"We can never thank Emily enough for the love, effort, and commitment she out into our wedding stationery. From the moment we met Emily, we knew this would be the best fit for us.
Emily accommodated all of our requests, she kept clear lines of communication with us, and it made the whole wedding process that much easier. Even when we had a minor crisis and Emily was overseas getting ready to be married herself, she still took the time to help us. That is pure loyalty and commitment. We are eternally grateful for all of Emily's help and she helped made our wedding that extra bit special but making our vision real.
It has bee a true honour and pleasure working with you and we cannot recommend you enough :-).

Emily went above and beyond for my husband and I when creating our wedding invitations and stationary. No suggestion or question was too big or small for Em. She made the process of designing our invitations so much more easier than we could ever imagined. She took on board all our ideas and created something so magical. Emily made us feel at ease and stress-free during the designing process, through regular email communication and our meet ups to discuss ideas further.

The time and effort, Emily, puts into her work is second to none and we are forever grateful for all the time and effort, she put into our design. We loved our invitations and stationary as well as our guests too. We had so many compliments about our invitation and stationary design and this is all a credit to the amazing work of Emily.

We highly recommend Emily and her work as she was one of the most professional, kind-hearted and considerate vendors we dealt with during the planning process to our wedding. Thank you for everything, your hard work and dedication in making us happy will never be forgotten and we will be forever grateful!!

You do fantastic work and the love you Or in shines through your creations.
Thank you Emily xo"

"Emily was able to capture the country/rustic feel we were going for immediately. The phrasing, picture placement, and simple and creative designs captured exactly what we were looking for. Once the invitations were mailed out, we had so many people say how unique and gorgeous they were! Some guests even wrote on the RSVP card that they LOVED the invitations. The ability to make our wedding invitations both personal and creative provided that extra little something we were looking for. Thank you Emily for making the invitation process fun, exciting, and stress free!"

"Thanks Em...they are absolutly awesum!!"

Rod and Zoe - via Facebook, January 2014

"We first heard about A Box Full of Matches when we saw their booth at the Melbourne Bridal Expo in January 2013. The style definitely wasn't what we originally planned as we had never seen anything like it before. We made an inquiry and received a prompt reply. After only a few short discussions via email, Emily knew exactly what sort of look we were after and she sent us a style guide that captured our personality perfectly. We scouted and locked in a location, and the day we held our photo shoot was a total blast. Emily was quick to send us numerous drafts to choose from as a starting point, and the editing process was smooth and simple. She listened to our feedback and frequently suggested her own ideas for making our invitations even better. The final result was beyond anything we ever could have asked for. It perfectly reflected not only the tone of our wedding day, but also who we are as a couple".

"I got the coolest piece of mail I have ever received today. You two certainly outdid yourselves with your invitation. It is AWESOME!!!!!!! Where did you find the plane?

The cities on the front is perfect for you two and the Contiki shot ties the whole package together." -- Dad
