Nestled in Central Otago, surrounded by some of New Zealand's most beautiful landscapes, Smitten With Love was born. Drawing inspiration from the scenery, the joy of my couples and such a momentous occasion in their lives, designing heartfelt bespoke and semi-custom wedding stationery followed naturally. I soon discovered helping couples create precious keepsakes, for years to come, was something I was passionate about and continue to be.
With a strong focus on illustration and craft and as a highly qualified Illustrator and Graphic Designer, Smitten With Love is an extra special wedding stationery boutique. Each illustration is hand drawn in studio and developed to produce a fusion of exquisite, contemporary and romantic paper goods. I take great care to reflect each couple and their style during their special time, working with you to create and customise your dream stationery. I’ve personally hand picked card stocks, printing techniques, coloured envelopes and embellishments that are tried and tested, to give the most phenomenal finish. I can’t wait to work with you to create works of art, beloved by both sender and receiver, near and far.
KIM // CREATIVE DIRECTOR & FOUNDER
Having always had a pencil in hand, I was determined to turn my passion of all things creative into a career. Making the leap from a fairly quiet rural life, I moved to Wellington to attain a Bachelor of Design at Massey University with First Class Honours. Upon graduating four years later, I freelanced and pursued another year studying a Dipoma for Graduates in advertising and marketing at The University of Otago. During this time I was fortunate enough to be involved with some gorgeous clients and gained invaluable experience teaching portraiture and working for DDB Advertising New Zealand. As life continued so did the milestones, and I found myself designing wedding invitations for some very special friends in a pretty incredible location. I quickly fell in love with the artful process of stationery design and soon after, on the 1st of February 2017, Smitten With Love was born. Thanks for being a part of my journey and I personally can't wait to be a part of yours.
