Nic + Lazby Louisa Bailey
After Nicole and Laz’s first ever meeting the entire team let out a studio-wide exhale.
This stylish couple were persuasive without being pushy, honest without being offensive, inspiring without being artificial – the perfect fit for us and our creative rhythm. We all knew right from the beginning that this was going to be one of those projects that left a happy dent in the universe and we were excited!
The brief was to create something exquisitely beautiful whilst embracing a modern elegance using a neutral palette with hints of gold.
Lighting was particularly important to the couple, so we decided to make this a focal point. A large cluster of metallic geometric pendants projected intricate shadows over the dance floor and custom bar all night long.
The inspiration for the guest tables was to create something softer and romantic, juxtaposed with the edginess of the lighting installation. The tables alternated between hundreds of pillar candles scattered at varying heights and stunning luscious floral runners featuring imported peonies ( yeps in July – who does that!) and colombian roses.
It was no surprise that Nicole & Laz’s day was so memorable; their priority had always been to create something welcoming, comfortable and fun for each and every hand picked guest. The entire room was a reflector-beam of their amazing friendship and bona fide love. It was a privilege, a delight and the essence of The Style Co. to be a part of their day.

Masterchef Launch Party
We love a bit of a challenge and with 2 weeks lead time, we definitely had a masterchef challenge on our hands!
MasterChef 2013 Media Launch
Incorporate the different weeks featured in this year’s masterchef series – fast food week, barossa week, wild west week, kids week, italian week. All set up in the new Melbourne MasterChef kitchen
There have been a few masterchef launches in the past so we wanted to do things a little differently (as we do)… we decided to give each of the areas a modern spin…
We created a canopy of foliage and grapes and dropped custom Edison pendant lights from the greenery. Our signage was a custom lasercut wine bottle.
Wild West week
This was a smelly one! we washed and drilled hundreds of oyster shells and strung them to create a cool rustic seaside stand with clusters of drift wood and lobster baskets. Fish nets were the backdrop for our hand made ‘wild west’ sign made from rope.
A red and white striped food stand was the base for the delicious desserts made by the talented team at Burch and Purchese. Fluffy clouds hung above and feet were welcomed on the fluffy grass floor.
Working with the existing elements of the charcuterie room, a yellow dipped wooden canopy was custom made to hang fresh herbs and dried garlic and chillies. Bead rolls and sticks were spilling ouf of paper bags and guests were welcomed in to pick and choose their meats and cheeses.
Fast Food week
A hand drawn menu on chalk board was the backdrop for our new york inspired fast food stand. Custom stamps were made for our ‘masterchef doggy bags’ and could help themselves with the mini sauce bottles. Guest sat on galvanised stools and rested their cocktails on black oil drum bar tables.
The photo backdrop
This one was a hit! fruit and veges were colour blocked and housed in geometric timber boxes attached to a wall of greenery.
To top it all off we got to enjoy a rare night of eating and drinking and couldn’t help but squeeze in a picture with the judges!
Here are the fruits (and veges) of our labour! enjoy!
