Twisted Mr

Introducing Matt Russell, better known as Twisted Mr!

Matt started in the industry working in the party section of a popular craft and homewares store creating basic balloon decor items in 2007. Having found balloon twisting and in turn a new passion, he started practising and learning different balloon figures. Matt’s talent for creating amazing designs has made him a sought-after balloon artist for all kinds of events and celebrations.

Twisted Mr provides everything that a balloon loving customer could want. From giving small intimate affairs a splash of wow factor, to working alongside stylists to brings a large scale venue to life. Specialising in organic balloon garlands, jumbo balloons, confetti balloons and tulle balloons, there’s nothing that he won’t do to create the magical decor that you desire.

Matt will be at the Sunshine Coast Wedding Fair next Saturday, the perfect time to come and pick his brain for some balloon inspired inspiration. Head to the Twisted Mr website to see more of Matt’s work.

 

Little Duck Calligraphy

 

Get ready to feel inspired!

Little Duck Calligraphy grew from the love for the art of calligraphy that artist Tess found when she was planning her own wedding. As a self-confessed history nerd and bookworm, she found herself in awe of the gorgeous script seen in old love letters and notes from generations past and knew that she wanted those timeless touches as part of her own day. This started a sweeping love affair with calligraphy and Tess soon dedicated herself to learning and growing her skills and quickly expanded to include sketching and watercolour paint.

Tess is highly sought after for creative collaboration both in Australia and internationally and has been featured in magazines across the globe. Brides and grooms turn to Little Duck Calligraphy because of Tess’s focus behind creating their stationery and the emphasis that she puts on making them the centre of the creative process.  She works together in a partnership with each and every client to create the wedding stationery of their dreams, from save the dates to thank you notes and everything in between.

Tess will be at the Sunshine Coast Wedding Fair sharing some of her jaw-dropping work and answering any burning questions that you may have for her, so be sure to grab your tickets now! To see more from Little Duck Calligraphy, you can find Tess on Facebook or visit her website.
