dearly beloved

Let 2015 be known as the year of the wedding. I've been lucky enough to help several couples with their weddings and it's always been a delight. Not a bridezilla or groomzilla in sight, just lovely, unique and beautiful people and their equally beautiful celebrations. 

This is a quick round up of some of the recent weddings I've worked on. Marc and Whitney went Luxembourg chateau with an international twist. Rich and Ange went faded elegance in a beautiful glasshouse in North London. Louisa and Shane will tie the knot in November in Perth within the rustic charms of a vineyard. 

Marc and Whit

I've previously posted about Marc and Whit's save the dates, but creating these print invitations was pure joy. Letterpressed on 700gsm Colorplan Pristine White with red painted edges, double sided in two languages, these came out oh so beautifully and Marc and Whit were thrilled. Thank you to Blush for the lovely work.

Shane and Louisa

For a wedding in a winery, we went with the rich ruby of red wine and the earthy green of the leaves, intertwining to create their initials. The little owl heart was inspired by a print I'd seen on Etsy and brought in as a reference to the name of the vineyard (Wise Winery). Printed onto 300gsm Tintoretto Gesso. 

Ange and Rich

"Where are you getting married?" I ask.
"Oh, it's kind of a plant shop in North London", Ange says.
Me: "...oh, that sounds... different!".

What do I know. Clifton Nurseries was beyond beautiful. Everyone should get married there immediately. Or at least go for afternoon tea; you won't regret it. Anyway, in keeping with the venue, Ange and Rich wanted to keep things botanical, and we found an absolute treasure trove of source material on the Biodiversity Heritage Library Flickr page.  

I designed the invitations and the on-the-day elements like the table plan, place names and table numbers. I also had a ball helping/hindering the exceedingly talented Waverley Grainger to dress the venue.
