So what did we accomplish.....
We created all of our own branding and designed our website! We created seven designer semi-custom wedding suites, crafted individually to offer something unique and stunning. We designed three custom wedding suites for lovely clients and customised a number of semi-custom suites for our clients. Check out our feedback, it has all the feels!
With the help of my Dad, we built our very first stall! He was incredibly patient with my very particular requirements and tight timeline, this was a pretty special time and he made the most beautiful job. Aren't Dads just the best?! Mum also pitched in, doing an all nighter with me to assemble my custom wedding stationery folios - shout out to my Uncle Mark who also came to the rescue in the early hours. Family are the best!
With this stall we attended Wild Hearts Wedding Fairs in Queenstown and Christchurch, showing our work and talking to guests, we also meet vendors who were very welcoming and inspiring and had immense support from the Wild Hearts team. If you are new to the industry or are looking to be married we can't recommend Wild Hearts enough! Through these new friendships we collaborated on a number of occasions, creating some magical styled shoots which were featured on White Magazine. You can check out those features by clicking on the images below.
Following this, we attended The Central Otago Wedding Fair in Alexandra, meeting more local vendors and getting to talk to lovely guests. 2017 was the first year this Fair had run and so we look forward to seeing it return in 2018 after a very successful event!
Our new gift card range launched in September for saying all of the special things, and are excited to let you know, at current these are stocked in Oamaru, Alexandra, Cromwell and Mosgiel. If you have a place in mind you'd like to see these babies, drop us a line.
We started planning a new product and service for 2018! We can't tell you much about this at the moment, hush and hush and all that!
So we can't wait to see what our second year in business brings, we have a four new semi-custom designs launching in the next month and development for new products ahead of us! Thanks so much for following and being a part of our journey.
