It was such an honour to illustrate a wedding map for my dear friends Emma and Charles. As founders of lifestyle brands Emma Kate Co and Orbitkey, they have a strong eye for design. They created a wedding stationery suite with understated elegance, using lettepress, soft artisanal paper, silk ribbons, and a pocketfold invitation with information cards.
It was important to create a playful addition to their suite, but keep a minimal aesthetic at heart. With Emma’s signature lettering as a guide, the illustrations were painted with a breezy informal style, in a colour scheme chosen from her brand colours of delicate sage, earthy pink, taupe and cremes.

"Working with Michelle on our wedding stationery was an absolute delight! With both of us coming from design backgrounds, Charles and I had a very particular vision for our wedding, and every little detail for it.
We really connected with Michelle's gentle and light watercolour style, and her warm, caring way of looking after us through the entire process made the experience really feel so special for us. Michelle understood our vision instantly, and had a beautiful way of making the whole process feel very collaborative.
Our final stationery was more than we could have hoped for, or imagined! We couldn't recommend working with Michelle more highly. Thank you so much for your beautiful presence and creativity."
