Next to invitations, my next favourite thing to design are menus. I love how you can tie the whole theme of your wedding with one piece of stationery. And it also doesn't help that I love food and love to creep what's on other people's menus

So stoked to finally be able to share a few pieces from M+L's wedding at @adprestaurant . .

I love adding some contrasting colours to my wreaths to make them pop! In this case, I added a little dark and stormy blue and a touch of yellow to accent the green and pink theme of the wreath. What are some of your favourite go-tos? . .

It's been a busy week as I was getting a few wedding jobs out the door. Wishing my clients M+L all the love on their wedding day! Looking forward to the weekend as I work on some personal ideas. Have a great weekend friends!

I get excited every time I have a client who wants to add some loose florals to their wedding stationery because they're just so fun to paint!
One of the key tips in painting florals is to remember to use the negative space (or the white paper) to help define each petal and to help shape the overall bud. . .

Things are kicking into high gear as we're deep into peak wedding season! I spent the weekend working on these place cards for an upcoming wedding and can't wait to share all the stationery that we created for this soft garden themed wedding. . .

I've been on a little bit of an unintentional, but much needed break this last week. I feel like I've been running at 100 miles an hour for the last 6-8 months and it was reallly catching up to me. When you've got a small business and you're working full time, your time with friends become a little bit more limited.
So - I've spent the last week with out of town friends, eating too much good food, and just unwinding again.
And when I sat down at my desk to work a couple of nights ago, I remembered why I was doing this. Because I truly love creating, love the art of calligraphy, and love the movement and the uncertainty of watercolour.
Anyhow, listen to your brain and your heart and don't lose sight of your goals, dreams and passion but also remember to give yourself a little break. I'll be back to regular scheduling this week. ✌🏻enjoy the weekend my friends!

I think as a calligrapher/stationery designer, there's no greater feeling than seeing your work all dressed up. It's amazing to see the vision of so many wedding stylists/planners come to life

I loved designing this simple and classic black and white menu for this wedding at @graydonhall_couturecuisine . Planning by @vero_rebeccachanweddings flowers by @carmelawalters . .

I'm definitely a modern calligrapher at heart but I've been enjoying pushing my boundaries with these flourished, pseudo-copperplate place cards.
Flourishes have long been something I've been wanting to master and I have a long, long way to go but the key, as cliche as it may be, has been the practice behind it. What are some of the things you have been wanting to master? . .
