save the date hand made

I had a unique request off my sister for her wedding invitations – she wanted something very bespoke with an element of humour.

The result was these completely unique and custom made illustrated portrait of her and her fiancee, of coarse I had to include the dog as he never misses an occasion!

I chose my sisters favourite flower to border the illustration, but this can be something else if you require. Such was the case with my best friend and her fiancee as shown below;

The borders here reflected their vast number of interests and dynamic personalities.

Of coarse if you want to keep it simple or just have a plain border you can opt to do so like the illustration shown below of a client I did a few months ago;

 

You can order just the illustration service or our printed save the date cards as one package. There are  3 gorgeous card stocks to choose from all with matching envelopes.

tree design invitations

These cards were designed for a a client who was getting married in the autumn, she had a reception in the outdoors so the design theme and colour had to reflect these surroundings with warm tones and organic fluid shapes.

She wanted her invitations to be rustic but also have a bit of shine, so the design was printed using a pearlescent finish to give it a shimmery eye catching effect. It really makes the design come alive and give it a magical feeling.

The details page was a chance to try something different; I wanted to use a cyclical shape as a basis of the layout rather than a generic list. Whilst playing around with the tree photographs and bunting, I stumbled upon an concept of a clock which would highlight important times which would correspond to important events that would revolve around accordingly.

The invitation set comprises of;

Main invitation and details 148mm x 210mm
RSVP 148mm x 74mm
Save The Date Card 148mm x 148mm

They are 300gsm on pearlescent stock.

A purple ribbon matching the bridesmaids dresses tied the set together.

A Gold Envelope was chosen to keep the tone whilst giving a striking first impression!
