It's been a while since I posted on here, but I've been super busy working with lots of couples on their wedding stationery! So so excited to show you some of the new designs and different themed creations so I've decided to talk you through three of my recent weddings...
One of my favourite wedding projects to date was working on Grace & Daniels mountain themed stationery. The couple love the outdoors and hiking so it was such a fitting theme to share on their wedding day.
Firstly something I'd never tried before...handmade wooden mountain table names. I had loads of fun going through the process of making these. Sawing the wood, sanding it down, painting on the varnish, adding white snowy tops and hand lettered names. Along with the grey slate name places the wooden mountains looked lovey on their dining set up.
Then their order of services, bordered with mountains and full of adventure, keeping to their blue, grey and orangey red colour palette. This was a great opportunity for me to combine my patterned landscape work with wedding stationery and I loved it!
Finally some signage. Sticking to the rustic vibe, simple white lettering on wooden signs with a few added illustrative elements, looked lovely placed around their venue. Another challenging request I hadn't created before but well worth the time. The wooden signage set included a welcome sign, several quotes and bible verses and a chalk board sign too.
Pretty & Pink
Wax sealed name cards were a first for me! They looked so classy with layers of card and vellum paper, white hand lettered names and finished off with a pearly white wax seal stamp. It was a first but definitely not a last...I'm looking forward to adding those to my portfolio and offering a range of different colours and paper combinations.
Beautiful white and pale pink roses and peonies with eucalyptus and other greenery made up the brides bouquet so I took inspiration from this for the floral motifs. A geometric theme ran throughout their venue, this made a lovely border on my designs. A large seating plan with illustrated borders and a matching design on a bespoke signature drinks sign looked slick in their barn venue. I particularly loved illustrating the couples favourite drinks so they could display them by the bar. A long single sheet order of service was a beautiful way to take their guests through their wedding ceremony.
Sometimes less is more. This golden set of hand lettered stationery is simple and elegant. Different to some of my more illustrative work but I loved mixing it up a bit and stripping it back. A bit of a gold shimmer adds the wow factor to any wedding signage. Beautifully picked textured paper with gold boarders and gold lettering for name places, table plan, table names, menus and signs.
Thank you for having a nosey at some of my latest creations. I look forward to my next blog talking about my 2022 calendar! Keep a look out for that.
