Colour Palette: Duck Egg Blue, Gold Trim and Pale Pink

This Handkerchied is one of my new 2015 designs, and is a modern take on a vintage theme. Duck egg is one of my most favourite colours, and compliments a vintage theme so well. Combine with soft pink and gold trim, a really elegant scheme is created.

Colour Palette: Rockabilly Black, Red and Powder Blue

Rockabilly style is one of my favourites and I love the way it can be expressed in Weddings. My Black and Red polka dot invitation, which features a CD style insert with wedding details on, is one of my more popular designs. Though many have opted for the Red as shown, I have had several other colour combination requests too.



I love how a powder blue compliments the stong red and black, and think it softens the rockabilly vibe without toning down the overall effect. Picking out key pieces in the powder blue - such as the sash on this bridal gown, and the icing on this cake, is how I would look to create this style, making it more suitable for spring or summer weddings than just Red and Black together.

Colour Palette: Vintage Botanics, Greens and Dusky Pinks

My Vintage Pocketfold suite uses a Vintage Botanical Illustration and has a beautiful selection of shades to choose from for a wedding palette, so offers quite a diverse choice with styling.



I always pictured a simplistic wedding, with lots of wild flower bouquets, an elegant wedding gown with intricate detailing, mixed bridesmaid dresses of varying shades of earthy greens, and vintage placesettings of hessian, tea roses and pennant favor tags.

Colour Palette: Yellow & Grey

This was one of the first pocketfold suites which I designed, and I was mostly imagining a very modern, clean a simple wedding.



Pale grey bridesmaid dresses, pale grey suits, and a simple modern White Bridal gown. Accents of yellow in the flowers, with bold statements on the place settings and general decoration.
