Cat + Paul // Tarureka Estate

Smiling Bride with Beige Hand Painted Bridal Jacket | Custom Wedding Jackets | The Paper Gazelle

We not only designed and hand painted a stunning peony wedding jacket for Cat, she also commissioned us to create a couple of sentimental and meaningful keepsakes for her new hubby on their wedding day; a personalised wood plaque with their new family name and a beautiful excerpt from Jake Scott's song song 'Tuedays'.


Kind words from the Bride

In the planning of our wedding, I wanted there to be touches that felt very personal and special to Paul and I. We have a really tight knit family on both sides, so we included pieces and features that mirrored this. We had a tree full of wedding photos of our whole family and friends - called it our family tree, my mum made my bridesmaid dresses (and jumpsuit for one bridesmaid!), Paul's mum made our wedding cake and majority of our menu was vegan to reflect our environmental values.

Jay's design fit in with all of this. Her work felt both beautiful and well made, but also like a friend had made it. She understood what my vision was without us even meeting in person. Jay's work is something I had admired for a while on Instagram and to finally get to work with her for my jacket and my gifts for my now husband was really special. She thinks of everything and all the little details she adds in to her service really sets her apart from other businesses.
