This stunning shot of Wai Kai and Wai Lok, taken on 24th November, 2018 at Yi-ban Chinese Restaurant by the talented Jeff Oliver Photography (https://www.jeffoliver.co.uk/).
"It was taken from the balcony at Yi-ban, looking back down the runway of the City Airport," explains Jeff. "The lights of the runway make this a really interesting view point, you can even watch the planes come and go."

I admit, I am stationery obsessed but just look at this rather extra range from Papier London in collaboration with the V&A! The timeless range of customisable wedding invitations is embellished with Art Deco flourishes, beautiful nods to nature and real gold-foil details. Celebrating the patterns and motifs of the 1920s as well as the colours and illustrations of Owen Jones' 19th century drawings, the collection of menus, place names and invitations gives a new perspective on decorative designs found in the V&A archive.
Lauren Sizeland, Head of Business Development and Licensing at the V&A commented: “Papier have beautifully translated the V&A archive into this exquisite collection of wedding stationery. Each archive piece has been thoughtfully adapted for a contemporary audience, with a design to suit every taste.” For more information, visit www.papier.com
