Yarra Valley wedding
Kay + Sean Stones of the Yarra Valley
Every time we drive down the stunning tree lined entrance of Stones of the Yarra Valley we get that feeling that something magical is about to happen, this spring day in September was no exception!
Our gorgeous couple Kay and Sean were based in Singapore, inviting all their guests to experience Melbourne and it’s surrounds for a very special 3 day experience. During the initial stages of design, Kay + Sean expressed their love for effortless simplistic design, Japanese influences, the great outdoors and of course each other! This got our creative team buzzing with excitement to bring something very special to Stones…
In true Style Co. fashion we loved the idea of designing two totally different but complimentary tablescapes.
The outer tables began with a soft base of natural white linen. We organically stacked shell limestone pieces down the centres of the tables with spring florals of poppies, roses, hellebores, anemones and wheat dancing throughout. The clean arc of the neutral wish bone chairs added that simplistic modern edge.
To offset the softness of the outer tables we left the inner tables exposed raw timber with heavier florals of roses, scabiosa, rununculus and dancing lady orchids bursting from both ceramic and resin vessels. Adding the lotus chair in white enabled the design to remain modern with an earthy edge. Each guest sat down to a personalised deckled edge menu printed on a beautiful cotton stock.
And of course, how could we go past an installation of gorgeous spring blossom branches suspended throughout the ceiling!
Thank you Kay + Sean for such an amazing experience with you both and for trusting us with your special time here in Melbourne with your nearest and dearest.
Natasha + Ciaron Coombe, Yarra Valley
Natasha + Ciaron warm our hearts with their infectiously cute and energetic style, which had us hooked at fuchsia florals and crushing throughout the entire creative process.
Every design detail was beautifully on point, from the bright + bold colours that filled Coombe, Yarra Valley, to the out-of-this-world macramé panel installation decorated with soft floral arrangements. Inside, vibrant shades of pink were injected into the reception space, bursting across swoon-worthy tablescapes and cascading from the ceiling in an effortlessly exquisite style.
We’re insanely stoked to have been a part of Natasha + Ciaron’s day, and can’t thank them enough for being wonderfully trusting and allowing us to work our favourite kind of magic – which wouldn’t be possible without our legendary crew.

vanessa + daniel zonzo, yarra valley
Zonzo set the spectacular scene for Vanessa & Daniel’s wildly romantic nuptials and Yarra Valley reception. The ceremony styling was simplistically refined to complement the delicate native splendour of the Yarra Glen region. Vows were exchanged in the winery’s unornamented barn, where raw hardwood textures accentuated the luscious green foliage and ivory floral installation that adorned the archway.
Inside, two rows of banquet style tables lined the room to create a playfully light atmosphere where pops of the bright and cheerful colour palette burst throughout the space. The tablescapes were decorated with relaxed floral arrangements that incorporated hues of coral, pink, burgundy and greenery to offset the neutral table settings and dark hardwood tones that surrounded the room. As an ode to their love of classic films, a light box inscribed with ‘You’re The One That I Want’ illuminated the dance floor and created a beautifully moody vibe, along with the cascading festoon lighting above.
The newlyweds treated guests to a few of their delectably adored things, including a champagne station (to ensure hydration we’re told), as well as a custom popcorn station completed with DYI flavouring varieties ranging from truffle and lavender, to smoked bacon *drooling intensifies*, packed perfectly in personalised take-away boxes. And to tickle the sweet tooth, their beautifully designed three-tier hundreds and thousands cake stole the spotlight (if only for a second), because a couple that eats treats together…stays together!
We’re thrilled Vanessa + Daniel trusted us to create this unforgettable moment in their love-story, and we thank them for being a super chill couple and making it a memorable occasion for all involved.
