About Us

Akimbo is a boutique wedding stationery studio based in lovely Adelaide, Australia, founded by designer Alicia Parsons. 

After several years as a qualified commercial graphic designer, I felt the pull to go back to basics and focus on personal communication. Established in 2010, Akimbo was created out of a delicious cocktail of my loves: design, paper and events.

An idealist at heart, I believe beautiful stationery can connect people and give special occasions the attention they deserve. My aim is to create 'clever hellos', that is, little pieces of paper loveliness that will make your guests giddy with excitement when they open their letterbox. I love working with fun couples from all over the world who are dreaming of heirloom-worthy wedding stationery that is a true reflection of them.

You might have spotted Akimbo in your favourite wedding publications such as Style Me Pretty, Real Weddings, Harpers Bazaar, Oh So Beautiful Paper and Polka Dot Bride or in countless awesome real weddings.

When I'm not working with my sweet clients or dreaming up ideas for fab new stationery, I can be found curled up with a good book, kicking back with friends with a glass of red bubbles in hand or elbow-deep in my latest renovating project.

I would love to work with you and your sweetheart to help tell your love story. Get in touch today.
