Azalea Calligraphy & Design

Stationery

Hi, I’m Azalea, the creative behind the papers, ribbons, and wax seals. For as long as I can remember, I have always loved crafting invitations using all kinds of materials that I could get my hands on. It was one of my all-time favourite things to do. Some time in 2015, I picked up my first brush pen and watercolour set and  that was the start of my love affair with the visual arts.

My passion lies within calligraphy and wedding paper goods. I design romantic and elegant wedding invitations for both the classic and modern couples. I absolutely love helping my clients create wonderful memoirs of their special day through their invitations.

When I’m not designing invitations or creating with watercolours, you’ll find me traveling with my husband exploring new places in Australia and around the world.

Interview

IF I HAVE A FREE SUNDAY I WOULD SPEND IT… lounging at the beach with my husband and my future dog.

MY MOST MEMORABLE TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WAS… our Japan trip. That was in 2018 and I haven’t gotten over it.

THE COUNTRY I MOST WANT TO VISIT IS… still JAPAN!

WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT MY JOB IS… It’s uniqueness. I work with different people so everyday is different, every design is different. Nothing is routine and my time is really my own so it’s always fun for me.

IF I DIDN’T DO THIS FOR A JOB I WOULD BE… working in research. I have a science background specifically in Animal Science which was very much a research based course.

IF I COULD GIVE NEWLY ENGAGED COUPLES ONE PIECE OF ADVICE IT WOULD BE…The adventure has only begun! You will experience new things about your partner that you have never seen before during this planning season and after, so be kind, patient, and gentle with one another.

I LOVE WHERE I LIVE BECAUSE… It’s bright and quiet. Two things that I very much need to be productive.

IF I COULD LIVE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD IT WOULD BE… Japan. That’s stationery heaven. To be near where all the best materials for calligraphy are found is such a dream.

MY FAVOURITE MOVIE IS? Mulan. What’s not to love about this movie? I’ve even memorised the whole script!

MOST MEMORABLE MEAL I’VE EVER EATEN WAS… I’ve never eaten raw fish till we visited Japan. Ate my very first fresh tuna from a traditional Japanese hotel and it was amazing!

THE PETS I OWN ARE… I have a dog, a shih tzu - poodle mix, who was given to me by a friend who moved abroad. She’s now 13yrs old and still quite active. She’s living with my family in the Philippines because I couldn’t bring her with me to Australia. I miss her everyday!
