardens and the sweet folksy sound of Feter Hendel serenaded guests as they made their way to the Chuppah. The look and feel was romantic yet modern with a boho edge. Placed along the aisle we created puffs of wild florals and grasses which lead to the birch structure decked out with blush and neutral toned florals.
Over at Aerial, South Wharf we turned down the lights and everything got sexy. Clouds of Gypsophilla crept down the staircase to the bottom where a pool of candles flickered across a decal of Jess and Ben’s favourite quote.
The fun pink acrylic seating chart let all their ‘favourite people’ know they were in for a treat! That moment once the curtains were drawn, revealing our floral installation with its custom neon illuminating the dance floor and dining tables was pretty special. The first tablescape design used rose terrazzo tiles and luxe low lying florals. The second was a metallic gold hoop adorned with blush roses, gyp, pampas and phalaenopsis orchids.
All the lovers, young and old, danced the night away and memories that will last a lifetime were made that night. It was our privilige to hand craft the perfect day for this perfect couple.
“Take a lover who looks at you like maybe you are magic”. And that they did…
Big big love to you Jess + Ben, you are magic.
Natasha + Justin Aerial, South Wharf
Tash + Juzzy, like most Melbournians are lovers of good food, fashion, design, travel, the odd drink (or a few) and an epic party! And boy do they know how to party!!
So when they chose us to design their modern day black tie wedding, we knew it had to be pretty schmick!
We took it from the top and started with the invitation to give the guests a taste of what was to come.. the tri-fold invitation featured a custom designed ‘flowerbomb’ print, bold typography, a gold foil shard to house a map and more deets then finished off with a luxe velvet ribbon (that they packaged into little black box)… talk about a teaser! It was pretty spesh to say the least.
The soft floral and flowy foliage were the feature in the ceremony, framing Tash and Juzzy while they wed in the gorgeous Treasury gardens. For the reception at Aerial South Wharf, guests were treated to deeper floral tones with a healthy dash of black and gold metallic shards and monotone ‘flowerbomb’ prints.
From the entrance staircase, to the bar features, photo backdrop, signage, pop-up gardens, table arrangements, cake, linen, crockery, cutlery and stationery… every detail was covered. All the guests had to do was enjoy the feast by the fine folk at Food + Desire, drink to their hearts content and party hard into the night with the newlyweds.
BIG BIG love from us Tash + Juzzy! xx
Now please… enjoy the eye candy below 🙂
Thank you again for putting together the most spectacular wedding Juzzy and I have ever seen, we are so proud that it was OUR day! You and the team were absolutely phenomenal, we couldn’t have asked for more! 🙂 xxx

Andrea + Steve Aerial, South Wharf
You know those charming couples you come across every once in a while.. the ones that make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside? Yep, Andrea + Steve were THAT couple. They were funny, stylish, kind and completely and utterly in-love. Andrea with her graceful approach to everything and Steve and his infectious laugh that lit up our studio each time they came around…. They also had us at “Do what you think will look amazing!”
Andrea + Steve’s wedding was the perfect example of romance with a contemporary edge – clean lines, modern textures and elements of timber and greenery with the classic palette of greys and whites brought together Andrea and Steve’s refined yet organic dream wedding at Aerial, South Wharf. We really are so lucky to work with such amazing couples that go on to become our friends.
Thanks Andrea + Steve you guys rock!
