luminare weddings by the style co.
The Style Co. is so lucky to be involved in a number of weddings at Luminaire, South Melbourne! We absolutely love what this venue can offer. No matter what the season is, Luminaire is the perfect location… it’s stylish, elegant and the city views are breathtaking!
If you have any questions or enquiries about having your function in Luminare, we would love to be involved in your event!
Carmen + Daniel Luminare, South Melbourne
Luminare was the venue of choice for our gorgeous couple, Carmen and Daniel, and the perfect backdrop for this fun urban design.
Carmen and Daniel both loved colour along with foliage and flowers so this was the perfect opportunity to do something outside the traditional wedding box – needless to say our excitement levels were at an all time high!
In true Melbourne fashion the clouds opened up so the wet weather plan was called into action. This meant the ceremony was held on the retro black and white dance floor which added a quirky layer to the ceremony backdrop. Our couple were framed by two concrete rendered pillars that were adorned with feature arrangements of tropical foliage, spanish moss, anthuriums, and red roses popping against white phalaenopsis orchids. Wild tropical gardens grew from the base of the pillars with neon strip lighting which was turned on when the gardens became part of the photobooth backdrop.
The tablescape design focused on the layering of textures so white linen table cloths and grey linen napkins were dressed with concrete risers with a gold leaf detailing, nestled in amongst the structural floral centrepieces. The personalised menu’s had a textured paint effect which we carried through all the signage on the day. A feature tropical install above the bridal table was the finishing touch and framed the large dining area perfectly.
A big thank you to Carmen and Daniel who politely said ‘no thank you’ to white and green and ‘hell yes’ to colour! The end result was full of impact, warmth and fun, all the things a great wedding must have.

Chantelle + Renae Surprise Proposal
We get to do some pretty special things with some pretty amazing people and have done so since The Style Co. was born over 7 years ago. This particular occasion was exactly that… pretty special for a couple of pretty amazing humans.
Chantelle called us earlier this year and let us in on her secret to propose to her love, Renae. She wanted it to be perfect, she had a very cool plan and every nervous/elated/teary moment was going to be captured by legends Erin and Tara… there were goose bumps – we were in!
So on a perfect Summer night, on one of the best rooftops in Melbourne (thanks Luminare), while Tobi music filled the air with sweet sweet tunes, we created a candle-filled garden oasis and witnessed a stunning Renae say YES!!
Congratulations Chantelle and Renae!! What a beautiful thing to be part of, we couldn’t be happier for the both of you! 😘😘
Zoë + Emilio Luminare, South Melbourne
The timeless love story of our achingly cool couple Zoë and Emilio was perfectly summed up when we asked them how they met…. ‘ Zoë worked at the pub. Emilio drank at the pub.’ We thought that response, just like them, was brilliant and needed to be up in lights – pronto!
Cut to their Big Day and we were bringing all the sexy, moody vibes necessary for a night of revelry. Turn up the audio on this blog post peeps, it’s all about the sensory experience, starting with the eerie music box tune playing in the elevator up to South Melbourne’s prized rooftop venue, Luminare.
Overgrown greenery and red rose bushes gathered wildly above the dance floor, where decrepit chandeliers tilted and flickered. The table design oozed romance with decadent gold leafing on vases that were overflowing with red roses and discarded petals strewn over the tables.
And then there was that deck, home of the feature bar and tropically adorned lounge pods that were the perfect haven away from the busy dance floor. Guests grabbed a cocktail, melted into the comfy velvet sofas and shared the city views with Mr. Flamingo and Co.
Flick + Josh Luminare, South Melbourne
When we first met this gorgeous couple we were blown away by how much sweetness can be jam packed into one single human being. Honestly Flick (as she’s is affectionately known by friends) is unquestionably the loveliest human to grace this universe…….and then there’s Josh. Oh Josh, your genius would be alarming if it wasn’t so damn consistent! The wit, sarcasm and charm that oozed from Josh in every meeting/email/phonecall was undeniable evidence of his cool cat status. It was obvious to us early on that the next 12 months working with these guys was going to be an absolute hoot and boy-oh-boy was it ever!
After getting to know Flick and Josh it was easy to understand that they wanted a day that was colourful, fun and elegant. Pre dinner drinks were served on Luminare’s beautiful deck from our custom whisky bar and then guests had the option to take in the stunning city views whilst lounging underneath one of the canopies trailing with ivy and asparagus fern.Inside the dining room was filled with an abundance of colour. The gorgeous arrangements were colour blocked using hydrangea, dahlias, celosia, david austin and garden roses. The black cutlery gave the tables a modern look that complimented the edginess of the installation suspended above the bridal table and dance floor. Custom gold 3D cubes were the feature in the installation, pendant lights dropped through highlighting the overflowing oak, camelia, ivy and vibernum cascading down.
It was such an honour to be a part of Flick and Josh’s Big Day. The whole experience was a constant reminder of why we love what we do especially in those moments when you realise clients have become friends or when your cool cat groom has a ‘sock change’ just cause he wants to. Congratulations on entering The Style Co. hall of fame.
