Head Designer - Sarah Elliott

Sarah Elliott - Head Creative

Hello Gorgeous!

I'm so glad you've found us. Welcome to the start of the easiest and most seamless part of your event planning. State of Elliott certainly is a labor of love, my pride + joy and I get a thrill being a little part of your wedding journey, helping you bring all the fun bits of wedding styling to life.


So here's a little about me so you know you're dealing with an experienced designer with passion and purpose who stands by her name, product and service.
I've spent the last 14 years as one of Australia’s leading wedding stationery designers. The strength that is State of Elliott is built on creating original design, perfectly paired fonts, colours and materials with Australia's masters in print production.


My signature style is modern but timeless, on-trend pieces which is desired around the globe by brides-to-be and designers alike.
My university degree in design where I majored in textiles is where I crafted my love of colour, pattern and surface trends that shaped the early years of my career and forged my personal style. It's this awareness of style which plays a major part in the look of our collections. You can be sure a State of Elliott design is unique, the highest print quality and most important of all - serviced with the most attentive of communication from start to finish. Don't be surprised if you receive an email returned at lightening speed, I'm a self-confessed workaholic.


I'm proud to say I've put my stamp on well over 4000 weddings, including Australian celebrities and it-girl influencers, we've been trusted by some of the best  - gosh it's all just so exciting! You’ve possibly even had one of my trademark designs arrive in your own letterbox...
I know what works. I know you're wanting fresh, modern + original concepts and we do our best to bring you the NEW every single day. There is so much out there for you to choose from, I get it. But here, we do it better offering you the best designs first, the best package options to leave you more room in your budget. And hey, we all want to save money for the other things that really matter for the big day... like shoes!


True style and creativity is not something that can be learnt (or copied), it comes from deep within and as a consumer you need to feel a connection with the style you are engaging with or you will never trust them to help you bring your vision to life. You're reading this because you have gravitated towards my style, trust that lead, you wont regret it. I love nothing more than taking on a new custom project or simply helping a more conventional bride find her spot amongst the sea of blush and ivory.


Each new season I update my current favourite brands, stores, make-up, food products etc ... all to help you deep-dive more into the personality behind the brand, plus I give you my latest wedding vendors I'm loving, all to help a fellow small business out and spread the love while helping you make some supplier decisions.


Thanks so much for visiting xx
