Claire Elyse {baby announcement}

This little love is a very special bubba. She is my newest niece, Claire. Just seven weeks younger than my little Mabel we are looking forward to watching the two grow up together. I am sure they will be the bestest of friends. She has a older sister Lucy and an older brother Mitchell. Love them!

Olivia + Lawrence {save the date}

I enjoyed working with Olivia and Lawrence on this gorgeous save the date. They wanted a clean and classic look. So I found a beautiful calligraphy font and kept the design very subtle with a blush and grey colourway.

The holiday season is always a popular time to get engaged. If your left hand is suddenly a lot more sparklier and you need wedding stationery. Please get in touch, I would love to hear from you.

Caihlech + Rhys {save the date}

I love an engagement shoot because it means I get to use the beautiful images for the save the date design.

The pics from Caihlech + Rhys' shoot are great! Michael Schultz captured the moody grey skies on the old railroad bridge near Pandora Pond in Napier perfectly. You can see more of the shoot here. Look forward to seeing the wedding pics in April next year.

Do you want to let your guests know in advance when your big day will be? Get in touch if so.

Alice {thank you}

This gorgeous girl just turned ONE the other day!! So probably about time I put her Thank you card up on the blog. Alice and her lovely family had gotten a photoshoot when she was just a wee dot. There were so many goodies, so I wanted to use as many of these pics in her card.

Just welcomed a new one into your family? Why not get a bespoke thank you card to send out to your friends and family.

Mabel June {thank you card}

Our gorgeous girl is now SEVEN months old! The time has gone so quickly, yet when I look back so much has happened. We are loving every moment with her. She is so smiley and cute and we love her to bits!

We received so many generous gifts from friends and family. She is a very lucky little lady. I illustrated a few "when Mabel was a ..." to go on her Thank You cards.


From left to right: When Mabel was a florist, when Mabel was a Darcy the Caravan Bar server, when Mabel was a Crossfitter and when Mabel was KFC's number one fan. 

And here is the final card.

It is always a pleasure designing these cards. I love it so much. If you have a new addition and would like a bespoke design made, please get in touch.

Lizzie + Aaron {real wedding}

Back in January this gorgeous couple said 'I do' at Sacred Hill winery in Puketapu.

It was a stinking hot Hawke's Bay day. My favourite kind of weather. Lizzie was inspired by her glorious shoes and the burnt orange label of Sacred Hill for the colours. They wanted clean crisp modern styling to offset the rustic feel of the winery. I worked with Susanna Todd Flowers who created the most gorgeous florals.

Lizzie and Aaron got engaged in Italy and they wanted to include this in their day. They sipped in Aperol Spritz's straight after the ceremony, the surrounding olive trees gave a mediterranean vibe, their guests dined family styles with lots of amazing antipasti. The bride and groom wanted a relaxed party where their friends and family ate good food, drank amazing wine and had lots of fantastic laughs. And by the sounds of it they nailed it! 

And that dress. Sigh.

Keep scrolling to see the amazing work of Natalie McNally photography who captured the day. Styling by The Blushing Teacup.
