Sonya + Troy {wedding invite}

Blog posts have been very few and far between at The Blushing Teacup of late. That is because we welcomed a brand new teacup to our little family. Mabel June arrived at the end of March and the last five months have been spent getting to know our little girl. She is amazing.

Mabel six days old | Mabel five months old

I have managed to fit in a few wedding invite designs which has been a great creative outlet in my new role as a full time mum. Here is one of them. This wedding ceremony is going to be held on the brides (who happens to be one of my bestest friends) farm in the woolshed. With the reception at the local hall. I designed a simple monochrome design with the idea of it to be printed onto wood. Yeap you can do that!!


If you have an event coming up that you need stationery for, please get in touch.

Phillipa + John {invite, rsvp and extra info}

I LOVED designing this set of stationery for our good friends Phil + John. When Phil said they were having a TopKåta tent at their reception, I nearly fell off my chair with excitement!!

So this became the concept behind the design of the wedding stationery.

Phil had seen some invites that had a timeline on them and wanted it incorporated into the design. Was a great way to add in a bit more illustration.

I also really love the colours. The rich plum and deep purples are really different from anything I have designed lately.

Phil and Johns fabulous day was about a month ago now and I cannot wait to see the photos.

Jess + Kyle {invite}

Blogs have been a little few and far between of late. I have been working on heaps of gorgeous designs, and looking forward to sharing them with you.

Jess + Kyle are getting married in the stunning Bay of Islands in two weeks time! Unfortunately we can't go as we have a little one due to arrive any day. Lucky it is something that good that is keeping us from going. I designed Jess + Kyle's save the date a little while ago, and we kept with this look and feel for the rest of the stationery.

I have recently finished all the others bits and pieces that will be part of their big day. I cannot wait to share these with you after these two lovelies say "we do".

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.
