Hi there, thanks for stopping by.
My name is Marie-Claire and I am the Creative Director and Lead Stylist at Marie-Claire Designs. Together with my devoted husband Keenan and my two young daughters, we’ve been a part of the Bundaleer Family for quite some time.
There we are enjoying our first dance as Newlyweds on our wedding day at none other than Bundaleer (Best Day Ever). As wedded alumni, we can absolutely relate to the connection you and your partner have with Bundaleer. Our passion is to present you with something beautiful to enjoy on your wedding day so that you’re free to spend time with loved ones on and around your big day. This is important to us, allowing each of you to enjoy time together with family and friends during this beautiful, busy and emotional occasion.
Whether you choose to mix and match styling pieces to create your own look, or to order a complete package… One thing is for sure – these items are made with the heart and soul of your Bundaleer wedding in mind. We’ve developed pieces for brilliant photo-opportunities, for guest comfort and enjoyment and to frame or enhance the important moments of your day. All of our designs work beautifully amongst the amazing, natural backdrop that you’ve chosen to be married amongst. Did you know that Bundaleer is an Aboriginal word that literally means ‘among the trees’? Pretty fitting if you ask me.
With a background in set-design, working on film and theatre sets, a scholarship opportunity took me to Las Angeles, California where I completed an Associate of Fine Arts and spent the better half of 18 months studying, presenting performances and hoping to run into Jennifer Lawrence and become best friends. Alas, our paths never crossed but I did go bowling next to Ashton Kutcher one night…
After graduating, on the back-lots of Warner Brother Studios, I bid farewell to LA and returned home to Brisbane with an abundance of styling and design know-how and a newfound love for floral design, event styling and Starbucks. My floral training is local at the Brisbane Flower School, where teachers speak of their time designing flowers for Queen Elizabeth.
Our team also consists of Clare and Amy who together have a wide range of industry proficiency. Their experience ranges from wedding-hospitality to fashion-events and now, flowers and styled photoshoots.
Styling life as a wife and Mum of two
In recent years, we have welcomed our daughters Riley & Helena into our Family and we’ve found that having little ones in tow at Bundaleer brings so many smiles to so many faces, so I try to include them as much as I can. Our girls have grown up alongside the amazing staff at Bundaleer and Marie-Claire Designs, so it’s very much an extended-family.
When my husband isn’t half way up a tree helping me hang draping (bless him) he is a busy Civil Engineer and an avid soccer fan. If we’re not styling weddings we’re usually out and about exploring Brisbane in toddler friendly ways like riding on the City Cat, tricycling around quiet streets and pathways or meeting for playdates in the park.
If you see us at Bundaleer while you’re there, come and say hello. We would love to meet you and your “I-Do-Crew” and see you through what will certainly be your Best Day Ever.
