brisbane weddings by The Style Co.
Martinique + Stephen The Joinery, Brisbane
Starting the design process with our clients always begins with the completion of a pretty awesome (well we think so anyway) questionnaire and a collection of inspiration images to get to know our couple’s personalities and style.
Martinique + Stephen’s story was anything but ordinary and with over 1,500 (wowza!) inspiration images of modern architecture, travel pics, fashion snaps, flowers galore and the odd RnB/Beyonce/Jay Z reference we knew we had something juicy to sink our teeth into!
We love creating our magic interstate and this time we had only eyes for Brisbane.
The look for the ceremony was modern and structural yet romantic, held at The Queensland State Library. A dramatic black carpet runner lead to florals of deep burgundy and blush tones pouring over a series of modern black mirrored plinths.
Post ceremony dinner and dancing awaited guests at The Joinery where we shook things up a little with a bold colour palette of blush, fushia, magenta, deep red, black and gold! Sharp, modern finishes of mirror and lighting installations set the tone whilst some seriously epic florals adorned the tables.
Personality is key in our designs so knowing that we had some rnb loverrrrs on our hands we couldn’t help but add a little Biggie Smalls flavour to the mix! A custom “It was all a dream” neon was designed to layer over a ‘smashed mirror’ effect creating some serious attitude behind the bar!
An installation of linear light beams floated throughout the dramatic industrial style ceiling, dripping down behind the dj where guests definitely got the P is for Party memo!
Martinique and Stephen thank you for letting our ideas run wild and letting us be a part of your special day, you were an absolute dream!

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!
