Ana + Greg {wedding invite}

I am very, very excited to finally blog about this special invite. It has been a long time in the making, but it's finally here!!

After a secret engagement in Japan and then a surprise engagement party (AKA Ana's 30th Birthday), this couple set their date for January 2015 in beautiful Nelson, New Zealand.

I feel very honoured to be a part of the styling of this wedding and cannot wait to celebrate their big day with them! Bring on January!

This is how it arrived.

Ana and Greg are some of the styliest peeps I know and really appreciate clean, crisp design. This is where I got the inspiration for the geometric pattern. Ana's love of stripes also had a helping hand. I can't wait to adapt the design to all the different elements of the day. Watch this space!

Ana is Macedonian so the swing tags have both the Macedonian and English names of all the guests. And this is what it looks like unfolded. Notice the tiny portrait of their Miniature Schnauzer Ralph in the bottom right hand corner. Too cute.

Kate + Evan's big day

The Blushing Teacups first 'real wedding' post!! Hip hip hooray!!

This gorgeous wedding took place in Kate + Evans most favourite Australian spot, Cape Bridgewater. It's kind of in the middle of nowhere on the coast near the Victorian and South Australian border. These two are the most creative DIYers I know. All the details of the wedding was made by them (with a little help from friends and family). They even did the catering!

I designed the invite for this lovely couple in the lead up to their big day. It featured their favourite tree which they then got portraits taken in amongst it's wild branches. I am not even going to try and attempt to describe just how beautiful this wedding is, I will let you see for yourself.


A huge Thank you to Kate + Evan for sharing these amazing photos with us. We would love to make this a regular thing, so if you are a bride or vendor that would like to share your photos, please get in touch
