In 2011 I was invited by Melbourne couple Nat and Drew to design their wedding invitations.
Set to take place in Bright in country Victoria, the couple had planned a relaxed weekend long celebration for their family and friends. The brief was to reflect the setting, the travel aspect of the weekend and draw inspiration from vintage and art deco style.
The inspiration for this particular invitation was a vintage destination postcard as the wedding was to take place in Bright, Victoria. As travel had played a big part in the lives of this sweet couple and the wedding was intended to be a relaxed country mini break (with a wedding thrown in for good measure), I felt that the concept of a postcard fit perfectly.
Using art deco flourishes and vintage style post marks, the invitation reflected the fun weekend ahead and the style of the event. The front of the invitation featured a picture I took of one of the gorgeous views from the venue as a way to introduce 'the destination' to guests (yes, I did drive to Bright to take photos!).
On the reverse the vintage touches continued in the form of flourishes and a post mark I created with the couples name and the date of the wedding.
The invitation also features a selection of real vintage stamps from my Grandads stamp collection which I carefully glued by hand to each invitation after the printing process was complete.
