Ashliegh and James' Save The Dates

Ashleigh and James are this incredible and relaxed couple who have decided to take on Mary&Gabrielle to design and coordinate their wedding in March. We are extremely excited to be such a big part of what will be an amazing day in the sun of the beautiful botanic gardens. Mary and I have been putting our heads together and have come up with some fun ideas that will truly reflect the couple and the feel of what they envision their day to be. Here are their Save the Date cards we did just under a month ago and we cant wait to carry on this theme through to the rest of the stationery and through to the details in their wedding. Stay tuned, this will be one wedding you wont be able to look past!
Sorry for the poor images, we will eventually have some professional photos of all the stationery.

Oh Baby!

We're very excited to announce that Sonia delivered her beautiful & healthy baby girl Holly on the morning of Tuesday 22nd of June! To celebrate Holly's 1st week we thought we'd share images of the delicious desserts evening that was held a few weeks back in honour of the lovely Mother-to-be.

While it was important for guests to enjoy the feast for the senses, it was most important that the very expectant Mum-to-be couldn't be more comfortable and relaxed, so a cosy lounge setting adjacent the desserts was definitely order of the evening for seating arrangements and the custom themed bunting that flanked the lounge suites ensured a casual & fun, but refined atmosphere. The bunting & the balloon canopy that greeted guests as they entered the front reception hall were some of our favourite decorative DIY elements that announced 'celebration' and contributed to the sense of occasion.
Absolutely stunning, seasonal pink & red themed floral arrangements created by Poppies helped anchor the delicious home made desserts table perfectly and contributed a little lush luxe to the evening. We also chose to break with the strong fashion of ushering the desserts table to one side of the room to generate more communal space and instead chose specifically to make the table literally the centrepiece of the room to add a sense of grandure to a relatively small space & promote interaction among the deliberately limited guest list.
The evening couldn't have been sweeter, & neither could beautiful Holly... Congratulations Sonia & Chris! xoxo

Pretty Pretty things

I got so excited when I came across these invites by Erica from Thoughtful Day for Jenna and Jon. They are so fun and colourful and set the tone perfectly for the wedding day which you must check out here. That is something Mary and I feel strongly about with invitations, they are the first bit of the wedding your guests will see and it is so nice to get an invite that teases you a little about what the wedding will be like and also its nice to get an invite and think, 'this is so them'!
