Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Humorous, quirky, personality-filled, unique, cute
What about your business are you most proud of?
That everything is made from scratch and tailored completely to the couple's ideas and personality. And my wedding comics, just because they are so fun and different!
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Don't believe everything you see on Pinterest.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
(Depending on what the couple is inquiring about) - When a couple contacts me, I want to understand their vision for the wedding design and their vibe as a couple. I want to get to know their personality so that I can reflect this in my cartoons. Sometimes the artwork can be entirely digital, for the couple to use as they wish, and other times I play a bigger role in creating the finished product. It really is all down to the couple's ideas, requirements and budget.
What is the most important piece of stationery for a wedding and why?
The pen for signing the register, duh. (Too sarky?) No, seriously - the wedding invites of course! They are like a sneak peak taster for the big event - the first glimpse of the overall wedding day vibe!
What is your best seller?
Wedding comics! (The bride and groom's relationship story in comic-strip form)
How do you add romance to any wedding stationery you do?
I personally kiss every drawing I do. (Just kidding, that's gross).
