Jackelyn & Brett Wedding 27 September 2014

Ceremony On the lawn, Ocean View, Fingal Bay

Reception Ocean View, FIngal Bay

Colours Silver with splashes of red

 

Jackie fell in love with the Papertales invite she received for Kylie and Luke's wedding and knew she wanted us to make her wedding stationery. We met with Jackie and her mum and from then on it was a long distance relationship with Jackie living in Scone. Jackie knew exactly what she wanted and we managed to pull all her ideas together to provide her with this stylish and sophisticated stationery package. We love how personal the ceremony program was and what a memorable keepsake it was for many guests. We were thrilled that Jackie and Brett married at Ocean View, Fingal Bay in Port Stephens as we were able to be there on the day for a sneak peak and of course to set up her wedding stationery.

Bonnie & Wayne Wedding 14 September 2013

Ceremony St John's Anglican Church, Fremantle WA

Reception Red Herring Restaurant, Fremantle WA

Colours Champage with a splash of orange

 

We loved working with Bonnie and Wayne who we met on a wet and windy day at Nelson Bay Marina for our first meeting. Our swatches blew away and got wet but there was lost of laughing. Both Bonnie & Wayne were from WA and working in the Hunter Valley made planning a wedding a tricky task but how wonderfully everything came together. Despite the wet and windy day Melissa from Melissa's Photography captured the essence of this love filled wedding.

Jenny & Barry are the loveliest couple and their whole wedding day was just perfect (despite the crazy weather)! The Anchorage is the perfect venue whatever the weather conditions.

Belinda & Tim Wedding 29 December 2012

Ceremony Nelson Head Lighthouse, Nelson Bay

Reception Nelson Bay Golf Club, Nelson Bay NSW

Colours Blues

 

Belinda & Tim's Wedding was in the making for a long time. Because of their chosen date (between Christmas & New Year) they wanted to get their invitations out early so that family and friends could book in their holiday's and accommodation during the busy tourist season in Port Stephens. We loved working with them with their easy going style. Belinda fell in love with our Peacock design. She loved the colours and the style of the folder. But, her theme was Beachy and she loved starfish. So, we re-worked our Peacock design to incoporate the starfish and the result was beautiful. Belinda & Tim carried the theme through to their reception at Bluewater Grill, NBGC and had an amazing eye for detail. They were married on a beautiful sunny summer day which was just perfect for such a beautiful couple.

Michelle & Oliver Wedding 1 December 2012

Ceremony  Anchorage, Corlette

Reception  Anchorage, Corlette

Colours Caramel & Buttercup Yellow

 

We met the lovely Michelle & Oliver at the  Anchorage Wedding Expo and started working on their stationery soon after. Their colours were Caramel & Buttercup Yellow. They loved our Vintage Beach invitation suite but needed changes to make it suit their colours and beachy theme. We worked with them to create the perfect design for their wedding style. Their wedding day was stunning (and extremely hot), but we know that they had a fabulous time with a magician for entertainment and fireworks over the marina to finish the night.

Linda & John Wedding 2 June 2012

Ceremony  Anchorage, Corlette

Reception Anchorage, Corlette 

Colours A Touch of Red

 

Linda contacted Papertales in a great rush. Her small family wedding that didn’t require invitations had grown and grown and all of a sudden with only 4 weeks to go she realised that she really needed some formal invitations. Linda loved one of our designs in pink but was after red so after some quick decisions and running around we managed to pull together a stunning invitation that put the finishing touch on her beautiful relaxed day. The red folder style invitation was wrapped in a simple silver and red butterfly patterned paper and wound with red ribbon and perfectly matched tear drop beads.

 

 

 

 

Katrina and Dan Wedding 24 March 2012

Ceremony Barry Park, Fingal Bay

Reception Catch, Shoal Bay Resort & Spa

Colours Blues and Greens

 

Dan and Katrina travelled up from Sydney for a wedding expo in Port Stephens where we met them. Katrina fell in love with our peacock invitation immediately and new that was exactly what they wanted. Using these elements, Papertales redesigned the invitation into a pocket style invitation suite for their destination wedding! We included an RSVP Card with self addressed envelope, Wishing Well Card, Accommodation Card with map, Ceremony Card with map and a Predinner Invitation for selected guests. Papertales printed, assembled, addressed and posted all the invitations so that Dan & Katrina could concentrate on other areas of their wedding. The peacock themed individual menus and name wraps along with the table numbers looked fantastic with the blue orchid centre pieces in the magnificent Catch Restaurant. A sunny summer’s day surrounded by the sparkling blue waters of Shoal Bay finished off their wedding day perfectly!

Donna and Ross were married in the spectacular location of Barry Park, Fingal Bay on a gorgeous spring day with blue skies and a gentle ocean breeze followed by a reception for 120 guests at Bluewater Grill, Nelson Bay Golf Club. Donna was very particular about the details and new exactly what colours she wanted. She fell in love with our Heart’s Desire Invitation Suite but added a green ribbon to tie the invitation, RSVP, Ceremony and Wishing Well Cards together in a Petal Envelope sealed with a matching Sticker Seal. Papertales managed to source matching green ribbon with a swatch from her bridesmaids’ dresses and working with Opulent Events matched a green metallic card to the chair sashes for the reception stationery. Donna followed her stationery theme through to their thank you cards.

Ceremony Barry Park, Fingal Bay

Reception Nelson Bay Golf Club

Colours Vintage Ivory and Gold with a splash of red.

 

We meet with Rebecca and her mum not long before her wedding day at Nelson Bay Golf Club because she was so unhappy with her wedding invitations and didn’t want to follow through with her order for reception stationery. Rebecca’s wedding dress was a beautiful vintage style antique ivory and her bridesmaids’ dresses were red. Rebecca fell in love with our handmade vintage flower name tags which she chose for the women, (which were the same colour as her wedding dress) and we sourced the perfect red beads to fill the centres. She chose a gold name wrap for the men, with a matching seating chart framed in an ornate gold frame from Opulent Events. We printed matching gold thank you messages for the noodle boxes and finished them off with red ribbon.

 

 

 

Ann & Ross Wedding 6 June 2011

Ceremony Sienna’s Restaurant, Nelson Bay

Reception Sienna’s Restaurant, Nelson Bay

Colours Classic Black and White

 

Ann contacted Papertales only six weeks before her wedding day and said she wanted her wedding stationery to match a black and white damask runner she was using for your reception tables and it had to be printed on linen paper. Papertales custom designed her wedding stationery to match the traditional  elements she had chosen. Reception stationery matched with individual menus and place cards to match her stylish and sophisticated theme.
