I dare say that any Bride will find herself trawling Etsy in the early days of planning for some handmade wedding gems.

We always try to support our unique local vendors. Today we have 5 vendors in the Spotlight, all of whom are based in Queensland.



Velvet Teacup


Velvet Teacup is the talented work of Coralie Milne. Now a designer of bespoke hair accessories, her creative career has included sewing, dressmaking, decoupage, mosaics and embroidery.
Velvet Teacup is based in Dalby, QLD.


Couture Press


Couture Press‘s vison is providing alternate wedding stationary to the traditional styles. Couture Press is by Clare McFadyen. Clare’s wedding stationary has a distinct clean and sophisticated style, a great option if you want to avoid conforming to a traditional style.

Meg, the creator and designer from Addax Feathers has a large collection of bohemian inspired feather pieces, including her exquisite bouquets.
All handcrafted on the Gold Coast, QLD.



Happy Bear Designs


Happy Bear is a quirky custom portrait and illustration store by Natalie Elyse. Natalie’s portraits have been used as a unique way to announce an engagement, save the date, or simply a family or wedding portrait.

Custom Favours


Custom Favours have a variety of handmade and locally sourced favours. Their collection includes: candles, test tubes, honey jars, paperie, and an awesome little selection of mens favours.
The test tubes, my personal favourite given the impact they would make on a minimalistic table setting, can be filled with loose leaf teas, honey, BBQ spice mixes, olive oil or sweets. All favours are customisable.
Custom Favours are located in Caloundra, QLD.
