It all started with a kiss on a dance floor back in 2012, followed by a loved up summer full of G+T’s, balmy nights and romantic dates- the perfect recipe for a Style Co. wedding 8 years later!

Alexandra, Josh and their gorgeous little man Freddie came to The Style Co. wanting to create one EPIC party surrounded by family and friends! The design was youthful, modern, cool & edgy to reflect the couples energetic and vibrant personalities.

Other than our gorgeous bride Alexandra, flowers stole the show abundantly featuring throughout the entire design. Modern textures of emerald and pearlescent marble contrasted with velvets and custom floral graphics for an elegant yet playful overall design.

To bring that special moment 8 years prior to life again, a hot pink neon reading ‘it all started with a kiss’ was suspended amongst a 3m tall wild installation cascading over
the doors leading to the bar (the key ingredient to all EPIC parties) Whilst a canopy of fairy lights and sea of candles made sure the dance floor was THE place to be!

One of our favourite moments with our clients is sneaking them into the room prior to their guests, so they can experience the magic of months of design and planning meetings come to life for their big day. Alexandra’s squeal and tears as she held Josh’s hand and walked through the room was a huge highlight for our team!

The epic party brief was nailed as guests danced the night away, G+T’s in hand celebrating Mr + Mrs Douglas!

It’s true we can throw a wedding like nobody’s business and the same applies for Bat Mitzvah’s! When gorgeous twin sisters, Jennifer and Georgia, came to us to style their special celebration the whole studio squealed with excitement. Carousel was the perfect venue for us to unleash the girl gang vibes we were channeling.

On arrival guests were welcomed with novelty balloons, disco balls and floor star quotes (cos it’s all about them #instagramablemoments). A few more steps into the venue and the focus was all about the bites, beats and beverages. J and G’s custom Shake Shack was the go-to-place serving up delicious thick shakes, spiders and slushies all night long. The dance floor with it’s humongous holographic decal and metallic fringe roof install was kept busy by Dj Stu, who’s booth was the epicentre of the food hub.This food hub screamed F-U-N with graphic cladding, neons and more coloured fringing.

The young and even not-so-young guests were kept busy with a gif booth, cool claw machines, a glitter station and even a surprise illusionist show. On departure the lucky guests received one last treat.. showbags!!

This truly was an epic celebration hosted by a legendary family who we’re secretly hoping will adopt us someday. Mazel Tov Jen and Georgia!!!

With the lust-worthy Melbourne cityscape backdrop, Carly + Simon exchanged I do’s under the reclaimed steel archway decorated by soft white florals and greenery. After the ceremony, Carousel’s stunning deck was transformed into an alfresco entertaining area, complete with a custom geo-marble bar. Overlooking the serene Albert Park lake, the intimate lounge areas featured cosy couches with pops of marble and gold.

The tablescapes created a simplistic canvas on which marble tiles formed the base for the fresh and contemporary centerpieces. This modern feel continued through the design of the herringbone inspired ceiling installation, adorned with leafy foliage, pops of vibrant florals and crystal cut lighting.

We can’t thank these amazing humans enough for being insanely sweet and for allowing our inner luxe feels to ooze through.

We had almost completely forgotten about how madly we love winter weddings. Luckily, the gorgeous Kate + Nick reminded us exactly how incredible it is to embrace the season with their beautifully subdued winter nuptials.

As always, Carousel, Albert Park created the perfect backdrop to compliment a wildly romantic colour palette that truly captured the essence of Melbourne’s winters. The space oozed refined luxury with muted hues that included soft grey linen as the canvas, accentuating the gold cutlery and black tapered candles to create a classic and intimate table setting. Subtle warmth was incorporated into the design through rich timber, leather, lush fur and dreamy flickering candlelight.

Luscious foliage reinforced the linear feel and created a softness as the installation canopied over the dance floor. Just before busting out their best moves, a sophisticated moody lounge was revealed, inviting guests to indulge in the flowing whisky being poured from the custom geo herringbone bar.

A huge thank you to the lovely newlyweds for being so trusting and teaching us that whisky is ALWAYS a good idea. Bravo to our amazing crew whose passion, creativity and enthusiasm is a little something like magic.

Sarah + Nick’s wedding included some of our favourite things, green goblets + bold colours + striking patterns + creative freedom (woo hoo!) and best of all.. a super fun couple… And we’re not just referring to Sarah’s moves on the dance floor!

