It gives me flutters when I see wedding invitations I have designed photographed within the greater context of a wedding day.
I created Esther and Brendan’s stationery last year from my tiny desk in Montpellier, France. These happy snaps of the bride and groom, flowers, table settings and atmosphere just arrived in my inbox and I am excited to share. What a stunning wedding!

And just some shots I took for my invitations portfolio.
Someone beautiful in my life once told me that success is all about showing up on the page. If you do that, then you’re half way there. Well, giving this notion a bit of a shake up, this week I decided to show the world my pages. That is, the pages of my recently published book.
Packaged delicately and with a letter straight from the heart, I sent off 8 Chrysalis books off to faraway lands and a selection of incredible people. And i’m talking Oprah kind of incredible. She’s just a person, right?
Who knows where the books will land. I’m seeing this whole exercise as a bit of an experiment. Human or not, I can imagine that hundreds and thousands of letters are constantly sent to a key media figure like Oprah. But for me, it’s all about showing up on the page… by showing my pages.
All I can do is send out my love, wonder and imagine the ‘what if’s’.
So there you go, universe.
For the record, here are my top 8 media and inspiration picks:
1. Oprah Winfrey
2. Sabrina Ward Harrison, New York (favourite artist)
3. Tim Walker, London (favourite photographer)
4. Elizabeth Gilbert, New York (favourite author)
5. Ellen Degeneres
6. Mel, Kochie and the Sunrise team (an all time favourite)
7. 60 Minutes (Channel 9, documentary style show)
8. Mornings with Kerri Anne (Channel 9)
To my beautiful 8 books, be safe.
Go now, run wild, barefoot and free.
