Producing wedding invitations for any couple is going to be a challenge. You are working on the biggest and most expensive day of their life and you want to make sure that you do that honour justice. You want to do the absolute best job that you can possibly do for them.
I am lucky to have been involved in a few weddings over the past couple of years, like Laura & Tim’s and Jo & Martin’s, and I really do relish the challenge of coming up with a distinct look and feel for wedding invitations that suits the couple to a tee. When I was approached by Susie & Jake to work on their wedding invitations, I knew I was ready for a new challenge.
Susie came to me with the idea of using water colour paintings and native flowers as part of her invitations. This tied into her overall wedding theme of natives for bouquets and decorations at the receptions, and it’s lovely to be able to produce invitations that speak to part of the overall look of the wedding.
The clusters of native flowers seen on their Save The Dates and Wedding Invitations are hand illustrated, not purchased stock imagery. This is incredibly important I feel to ensure that for a day like your wedding, you have a beautiful and completely unique piece that represents how important and individual your day is.
We decided to continue the theme throughout all the stationary, with each piece having its own flavour – the Save The Dates have less flowers, being the first piece of the puzzle, while the Invitations are more like the bridal bouquet, layered with flowers and the RSVP cards are made up entirely of foliage, giving them a distinct look and feel.
I absolutely afore these invitations, I think the effect is beautiful and totally suited to the couple they were created for. More importantly, the couple and their guests have all been completely delighted by the invitations, and you cant really ask for much more than that.
Thank you Susie & Jake for letting me be part of your special day!
