What is your most memorable wedding?
I recently worked on a bespoke design for a lovely bride and groom who married in Bali. I designed and hand illustrated the invitations to incorporate all things Balinese such as plants, temples and even turtles to really capture the theme of the wedding and showcase the beautiful things about Bali. I loved working on this design because I could tell how much Bali meant to the couple and let's just say Bali is now on my travel wish list after all my research!

What about your business are you most proud of?
I'm most proud of my In-house collections. I spent quality time on each of these designs to provide as many options for the bride-to-be as possible.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Plan as early as possible and buy a good diary. Being organised is key especially with wedding stationary. It's best to send your wedding invitations out as soon as you have all the relevant information to give your guests good time to book time off work, book accommodation or even save if its an overseas wedding.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I know I am probably being bias by saying this but I honestly have to say thats it's something my husband did for me on our wedding night. There is an ancient Japanese tradition where if a person folds 1000 paper cranes you will be granted a wish. On our wedding night I was given a blindfold and led into our room where there was 1000 cranes folded by my husband with a scroll telling me about my wish and the tradition. For anyone who would like to know the wish certainly came true (I like to believe it was because of this).
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Depending on location I love to meet with a bride and groom for a consultation. I think this is a great opportunity to get a feel for me as person/designer and a chance to get a up close look at a selection from our portfolio. If you aren't local an email consultation will take place instead. I work closely with couples once we start the design process to ensure you're happy with the designs throughout.
What is the most important piece of stationery for a wedding and why?
I personally think it's all so important but If I could only pick one it would definitely be the main wedding invitation. This is your way of letting your guests know all relevant information about your day without this your guests are none the wiser!
What is your best seller?
We have only recently launched our In-house collections and have already had great interest in these designs. Our bespoke design service is our most popular service as this gives the bride-to-be freedom on the design.
