Ainsley & Jon’s August 1st Wedding

We first met Ainsley & Jon just a few days before their wedding after communicating through email. During the last six months we’ve discussed their vision for the wedding and ironed out all the details. Admiral’s Green is always a bright and airy venue to decorate and we loved the colour scheme of navy & pink. Here are a few pictures we snapped…

Ainsley & Jon emailed us a picture of their invitation and we drew inspiration from that for all of the reception stationery, repeating the tandem bicycle throughout the event.

Many of our clients live on the mainland (some even in England!) and it’s not uncommon for us to take bookings without even meeting officially until the week of the wedding. We absolutely encourage couples near and far to reach out to us. In this day and age, so much of the planning process can be communicated easily through email with specific questions, answers and images. We would love to be of assistance, wherever you may be! Zach Wheeler Photography did a great job of capturing Jon & Ainsley’s big day:

We are working on a line of greeting cards to sell here in the shop, and our stationery designer was inspired to make this sweet wedding card (stay tuned for more cards, coming soon)…


Hope you are all enjoying the last day of August, but don’t forget: Fall doesn’t officially end until September 23rd so enjoy three more weeks of Summer! 🙂

Jeanna & Jon – by Sandra-Lee Photography

Today we have some gorgeous images to share from Sandra-Lee Photography. Jeanna & Jon’s wedding was last year in July at the Sheraton, and it was a true pleasure to work on the floral & décor for their big day.

Jeanna was kind enough to leave us this review on our Facebook page recently:

“By Sharpe Design went above and beyond to successfully achieve our visions for our wedding ceremony and reception. Their professionalism, expertise, and attention to detail are second to none. Overall, an absolute pleasure to work with! Highly recommend!”

Thanks to Jeanna & Jon for taking the time to share their wedding day photos with us. Huge thanks also to Sandra-Lee Photography for the impeccable attention to detail when capturing every element of the wedding day! We are very grateful and happy to share these images.

Rustic Wedding at Murray’s Pond

Today we have a quick picture post to share one of the gorgeous weddings we set-up this weekend at Murray’s Pond – the atmosphere and all the natural light make this such a beautiful venue to work with.


I’ve been working with Sue for the last five years creating custom paper products for the weddings and events we decorate. Every table number, place card, seating chart, etc. are made in house and are created to best reflect the overall look and feel of the event. The kraft place cards and seating chart were individually hand-stamped and embossed, and the sweet table number tags were tied on to bottles of flowers.

The ‘chalkboard’ signs on the dessert table were actually printed to mimic the real hand-lettered chalkboard we created for the ceremony. Such a pretty and clean way to get the chalkboard look without the dust and mess of real chalk.

We had a busy weekend setting up and taking down weddings, which is the norm during the summer months here in Newfoundland. Monday & Tuesday are always about clean-up and preparing for the next weekend of weddings.

Just a reminder that we will be closed on Wednesday for Regatta Day (weather permitting) or on whichever day the Regatta goes ahead. Hope you’re all enjoying the sunshine, we’ve got the door open here at the Gift Shop in Churchill Square if you’d like to pop by.
