From humble beginings in 1998
Hi, my name is Christie Schilling, owner of “The Prop People”, a wedding and event styling specialist service to Maryborough, Fraser Island, Hervey Bay, Gympie, Bundaberg, and surrounding areas.
The Prop People commenced trading in February 1998 with a vision to provide couples living in country areas with fabulous décor that would fulfil the vision for their dream wedding. We have built and continue to build depth and diversity of decor from which our clients can choose. Beach Weddings have become a speciality of ours in the Wide Bay area.
We are proud of the fact that we have become the first choice when people consider quality and service. Our dedication to personal service has resulted in several awards, including 3rd place in Queensland for Styling and 1st place in Bride’s Choice Awards – Fraser Coast.
The fulfilment for me is that after an appointment my clients know the styling for their wedding is in hand, they need not be concerned with how the day will go and can look forward with excitement and anticipation.
I enjoy my work as do our staff and this sense of enjoyment is reflected from the initial appointment, continuing through the association we have with our clients and culminating in the happy relaxed way we go about setting up their very special day.
The Prop People has a beautiful private studio with a display of all the latest decorating trends and options, visit our studio to learn more about us. We love to work with and show our clients exactly what the end result will be by creating in house setups.
Over the past 20 years, we have gathered an impressive collection of unique and on-trend decor for both weddings and events. Our vast inventory allows us to create a look or theme desired by choosing various elements and styling them to our clients’ satisfaction.
What Our Clients Say
Christie went above and beyond time and time again to give us the day of our dreams. Her product was fantastic quality and her attention to detail was second to none. If you did it again, we'd book her in a heart beat!...
Christie went above and beyond her duty of service to make the planning of my interstate wedding a breeze. She is fantastic at what she does and I would hire her 100 times over. Out of all my vendors, she was the best by a mile...
The Prop People were amazing from our first meeting to the day of set up. Christie and her team made our dreams come true, somehow they pulled off the picture in our heads and turned it into a reality. Set up from the ceremony to the reception went off without a hitch, they are unobtrusive and had everything under control. Would absolutely recommend and rebook again.
Of all of the vendors that I worked with to pull together, our wedding Christie at The Prop People was far and away the best. She was friendly and professional, she listened to what we were after and I believe she was genuinely concerned about how our day went for us. I have not got a bad thing to say about Christie as ever interaction was professional. She responded quickly and was a huge help to me in the organisation of the wedding. I would not hesitate to recommend her services to anyone else that would like a beautiful wedding.
