When Kay contacted me to create her wedding invite and shared her vision of her big day, I couldn’t help not to fall in love with her rustic, boho and vintage wedding.
The venue was set up in a barn of Sydney countryside near the river, giving a romantic countryside atmosphere for her wedding. We talked about her choice of bold, warm and autumn floral tone; orange, terracota, wine paired with greenery. Overall she wanted the invite to look rustic, earthy tones, organic, vintage feel with quirky informal wordings. We opted for kraft paper and play around with typography and using tongue and cheek wording for her suite.
The suite was printed on ivory card and kraft envelope. I hand drawn some iconic illustrations for a wedding programme card. I incorporated her choice of floral, wattle- the Australian national flower, for her custom stamp. I printed on vinyl sticker to seal her kraft envelope.
The style also carried throughout her wedding day. Using a kraft paper for wedding stationery such as place cards and menu. For the signage, I made a welcome banner with the same font we’re using paired with script lettering for the invite and wattle illustration on the top of signage. On the day, it was printed on a canvas cloth and hang up with a piece of wood.

When designing a bridesmaid gift, there are several things I take into an account. I always spend time to listen the bride- asking her vision, personality, wedding style to get some backgrounds and link it up together. Most of wedding parties don’t have a particular theme such as this recent Lovebirdstories project I was handling. The bride just simply asked to incorporate something blue into her bridesmaid gift box. Here are some highlights and tips I think it’s important to create a thoughtful curated bridesmaid gift box for your favourite ladies.
One of DIYs I made for our wedding is this welcome wedding signage. I saw a picture of a long banner hanging on the tree at the wedding entrance and I thought it’s quite simple to make for our big day. It turned out to be a quite fun project together we spent during our wedding preparation.
I actually didn’t have any plan to do a maternity shoot, it just happened my friend who is a photographer was around in the town and it was a beautiful cherry blossom period in Paris, so we went to the park. It was so hard not to take a photograph really…. really hard to resist those pretty blooms.
Soft hues and vellum seem to be hitting the major trend of wedding invitations this year. Combining them together creates a beautifully romantic timeless look. When a couple asked me to design their custom wedding invite suite with this combo- I was so thrilled!
