Behind The Brand
What was the spark for George and Smee? Where did your story begin?
The George & Smee story began five years ago, when George and Katie met and instantly struck a creative connection. Both coming from creative backgrounds and frustrated with the lack of unique hire items and furniture in the Australian market for events, they launched George & Smee as a hire company and outlet for their creative vision.
The company soon grew organically into a styling service, and later began incorporating botanical installations and florals. The duo quickly gained a reputation for flawlessly combining exceptional design capability with the highest standards of service, and the team grew again, taking on florists, designers and stylists to create the holistic event planning and styling service that is now George & Smee.
How would you describe your style when it comes to your products and services?
We are known for our warm and friendly service. We understand the often-overwhelming nature of planning a wedding and are here as a sympathetic sounding boards, coffee makers and advice-givers, inviting each of our brides into the studio to meet the team and get to know us.
Our artisan hire products and furniture items are sourced with the upmost care, each beautiful and of the highest quality from around the globe. This is our bread and butter: beautiful, stylish products that we curate to transform spaces into unforgettable celebrations. We wouldn’t call ourselves trend-led (trend setters, perhaps!), our style focuses more on timeless beauty, and inspiring design.
What elements of a wedding do you help with?
We offer floristry, styling, planning, lighting and bespoke building services. Put simply, we do everything, transforming spaces into statement-making moments, from the concept to the final details of the table.
We’re proud of the comprehensive support we offer, acting as a single sounding board and advocating for our clients every step of the way.
What advice would you give couples when deciding on a theme or style for their wedding?
Your wedding should be an authentic representation of who you are as a couple. Trends come and go but considered, personal design is always beautiful. If you’re feeling lost when it comes to a theme, think in terms of your story and your love, choosing colours, shapes and textures that you’re drawn to and feel like you.
Saying that, there is a lot to consider when planning & executing your big day – often an overwhelming amount – so let our experienced team sweat the details and come up with something simply stunning, so you can enjoy the day.
