Hello! Today I thought we would post an inspiration board of sorts. We have taken one of our new designs (currently nameless!) and paired it up with a few images that would help to set the tone and theme for your wedding.
We like to show how your stationery can influence your theme for the day! Something as simple as lime green and black colours in your stationery can lead you on your way to a fresh and bold theme. Enjoy!
Here are a few pics of a recent job for the lovely Claire and Stuart. They went for an 'Off the rack' design 'Text Only' and added their personal touch with a customized map, extra insert, RSVP postcard and address labels. A fabulous colour palette of beautiful bronze, cream and black was chosen and resulted in a stunning combo. Simple and elegant with a bit of edge. Love!
The details are Saturday 21st August 2010, 5.30pm - 7.30pm, Albert Street, Auckland. So come along for some bubbles and canapes, meet the wedding specialists (and meet us of course!) and check out the fabulous venue that is the Stamford Plaza.

For the opening we decided to show how a collective of specialists can get together and show how together we can create a one cohesive theme. The theme for the opening was '30 Love' drawing from inspiration from the 1930's and bringing it in to the present day.
I wanted to post a few pics that we took of the day to show how we created stationery to fit this vintage theme.
Belinda from Smash Photography (who is also part of The Boutique Bride) was documenting the whole day including an editorial shoot the following day - and needless to say she has some amazing images of both days that will come in following days!! So here is a small peak at what you can expect.
As you may or may not know Cocoa Berry is part of The Boutique Bride and it is very exciting to announce that the grand opening is upon us!!!!

Hello Interweb. Feeling more and more like a bad blogger at the moment - I notice my last post was in MAY whoops!!!
So here goes the first post for June. Another example of taking one of our off the rack designs, adding your own touch and making it extra special.
Kirstin and Friedrich chose the Decorative Frame design and changed the colors to fit their theme of Jade green and crisp white. To make their invites extra special they chose two types of speciality paper stock. A textured paper for the outside and a delicate translucent paper for the inside. Add in the custom designed motif of their initials, and you've got yourself something rather special.
Here are a few pics of invite and the construction of the final product. Thank you Kirstin and Friedrich you were an absolute pleasure to work with!
Hot off the press and ready to be assembled (over 300 pieces!)
Well its well and truly winter down-under. Cold nights and wet days so far - not so so good.
I thought I would post a few picks of our Chandelier designs which I think would be perfect for all those winder weddings. To me it evokes visions of a reception full of flicker teas lights as the evening grows darker, open log fires, red wine and snowy peaks in the distance. Bliss!
Hello All! Sorry in the delay in posts - things have been a bit hectic recently at CB!
I wanted to share with you a few pics of these delicious invites using silver and gold foiling.
Taking your invites + stationery to the next level - making it EXTRA special - can be achieved with silver or gold foiling. Metallic printing is usually associated with more 'traditional' wedding stationery but using it in combination with a modern design can make it so effective.
Hello All, well we are just getting back into the swing of things after the Bride and Groom Wedding Show last Sunday. Such a full on day but a great chance to meet loads of new Brides (and Grooms!) we are looking forward to working with you guys!

We've had the pleasure of working with Kirsty and Gary on their Save the Date cards for their up and coming nuptials.
Kirsty came to us with a very clear idea (and some creative license!) and we worked together to come up with the following design. With Gary being Scottish and Kirsty being a Kiwi (and the marriage taking place in NZ) it was important to them both to include Gary's heritage - hence the Scottish Thistle being the core element to the design. It also has extra special meaning - being the the symbol of the country they first met in. Bliss!
Kirsty chose a slightly textured paper for her Save the Dates - adding to the rustic elegance in the overall look.
We are looking forward to working on further stationery with Kirsty and Gary later down the track.
Contact us here to enquire about your own Save the Dates.
