Where it all begins...
All bespoke commissions begin with hand drawn details, ranging from venues, crests, monograms, hand lettered names, & floral details which are definitely my favourites.
Bespoke suites are all about showing your combined tastes & personalities. Each suite should be a very personal & meaningful representation of you as a couple. When using the same design features throughout your event stationery - from save the dates, to the invitations & on the day stationery; it's a beautiful way of achieving a cohesive look & feel.
ZOE & ALan
This lovely couple wanted a simple, clean, & modern looking invitation; but both approaching this vision with different tastes. Split in agreement over hand lettering, a gold finish & even the inclusion of a floral. This design won both of them over, each particularly keen on the way it allowed more than one textured card stock to be used. It's the best feeling in the world when a bride & groom both genuinely love the design, this suite has now become very special to us!
The line drawing illustration gives a soft feel whilst not overpowering the piece. It's gorgeous cut out design allowed the layering of gorgeous luxury GFSmith papers; producing a very tactile invitation. With a gold foil finish adding to the understated elegance of the set, this simple double sided invite really packs a pretty punch!
The 'day of' stationery continuing with this design throughout, including some very gorgeous place tags & matching table plan!
Fadhia & Mohamed
When wedding planner Katie, of The Events Designers contacted us with this brief we were so excited, it immediately sounded so beautiful! Fadhia & Mohamed had a very clear vision of a blush & black stationery suite. The emphasis was on a classic script look.
The initial idea evolved into something truly special! Each guest received a tiny black gift box containing this mini wedding invitation book. This set became a true labour of love - each blush 'page' mounted on thick black card stock, & then all bound together with ribbon; to be presented in the boxes. The smallest & cutest set yet!
We especially loved the romantic feel & touches in this set, the fairy tale prose was a particularly sweet edition via bride to be Fadhia.
If an elegantly scripted suite, with modern floral accents fits perfectly with your theme, please drop me a message! I'd love to see what I can create for you.
emma & lewis
Emma & Lewis are marrying in Hawaii. They wanted to gift their guests with an invite set that felt more like a keepsake of their day than simply an invitation. With a beautiful colour scheme of pale powder blue and grey, and silver foiling as an absolute must for the couple, we still managed a very tropical feel with each invitation featuring its very own hand drawn orchid and monstera illustration.
The result is a very fine art feel, each its own unique set. But it would be wrong to be so serious; if you catch a glimpse of the itinerary for this lovely couple's week, you would see there is definitely a playful side there! Therefore the most perfect fun finishing touch came with the set presented in a vellum wrap and sealed using a very cute pineapple wax seal.
Matching vow cards were also produced and it was so lovely to include some Kate Cullen hand dyed silk ribbon on these, such a gorgeous luxe feel.
Emma did briefly mention in the early stages that they too would like a keepsake to treasure and I suggested an original hand drawn illustration. I'm so thankful they loved the idea because the coloured orchid and monstera piece truly won it's way in to my heart, and became very hard to part with! Thank goodness for the lovely planner and stylist that is Katie of The Events Designers who hand delivered the pieces perfectly to our couple herself
If you love the sound of a co-ordinating illustration to cherish I'd love to hear from you, drawing bouquets is quickly becoming my favourite thing to do!
bethany & Joseph
Bethany knew what she wanted, she simply couldn't find it! (Always the way isn't it!)
With a colour scheme of peach & blue to play with & a very definite idea of including the wedding flowers this delicate design was created!
A beautiful peach based watercolour bouquet, full of coral peonies, orchids, David Austin & garden roses. Including blue accents to compliment the chosen colour scheme for the day. This suite has a very feminine look, the soft peach conveying a soft, summery feel.
Sarah & john
After a visit to Paris & the Chateau de Versailles, I came home completely inspired by the statues, gardens & architectural details. When Sarah & John approached me for a bespoke suite for their elopement I told them of my ideas, & luckily they completely trusted in my vision!
This fine art set includes details such as an attire note to ensure no wardrobe malfunctions (hopefully) on the day. a subtle way to make your point without any faux pas!
A gold foil finish was introduced to the 'day of' stationery; which will look stunning reflecting the candlelight at their intimate reception. And a very large welcome sign was also created to take pride of place at the ceremony entrance & once adorned with flowers will be a piece to remember.
If the romantic sculptural details of European countries intoxicate you this could be the perfect suite for you! We are so excited to see this one letter pressed too - oh the possibilities!
