Hanna and Martin (as seen on ITV's 'Real Housewives of Cheshire') wed in the stunning halls of Liverpool's Anglican Cathedral,  followed by a reception in the lush surroundings of Sefton Park's iconic Palmhouse.


Hanna's vision was to honour both the awe inspiring setting of the cathedral and her Iranian heritage - combining a traditional invitation with elements of Persian design. I used a variety of printing techniques. The invitation was printed using thermography (giving a raised effect) - deep green on a pure white board. It was wrapped in a vellum sheet featuring a lush and leafy tropical design in many shades of green. The accompanying info card featured a paisley design, foiled in bright gold. Paisley is an ornamental pattern originating in Persia featuring the 'boteh' or 'buta', a teardrop-shaped motif with a curved upper end. The theme carried throughout the stationery suite, and was set off with additional gold touches -  the wax seal and the thread binding the suite together. The seating plan was a mirror with the paisley pattern applied around the edges with sumptuous hints of luxurious gold on the individual cards. Simply stunning!

Chelsea and Mark's wedding reception at the Walled Garden, Orchardleigh, Bath was so beautifully light and airy you never would imagine this took place in October!


The stunning photographs which reflect the day so perfectly were taken by the super talented Heledd Roberts @heleddrobertsphoto. Charlotte Elise Events helped to plan the day and the stationery which I designed for Chelsea and Mark reflected their engagement on safari in Kenya.The seating plan almost floated on air, with cards suspended on a clear acrylic background and fairy lights twinkling in the background.



Col & Jen were great fun to work with.  A pair of seasoned globetrotters, the vision they brought me for the invitation was something reflecting their extensive travels. It had to say 'wedding'....and it had to have the look of being produced by an artisan working in an attic studio and laboriously adding traces of gold fleck by hand! I think we nailed it. Flecks of gold, and a collection of mementoes - artfully transformed into the essential guest information for their wedding day. The accommodation was detailed on a business card, there was a travel itinerary for the order of the day, a vintage postcard RSVP, a handwritten note with gold wax for the gift list - and a nod to their original celebration in Turkey in the form of a little wallet sized picture. The theme continued with their on the day stationery.


Gemma and Ben were a delight from the moment they walked in.  Gemma literally could not wait to get to work on the stationery and had so many fabulous ideas.  The stationery was based around a series of illustrations I created of their wedding venues and their relationship landmarks. This is what they said about the process:

"Ling was amazing to work with. She went above and beyond in designing the perfect stationery for our wedding day ... We met with her several times throughout the process and she was always so friendly and welcoming ... Our stationery contained some phenomenal sketches drawn by Ling herself of places that are special to us ... We've had some of the sketches framed we love them so much.  We highly recommend Dragonfly Couture Stationery to anyone looking for the perfect personalised stationery ... "

After the wedding I was honoured to create a thank you card, and for a first anniversary present I was commissioned to create a 

piece of bespoke artwork and a posy of paper flowers from Gemma's bouquet!
