• C'est Bow-tiful!


    A thousand apologies for another tardy post but with this crazy critter of a one year old toddling around, there just isn't enough hours in ANY day!!

    Next stop in the lovely Mike and Kate's wedding stationery journey is the arrival of their beautiful invitations... Designed very closely with Kate, the personal touches influenced every single detail to create a truly bespoke and utterly stunning result.

    Inkeeping with the theme of their Save the Dates, a rustic vintagey parisian theme was the order of the day. With a bit of a tweak to the palette from the original bold plum and purple colours to more subtle tones of lilac, dusky pink and mauve these invites ooze the shabby chic feel they were after. With a french play on words from the offset, the meticulous attention to detail continues.

    With a Degree in Art herself, Kate was super keen to incorporate her own personal talent into all aspects of the invitation. With a quaint hand drawn map for directions, her own handwriting and gorgeous full colour floral illustrations as an intricate border for the invite, along with representations of lace scraps she had found and liked, the attention to detail was incredible.

    Kate sourced some excellent matching decorative paper to line all the brown postal envelopes with, which accompanied the style and theme of the invites perfectly and with her crafty flair kindly did all the lining of them herself! (With a little help from Mike of course!)

    The structure of the invite is neat, tidy and self contained. Contructed from a cleverly cut, folded and measured sheet of thick warm ivory marbles board, all the guest information is tucked away in a perforated detachable 'flap' that also acts as the RSVP. (A perforated tear-off element was also an essential requirement as outlined in the initial brief.) It just needs to be completed and sent back to Kate and Mike in the pre-addressed cutey patootey RSVP envelope also enclosed... guests just have to lick and stick a stamp!

    Each insert was sized in a staggered formation so that at a glance, the guests could see the whole contents of the invite. Practical as well as aesthetically pleasing!

    All bound together in a silky skinny mauve ribbon bow it's almost like opening a gift!

    So with some butterfiles to order from Australia and a hefty canvas to source for my next commission I really must must press on....

    In a while, little crocodiles....
