In 2012 I had the pleasure of designing wedding stationery for Melbourne couple Natasha and Ed.
The couple had planned a contemporary destination wedding with the relaxed ceremony set on the beach in Sunshine Beach, Noosa.
The invitation set includes the invitation, rsvp card and a details card and map. The main motif featured on all elements of the suite are the 'love birds' - which are a bride and groom birds that I digitally illustrated. The 'love birds' tie in perfectly with the romantic theme, colour scheme and also the bird cages which will be a styling feature at the wedding.
I also illustrated a map for the details card which sets out the day in a graphic form.
The suite features two fonts for the set - Buttermilk and AW Conqueror - they
perfectly reflect the romantic yet contemporary balance that underpins
invitation set is tied together by a wrap band featuring the emblem I design for
the couple and the sweet words ' a wedding, a love story'.
All items were printed on Stephen Spicy, selected for it's off white colour and subtle texture. The invitation card was also backed with kraft stock, complementing the kraft string and button envelope.
The couple also invited me to design table menus for the wedding reception.
Suite elements include:
Invitation - large square card backed with kraft stock
Illustrated map and details card
