Kate + Mat Circa, The Deck
Kate and Mat are the kind of couple that make you believe in love. The forever kind of love. You know, the lets-do-the-dishes-together kind of love. They’re super chilled human beings and every single meeting felt simple, easy and fun. We knew straight away that that was the kind of experience we wanted their family and friends to feel; a relaxed, intimate and fun day filled with world-class hugs, bad dance moves, cocktails, yummy food and chocolate… so much chocolate!
When Kate squealed with excitement as she walked in the doors of The Deck at Circa – we knew we’d done our job. High fives all round!!… Then she took a breath, and walked the the aisle.
Tears welled in our eyes as we watched on from behind the screens… it was only 4 years before that we watched Kate’s sister Bec do the same.
The Deck at Circa was the perfect location for the celebrations. Guests were welcomed with oversized ‘K & M’ letters floating upright in the pool before making their way to the deck. The ‘I-Dos’ were romantically framed by a custom arch which was adorned with an abundance of Mock Orange, Hydrangea, Lisianthus, Garden Roses, Phalaenopsis Orchids and lush greenery.
The success of any cocktail party involves a seriously cool bar. Kate & Mat’s circular pressed metal bar was just that, serious and cool, it ensured drinks were flowing all night long. At 10 pm the chocolate station opened up and guests worked off their sugar high until the wee hours of the morning!
A big thank you to the beautiful Kate & Mat, for trusting us implicitly and flowing with our creative rhythm.

Once we discovered that Nadia and Jimmy were engaged in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, we knew we had to recreate a ‘getaway’ experience for their guests. It seemed so fitting given Nadia & Jimmy’s relaxed and down to earth nature.
This is what our team have designed for their day:
The ceremony, a classic elegant feel with a neutral colour palette that sat harmoniously against the ripe green vines at BAIE Wines.
Post ceremony, it’s time to grab a drink and mingle! The Style Co team created a relaxed lounge setting under the Peppercorn tree fitted out with its own cocktail bar and brightly coloured blooms, the perfect setting for guests be treated to refreshing Mint & Lychee Coolers and Pina Coladas served by the oh-so-cool Tommy Collins crew, dressed in rolled up cinos and open collared shirts.
The guests were then ushered to the marquee for dinner. A glam resort feel with sea views to match.
The guests were welcomed into a clear marquee with a stunning roof installation created by The Style Co.’s florists; an unstructured mass of delicate foliage and white seasonal flowers cascaded down and complimented the three long tables set for their inner circle of family and friends.
The Style Co. florists used 450 bunches of green foliage, over 980 bunches of flowers including Hydrangrea, David Austin roses, Lisianthus, Amy Lou roses, and over 200 stems of Phalaenopsis orchids.
Nadia and Jimmy had their first dance on the open air dance floor under the stars and strung lights. Resort style lounges and cocktail tables offered guests a comfortable seat and a place to rest their drinks as they danced. No wedding in complete without a fully stocked outdoor bar decked out with more gorgeous floral arrangements.
We calculated The Style Co. planning, design and floral team would have clocked over 900 hours of planning, designing, prepping, floral arranging, setting up and packing down by the end of the wedding.
It was epic, and definitely one of our favourite weddings we’ve ever created.
