Spreads from Bonnae Gokson's book

Weddings, butterflies & the sweetest dreams

Hong Kong-based cake designer Bonnae Gokson commissioned This Is Ikon to art direct and design her award-winning coffee-table book Weddings, Butterflies & the Sweetest Dreams.

Featuring written contributions by fashion designer Vera Wang, and style icon Iris Apfel, the book is a visual flow that waltzes the reader through evocative locations, beautiful cultural approaches to weddings, gorgeous gowns, and Bonnae’s cakes — themselves feats of engineering and works of art in their own right.

The book won Silver in the Publication category at the Sydney Design Awards 2019.

I worked closely with This Is Ikon to source imagery, which saw me working with photographers, image archives, agencies and individuals around the globe to negotiate and secure usage rights.
