We Love…. Elephants

These beautiful majestic creatures are the true kings of the jungle. What do elephants have to do with weddings? Ganesh, one of the Hindu Gods, is in the form of an elephant and is the Lord of success, wisdom, prosperity and knowledge – wonderful qualities to wish for in the years ahead. And who could not love an elephant with their lumbering stride, inquisitive trunk and their close family bonds? They’re mighty cute too – just remember those elephant babies born at Aussie zoos lately!

We Love……Parasols

There is something quite genteel and refined about the thought of a parasol! Whether it is as an accessory that you use as a starting point for a colour scheme for your wedding, or provide them to shade your guests from the hot summer sun, a parasol can be a sweet addition to your wedding scheme.

We Love……..Letterpress

In the creative world of wedding invitations, letterpress stands out as being just so darned elegant and ‘olde worlde’. Yet it can look as modern as tomorrow or as vintage as yesterday. Here are a few examples to whet your appetite for this old craft.
