We design and print bespoke wedding stationery that is hand-crafted just for you and features original illustrations. Every invitation or stationery suite is unique and we offer a wide range of print finishes, including screen print and letterpress, and optional extras to make the end product even more special. We want to help your imagination come to life and create something exciting that fits in perfectly with your ideas for how your wedding day should look. A bespoke option is the chance to create something unique and wonderful that your guests will never have seen before, and that you will treasure long after the day itself.
As a freelance illustrator I have a wide variety of commissions, but a lot of the most creative and enjoyable work I have undertaken has been with couples, designing for their weddings. I specialise in stationery that highlights places or themes that are really special to the couple, for example bespoke illustrations of where they have met, fell in love, gotten engaged, or are to be married. I often like to bring details of the venue or more general design for the day into the invites so that guests are excited and intrigued in advance of the day. We are a small business and can only take a certain number of wedding commissions per year, to ensure that we can devote our full attention to each couple we work with.
Over the past few years we have created everything from hand-printed and hand folded paper aeroplane invitations, to table plans that featured screen-printed illustrations of parts of New Zealand that were really special to the couple, through to elegant gold foil invitations with a 1920's theme and a nod to the bride's Irish heritage.
We have a strong commitment to the environment and wherever possible use recycled paper and card, waterbased inks and locally sourced materials.
