Colour inspiration {winter berry}

As the weather is starting to get a bit cooler we at The Blushing Teacup are obsessing over yummy shades of velvety reds, boysenberry, raspberry and deep purple fig. 

After a gorgeous summer of weddings and seeing lots of peach, apricot, soft coral and grey greens, it is nice to be inspired by some completely different palettes.

Ana + Greg {real wedding}

I am so excited to finally be able to put the photos up of this amazing wedding. My two very good friends Ana + Greg tied the knot in January this year at Woollaston Estates near Nelson. The photos are by the very clever Paul Tatterson Photography and the wedding stationery by The Blushing Teacup.

This wedding was pretty exceptional. The venue was stunning,  the ceremony was beautiful, the food was fabulous, the speeches were sensational. But the best part if the whole day was the DANCING! Ana is Macedonian and she wanted that incorporated into the day. The table numbers were in Macedonian, there was shots of Rakia (the national drink of Macedonia) on the tables, and then ... a Macedonian band all the way from Sydney Australia!! It. Was. The. Most. Fun. Ever! Oh how we danced.

Check out the photos, you can see from them just what a fantastic day it was.

Matilda {thank you}

How gorgeous is this little face!!

I had the pleasure of meeting little Matilda a month ago when her and her lovely parents come to stay. She is just a whole bunch of cuteness.

So a cute thank you card it had to be.

Mel + Todd {wedding invite}

I have been a little slack at getting this one on the blog. Melissa + Todd are getting married in one week!! I have loved working with this bride and groom on all the little details of their wedding. It's going to be all sorts of amazing. Will definitely be sharing some of the photos afterwards.

I loved how this invite incorporated all the details in one concertina format.

Their sweet little logo was taken from their Save the date and will be incorporated into a few bits and pieces on the day.

Congratulations Mel + Todd, looking forward to celebrating with you both next week!!

If you are getting married soon and want a bespoke stationery design for your big day, please get in touch.

Rachel + Chris {Save the Date}

Now guys, this is a love story in a half!!

I met with Rachel for a champagne at Cumulus Up in Melbourne just before I left to discuss the stationery for her wedding. These two need to write a novel about how they got together. I actually almost teared up when she was telling me!! But long story short ...

Chris and Rachel had known each other for years before they realised that they were meant for each other. They met through Rachel's brother, moved to separate countries, decided to go on an overseas trip together, realised they had feelings for each other, then finally Chris moved to Melbourne and the rest is history.

Their first official date was in the Melbourne Botanical Gardens, so it seemed fitting to have the wedding there too. Chris and Rachel wanted a Save the Date they could send to their friends and family that would be travelling for the wedding. They wanted the design to reflect the gardens, incorporate their silhouettes and also the birds that were fluttering around when Chris proposed.

They inserted an info sheet in with the Save the Date magnet letting people know the best places to stay in Melbourne.

Rachel is the most organised bride I have ever met!! She has already chosen her dress, what the bridesmaids are wearing, the flowers, the celebrant and I think music is pretty sorted too. And it's a year away!!

Cannot wait to start designing the rest of the stationery suite for Chris and Rachel's big day.
