This weekend Sail and Swan were part of the Bay Bridal Fair - our first time! For those of who you aren't familiar with us, Sail and Swan is an Adelaide Wedding Stationery business, servicing all parts of Australia. We also offer services such as handwritten calligraphy envelopes, custom wedding chalkboards and wooden invitations. We had a great time at the Bay Bridal Fair - it was a busy and bustling day with lots of friendly faces. Live music, bridal fashion shows, dancing, food and drinks were all part of the fun, not to mention the wonderful selection of wedding products and services that were exhibiting on the day.

Below are some snap shots from the day which I hope you enjoy.

The gorgeous flowers in the photos are by Bella in Bloom and if you would like to see the full range of Sail and Swan's Wedding Stationery you can click here.

 One of the highlights for me was getting to meet the stall holders and seeing their beautiful displays and product. I took a lot of snap shots on the day which I will show you below, but also want to say a big thank you to Bridget Quain Photography who took some professional photos of my stall for me! Here are some of Bridget’s photos:

Feeling a bit over the cold winter weather? I'm super excited to show you the result of a recent Winter Wedding collaboration shoot, in which I was lucky enough to feature my new bright and rustic wedding invitations!

These wedding invitations feature rustic fonts such as this loose calligraphy font as well as the old style 'stamp' font which is beautiful to see up close. I illustrated the lovely wreath of flowers which explode in a warm mixture of rich and vibrant colours! My design features yellow billy buttons, soft and flowing petals, dramatic flowers and beautiful leaves. All of this has been placed onto a lovely white textured card which balances the colours perfectly and adds contrast to the design. The backing of the invitations (as well as the front of the RSVP cards) feature a bright wash of watercolours - bold purples, pinks and oranges jump off the page and make for a great statement! For more information on this Design Set or my other Wedding Stationery, click here.

And in case you're wondering..Lucinda May Photography took these beautiful photos and her floral stylist sister-in-law Amy from Bella In Bloom created the dramatic arrangements of flowers. Just because Winter is cold doesn't mean you need to have a cool colour scheme! We went for a mixture of warm, vibrant and bold colours, which stood out and made a statement. We felt inspired to stick with a rustic theme and this forest in the Adelaide Hills was the perfect backdrop! In keeping with the rustic theme,  Sweet Bea’s made this gorgeous 'naked' or open layer cake. We were also lucky to have Rene from The Vintage Bride Boutique on board - her dresses suited the shoot so well. The dress that we featured was a 1950′s original vintage dress which even had a couple of pieces of confetti from the original wedding in it - how beautiful and original! And finally, the make up was done by Make Up to Shake Up and the hair was styled by Hair to Envy Body and Beauty, bringing the whole shoot together and tying things up beautifully.

Hope you enjoy!
