 photo guestbloggers_zps10c503ef.gif
When I was searching for our own wedding design inspiration - I used all the usual sources - pinterest, awesome wedding blogs and wedding magazines (coming out my ears). On top of that I searched around the internet and stalked some of my favourite bloggers, photographers and designers. And by stalked, I mean - stalked. a lot of stalking. In my travels around all the usual local blogs I love I came across one of the most gorgeous invites created by Fathima - the designer behind Happiness is...

I literally begged Fathima to let me share her gorgeous invite design during my Guest Blogger Series and she very kindly sent over some of her awesome design work for me to share with you! I'm so excited for you to see it because it is really so beautiful. I absolutely love her whimsical style and I often pop over to her blog to see all her gorgeous illustrations. I love the way she mixes pen and water-colour  - so pretty! Sigh. You can like the Happiness Is... Facebook Page - to keep up to date with all her awesome designs and pretty illustrations.

So enough with me yakking - Here's Fathima's beautiful design work - it speaks for itself.


Hi everyone! Fathima here from Happiness is... It's so awesome to be able to guest post on a blog that I admire, so thanks for allowing me on here, Ché! In keeping with the wedding theme, I'm just going to share some wedding invitation designs I've done and some other love-related bits and pieces...

This was a wedding invitation created for my cousin and her now husband. He's from France, she's from here... how romantic, right?(This is in fact the wedding invite that I saw ages ago on Happiness is... and begged her to let me share it - i love it! Especially the map and little boat lines - so cute!)
