Mel + Todd {real wedding}

As we launch into a brand new wedding season, I thought I would show you this gorgeous one from the end of the last season. It was in April in the Hawke's Bay, just as all the leaves were turning golden. This became a real inspiration for the styling of the wedding.

All the photos are by the amazing Meredith Lord Photography, the styling and stationery by The Blushing Teacup and the gorgeous flowers by Lushka.

Tina + Alistair {wedding invite + RSVP}

When a Scottish guy meets a Greek girl and decide to get married, it makes sense to incorporate both of these backgrounds in their wedding stationery.

Here is what I came up with for Tina and Al who have been an absolute pleasure to work with.

I received the most loveliest email back once they had them printed. It said:

"Stace they are the best thing we have ever seen!! We LOVE them"

It made my day!

These two tie the knot next weekend in Melbourne and I wish them all the best for their big day and their exciting future.


August {thank you card}

This little man is one of my favourite little people. With two very talented parents who love art and music, he is destined for great things. He might even be a skipping rope champion. Love him so much!!

Here is what I designed for his thank you cards.

He is a great model also.


Leanne + Glen {wedding invite}

It has been a loooooong time since my last blog. And I have been working on so many projects that I need to share. But thought I would put this one up first.

This was my first invite I have designed using white digital printing. Yeap you can actually do this these days. You can't even imagine my excitement when I discovered my favourite local printer Paper Studio at The Copy Company has one of these printers.

Here is the final piece. Perfect for a rustic farm wedding.

If you need any stationery for your next event, please get in touch.

Florence {Thank you}

This precious wee button is Florence. Isn't she just beautiful?! And I got to design her thank you cards. I also got to meet and have snuggles with her, while catching up with her fab parents. Highlight of my week.

If you want a unique thank you card to match your unique little one, get in touch.

Jess + Kyle {save the date}

The stationery wedding season has begun again. Woo hoo!!

I had the privilege of designing this gorgeous save the date for the lovely Jess + Kyle who are getting married in the Bay of Islands, NZ. I couldn't imagine a more magnificent location.

This save the date is a little insight to what I am sure is going to be a brilliant day.

Congratulations Jess + Kyle!! Enjoy the wedding planning.

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.
