It was just over a year ago, eating a bowl of Moules et Frits, on holiday in Paris with my girlfriend Liz, that I realised I could quite easily spend the rest of my life with her. I just needed the right way of asking the question, and a bit of time to work it all out. One definite intention was proposing through illustration. I’d like to think of it as two of my favourite things in life in coming together for the one goal.

my bro is scooting over to germany with his wife & 5 month old baby to attend a summer wedding that’s going to be held here. serious? serious. the bride’s sister lives in the place. nice! i can imagine characters from a jane austen novel wandering about the gardens and looking out the windows with their sewing on their laps.

let’s run away together

When they decided to get married, Shana & her husband were determined not to get caught up in all the hoopla of the wedding industry.
