stylised 10


Conceived from the passion of founders Michael and Charlene for all things events, Stylised is a reflection of their dedication to bringing Brisbane events and planning to the extraordinary heights of those in overseas cities like Las Vegas, New York and Vancouver.

Lovers of all things pretty, the creatives behind Stylised travel near and far (and sometimes across oceans) to create memorable, lust-worthy visual treats for you and your guests. Not believing in the assembly line, cookie cutter type of celebrations, they work to make your heart beat faster, for your guests to be talking about your event for years to come and for your day to be relived with excitement and fond memories.

Creating most elements in-house. Stylised tailor bespoke packages for each and every client to suit both their vision and their budget. Offering services like, planning, styling, table-scape design, speciality installations, ceremony design, blooms, centrepieces, decor…there is nothing that they can’t do. Taking only a small number of weddings and events per week, they have a strong belief in quality over quantity, knowing that each and every space should be a reflection of what is quintessentially you.

With a team that includes a talented group of floral artisans, stylists, imagineers, graphic designers, speciality artists and fabricators, their sole aim is to make you event spectacular.

They are the early birds, the night owls, the bride’s best friend and there is almost nothing that this fanastic business can not do.

Be sure to come and meet the Stylised team at our next Brisbane Wedding Festival held on January 30th, 2016. Being hosted by the Brisbane Racing Club, it’s the perfect setting to see their creations in the flesh.
