Just My Type} Blush & Ivory Wedding Stationery Suite

It’s here! I finally get to share this gorgeous ivory and blush wedding stationery suite with you guys. Watercoloured roses in vintage hues give this kraft paper and ivory wedding suite a whimsical romantic vibe. The bride and groom were married on his parents stud farm, with their alfresco reception dinner served at long tables on the homestead lawn. The blush and mint colour scheme pairs perfectly with the kraft paper envelopes (how darling is the floral wreath?) and name tags. I just love how printing in colour onto kraft paper enhances the vintage feel!

A big thank you to the happily married couple, Margaux and Simms. You were an absolute pleasure to work with!

Just My Type} 10,000 pins on Pinterest!

Oh my goodness, I can’t quite believe it – last week I pinned my 10 thousandth pin on Pinterest! I’m a wee bit unsure as to whether this is a good thing… Or a borderline obsession! Pinterest is a wonderful tool and I recommend it to all my clients to help them get going with discovering the style they are after, and finding ideas and inspiration for their big day. Did you know you can make secret boards? They are great if you want to keep your wedding gown style a surprise! So, let’s go with the positive and celebrate this ‘digital visual collecting’ milestone. Cheers to 10,000 pins – here’s my top 10 fave from todays lunchtime session, feast your eyes x

Just My Type} Navy & Blush Wedding Stationery Suite

Happy Thursday beautiful people!

The sun is shining and the sky is blue here in Hamilton, Waikato today. Nothing like clear skies to lift your spirits and give you a boost of energy! I’m also bubbling over with excitement to share this new stationery suite here with you all. This crazy-in-love couple had their big day at the luxury wedding venue Sarnia Park, in Cambridge this May. The bride Sarah, is originally from across the seas in the UK, and managed to combine a trip home to visit family with the ultimate bridesmaid gown shopping spree – sigh! Sarah and Nick filled their day with personal vintage touches, like flower filled 1950′s glass coke bottles discovered on their farm, and sweet custom bunting strung up with twine.

Have a squizz at the suite below, I just love the manilla place name tags with their guests meal choice on them!

Just My Type} Navy and Gold Wedding Stationery Suite

Well, hello there lovelies. Apologies for going quiet over here on Just My Type for the last few months, all is back on track now though and I can’t wait to share with you next month my exciting explanation for this absence…! So on that rather mysterious note, I’m going to kick-off my return to blogging with this gorgeous wedding stationery suite. This wee gem is a project that was one of my very first wedding stationery suites. The bride and groom married on a hot January day in picturesque Taupo this year, and were based overseas in London at the time of design. Across the oceans we successfully put together this classic invitation suite with a modern chevron twist.

Just My Type} Handmade kraft paper signs

There’s just something about handmade kraft paper signs! Especially when done in white and with wreaths. I had the pleasure of creating these two for the super lovely Laura and James wedding last year, and I’m looking forward to creating some for our own wedding next month. The list of things to make for our nuptials seems to be growing longer every day… I just keep finding so many creative and inspiring ideas!
