Weddings, Butterflies & the Sweetest Dreams
Brief: As a follow-up to the award-winning Butterflies and All Things Sweet, we were asked to create a book with similar aesthetic and production values, but in this case showcasing weddings and romance in many forms.

Weddings, Butterflies & the Sweetest Dreams is a companion volume to Bonnae Gokson’s award-winning first book. It is neither a cookbook nor a wedding planner but, rather, a celebration of love, weddings and wedding cakes in an inspirational journey around the globe.

Against a backdrop of sublime images we sourced internationally and art directed with our team in Sydney, coupled with a judicious sprinkling of copy and a scattering of exceptional weddings we highlight Bonnae’s interests, influences and extraordinary cakes.

We were mindful that this should be a book not only for those planning a wedding, but also to anyone interested in design in a broader sense. The pages traverse the arts, architecture, culture, interiors, fashion and of course food.

Weddings, Butterflies & the Sweetest Dreams was published in 2018, with the New York launch hosted by Vera Wang at her flagship bridal boutique on Madison Avenue.

Silver Winner Publication category: Sydney Design Awards 2019.

“Weddings, Butterflies & the Sweetest Dreams simply could not have been so beautifully articulated and well thought out without the leadership of Kate Dennis and her team at This Is Ikon.”

“The project was not an easy undertaking as we were working in three different cities, Hong Kong, Sydney and San Francisco but I am so proud of the result. This book has turned out to be so unique and sophisticated which reflects both Ms B's CAKERY and SEVVA. Hats off to This Is Ikon again!!”
