Original wedding gift

This weekend we got back our first framed wedding portrait. And it looks fantastic.

Our lovely friends Ana and Greg gave us a voucher for our wedding from On Stone. We uploaded one of our favourite photos taken by Jill Andrews Photography to the website. From here they printed the image on stone, put a wooden frame around it and voilĂ , an amazing, unique way to present a moment from our Big Day. It looks so good sitting on our mantlepiece.

Tamara + Mike

I have just returned from New Zealand after two weeks of weddings. Amazing. Best excuse to go home for a holiday if I ever heard one. One was my beautiful best friend Tamara and her now-husband Mike's big day.

I had the honour of being Tamara's matron of honour as well as designing their wedding stationery. Tamara is a curator at Sanderson Contemporary Art Gallery in Auckland and art is a big part of her life. Amazing works cover the walls of her and Mike's home and she wanted to include this in their invites. Since high school she has been obsessed with the Renaissance, so it was fitting to have two paintings from the era as the main feature. The design of the invites continued through with the rest of the stationery.

The day was a true tribute to the happy couple. Tamara who is mad on fashion had not only one fabulous dress, but two!!! And Mike who is a musician had ensured the day was filled with music which included 4 different bands playing throughout the day. The favours were these cute ceramic ornaments (see top right in the photo above) which Tamara had been collecting over the last 12 months. Mine was a little lamb. Love it.

I wish Tamara + Mike all the happiness in the world and look forward to the next chapter of their life together.
