The Style Co
Sez + Dam Gather + Tailor
If you can’t feel your feet the next morning you know it was a pretty epic party! E.P.I.C!
So let’s go back… to not too long ago when we celebrated this one special day with two very special humans.. and partied like never before! One of the humans in particular, you may know…
She’s my partner in crime in this little business we’ve built called The Style Co. and someone who more than anyone I had hoped would find the love of her life. After all, our jobs are to create for our couples, the backdrop for the first day of the rest of their lives and folks, this little lady, does it with such incredible passion, it’s no wonder our fridge (and drawers) are filled with such moving thank you notes.
Of course I’m talking about our very own Sarah (Sez) and she’s made one very dapper Damien (Dam) a bona fide happy little vegemite.
The love story can only be described as a classic Rom-com! Although we weren’t there to witness the awkward playground ‘friendship’ in primary and high school, we could see why this friendship had stood decades and grew into a love that will continue (as the hashtag says)… forevs!
Their friendship is one constant competition about who’s funnier than who (we still can’t decide) and Dam’s unparalleled OCD-ness and love for shiny fast machines somehow worked perfectly with Sez’s organised chaos, love for old industrial treasures and slow daytime bevvies amongst good company.
As Sez said in her speech, she’s been to a few weddings in her time… but this was the one.
The one where she would be our client, the one where our hand picked team would be the architects and the one to be etched into her heart (and ours) forever. It was the one she had been composing on her Pinterest board all these years without even knowing it.
So my friends, I have never been prouder to show you the wedding that will definitely be the most memorable in The Style Co. history books for me and for all the right reasons.
wait! one more message to Sez… you bloody drive me up the wall (I’m sure it’s mutual) but how can we not forget every ounce of craziness we’ve been up to over the years.. now it’s up to Dam to top it. (Dam good luck) Big big love to you both, enjoy the lifetime ahead of love, comedic impressions, peanut-butter-salted-caramel everything and so much fin, fin finning!
I can’t forget the dream team who helped make this day so amazing….. here they are

Maria + Chris circa, the prince
Our gorgeous couple, Maria and Chris wanted their intimate celebration to be warm and welcoming whilst maintaining an air of elegance. A rich colour palette of burgundy, emerald and gold certainly ensured we delivered on their brief.
The stunning Deck at Circa was the perfect backdrop for their big day with the ceremony taking place underneath the most heavenly floral chandelier and their dearest family and friends surrounding them in a semi circle.
The lush florals continued into the dining room where our winter favourites, cymbidium orchids, magnolia and calla lillies spilled across the length of the tables. The drama of these centrepieces combined with the luxurious marble trays, gold cutlery, charcoal linen and custom designed menus made for the most memorable experience for guests.
One of our favourite designs for the season, it oozes everything we love about winter weddings. Big hugs to Maria and Chris for being so adorable, we had a ball working with you!

Laura + Ben The Triffid, Brisbane QLD
Laura and Ben’s big day was one achingly cool celebration. Their design brief came directly from brief heaven; take two iconic Brisbane venues (neither traditional wedding spaces) pair that with a Pinterest board that’s bursting with travel, music, design inspo (not a single wedding reference) then add two chilled human beings who trust what you do and are keen to push the boundaries – winning!
Powerhouse’s stunning sky high concrete walls were the perfect backdrop for the ceremony. Crisp white bentwood chairs were placed in a semi circle to create an intimate setting. We lined the aisle with a thick runner of lush foliage and pampas grass that continued up into an asymmetrical free standing frame.
Laura and Ben’s local live music venue, The Triffid was completely transformed for the evening. On arrival guests were invited to grab a keepsake from the fully stocked merch stand complete with L + B mugs, t-shirts, posters and caps!
The feature welcome sign was a free standing blush rendered wall with brushed copper laser cut letters that extended out through the wild greenery.
A mix of grey concrete and blush bricks were layered on the guest tables with moody, hand painted florals dripping over, black dinner candles added a hint of romance.
In true ‘muso’ spirit, we knew the stage design had to be a feature. Custom designed artwork inspired by Laura’s many pins of abstract, dripping paint designs were printed on three 5m long canvas banners and were the backdrop to the neon centrepiece that read ‘You Me Oui’. We then framed this massive stage with two epic walls of wild foliage and branches.
Hats off to Laura and Ben who didn’t let the distance between Brisbane and Melbourne get in the way of our love affair. We love our road trips and this one will forever be one of our faves!