Carousel, Albert Park was the perfect location for this beautiful wedding to take place.

Sarah + Nick loved being apart of the designing process, they trusted our crazy ideas and love for making patterns bolder and colours louder.

The tables were striking with arrangements of dalias, garden roses, smoke bush, jasmine, privet berry, amanthis and fresh figs. And our key piece, the fern installation above the dance floor with gold painted hanging pendant lights… yep, one of our faves!

Thanks Sarah + Nick for letting us do what we do best!

Jenny and James were D for Delightful!

From the get go they instilled their trust in us and knew that we understood that their big day needed to look and feel like them – a wedding that wasn’t like most other weddings… (music to our ears)

Jen’s pinterest page was a rainbow of yellows and whites so we picked citron as the highlight colour while James loved the idea of a mixture of textures so we introduced wood, concrete and linear patterns to the design.

They took a risk and let us create a design that wasn’t so ‘wedding-gy’ (we’ve officially made this a word) – it was more of a celebration of this beautiful couple and their individual styles.

This meant we got to build a custom bar, use Hebel blocks, custom concrete votives and citron dipped vases on their tables as well as create a custom ceremony arch powder coated in black and of course, the J+J welcome sign and reverse seating chart… plus so many other details!

The end result complimented Carousel, Albert Park perfectly and gave it a fresh look.

Thanks Jenny and James for being so trusting and a dream to work with.

Article in The Age 26/12/2014

Some couples prefer to hire event planners so they can enjoy the day, writes Sandy Guy.

It can take months to plan a wedding – writing guest lists, researching venues, choosing photographers, cars, florists, searching for the dress – the list can be endless.

Some couples opt to undertake much of the planning themselves, while others call in the help of event co-ordinators.

Nicole Konstandakopoulos and Lazaros Papasavas both with in family businesses: Nicole as manager of the Lonsdale Street dining institution, Stalactites Restaurant, run by her family since 1978; Lazaros in property and his American soul food restaurant, Mr Big Stuff.

“Nicole and I were too busy with our work commitments to be hands on planning our wedding, so we decided to call in the experts,” says Lazaros.

“Like all couples, we wanted our wedding day to be perfect. As we both work in hospitality, we know what it takes to get these things right. What we didn’t want was the hassle of dealing with of dealing with all the individual suppliers, and worrying that they wouldn’t deliver to the standards we were aiming for.”

Lazaros and Nicole heard of event planners The Style Co. through word of mouth.

The Style Co. owners Marie Cruz and Sarah Gonsalves and their team of designers, florists, planners and project managers guide couples from start to finish, making sure every aspect of the wedding day runs smoothly.

“From the outset, we saw that Marie and Sarah knew what they were doing, ” says Lazaros of the initial planning of their July 2013 nuptials.

“we were very clear about the style of wedding we wanted – modern but classic; understated yet elegant. They understood us quickly, and we knew they could deliver the outcome we were after.”

Nicole and Lazaros planned a sit-down reception for 200 guests. “we looked at several venues and decided on the Carousel.”

On the banks of Albert Park Lake, this venue is popular for its views of Melbourne’s city skyline.

“The Carousel was adaptable to the style of wedding we wanted – the venue can be configured to suit your needs – and catering to 200 guests was not a problem.”

Over seven months leading up to the wedding, Nicole and Lazaros met with Marie, Sarah and the team weekly. “They dealt with all the suppliers and stayed within our budget. They handled the lot.”

Marie and Sarah were there as Nicole walked down the aisle of St. Catherine’s Greek Orthodox Church in East Malvern and beyond.

“The Style Co. ensured that everything ran smoothly through out the day, right down to when the band played and timing for food service”, says Lazaros.

Lazaros says that if he could wind back the clock he would have preferred a summer wedding, so as to make the most of warm outdoor weather. Nicole disagrees; “I loved every moment of our wedding, day it was perfect,” she says.

“We could not have achieved the outcomes we aimed for without an event planner. We came up with the concept, and Marie and Sarah translated our ideas into reality. We got exactly what we wanted with great value for money”, adds Lazaros.

“We had an amazing wedding. It wasn’t entirely stress-free, but it was as stress-free as a wedding can be,” he says.
