We are Matt and Petra Salvatore. We live on the Northwest Coast of the beautiful island of Tasmania.
We are both graphic designers with a love for simplicity and functionality. Together we enjoy designing for print, and believe that paper is still a valuable and essential part of day to day living. Of course we still live with our phones in our hands and laptop screens in front of us for much of the day, but we are passionate about bringing life back in to print through beautiful design and simple functionality.
We started Forever Press for this very reason, to create and deliver simple, stunning and functional wedding related stationery for couples and their guests. Our vision and hope for the business is that through our products, like our Bridal Diary, rather than stressing through the process of planning a wedding, couples will be able to focus more on their relationship and prepare for a strong marriage.
The Bridal Diary is our very first product and it’s taken us over 2 years to create! We bought wedding planners from around the world, found advice from past and future brides alike, and using our own first hand experience, we can safely and proudly say that we wish we had the Bridal Diary for ourselves back when we were planning our wedding!

Simple, personal, timeless, detailed & quality
A little about your process
Planning a wedding can easily get quite stressful. Couples who use the Bridal Diary will find that everything they need to plan, research and think about is covered in the planner, taking much of the stress out of organising their wedding day. The Bridal Diary has been printed and bound in Melbourne using beautifully thick Ball & Doggett paper and stunning hardback washed grey linen.
