New design - Pretty peonies

Hi there everyone

There's something about peonies... we here at Cocoa Berry (like everyone else) just love them.  I'm sure you've all seen them on various inspiration boards, constantly being pinned on pinterest, or perhaps you actually make it outside and see them in real life and not just on the computer screen (where many of us seem to spend endless hours!).

Which is why we wanted our next design to be all about the pretty peony.   They're just such a romantic flower, which is why of course, they're just perfect for weddings. 

Simple and sweet in plain black and white - or imagine it in soft pinks, pretty peaches or gorgeous greens...

It'll be our newest off the rack design.  But as usual, starts it life on our recent design work page. 

So today we pay tribute to this gorgeous flower that everyone ♡'s so much.

New design - Bee's Knees

Hi there everyone!  Hope you are all having a great week so far... not long to go until the weekend!

Today we want to share with you a brand new design called the 'Bee's Knees' - a simple and mainly typographic design with a sweet honey comb pattern on the back of the invite.

It combines the want of something simple and elegant for the actual invitation,  with a splash of bold colour and pattern on the back. This design would suit a couple who don't want anything overly wordy or decorative.

We think it works well in simple colour combos - shown here in shades of tangerine and peach.

You can find it on our website under 'recent design work' - but it will indeed be making it's way across to the 'off the rack' section - all in good time!

Spotlight couple - Amber & James

We recently had the pleasure of working with a lovely couple, Amber and James - they were married on Saturday 10th March at Chardy Ridge out on Waiheke Island.  Talk about a stunning venue!

The design they chose from Cocoa Berry was 'Just Dandy' and decided on a classic yet elegant black & white colour scheme.  Just perfect. 

We also helped Amber with a stamp she wanted to get made to go with her wedding stationery - we designed all the art work and Amber sourced the stamp herself.   You can see in how great it looks in the last photo - a gorgeous little candy bag! 

The very talented Kate Robinson was their photographer on the day and we're pleased to be able to share some of their special photos with you...

Colours: Passionate peach or succulent sunshine?

Good afternoon everyone!  We hope you're all having a lovely day...

In terms of people getting married and having a choose a colour scheme - it can be daunting... where do you start!?  

We are working with lots of wonderful new clients at the moment and we like to understand which colours best suit which people.   It can be great fun looking through various blogs and sites and exploring numerous colour schemes... then once you've made that all important decision, it all seems that much easier!  

At Cocoa Berry we like to ensure everyone has the exact colour they're after - hence the importance of a printed proof which we always recommend - that way you can see your stationery 'in the flesh' so to speak (and not just online). Then you can really see how the colour prints. 

Whether you are about to get married or not, we wondered, as a colour choice, which do people prefer out of 'Passionate Peach' or 'Succulent Sunshine'?

New designs on the website

Hey there everyone!  

Well it's been a very busy few weeks of enquiries for us here at Cocoa Berry Design - it's been wonderful speaking with so many new clients and getting an understanding of what sorts of lovely designs and colours they're interested in.

So... we've finally found some time to be able to add 3 new designs to our 'off the rack' collection.  This is something we've been wanting to do for a little while. 

Let us introduce to you... 

A charming rustic design - perfect for an outdoor country wedding - gorgeous rural rolling farmland

Ahoy! A fun and quirky design whether you are nautical or not. Tying the knot is a light hearted design using 'knot' illustrations and expressive typography

This design based on the pattern of a greek tile, has been named 'Mosaic'.  It's a pretty wee design with lots of pattern and texture.

We hope you enjoy them!
