Challenge

Create various Wedding stationery from invites to place names.

Result

Rustic and elegant stationery featuring blues and yellows (Pompey reference!)

I really enjoying creating Ali and Oli’s wedding stationery! I was given a wide brief – which is always a designers dream! Ali showed me her Pinterest board that featured ideas that both her and Oli liked which I was able to gather lots of ideas from this! Pinterest is the way forward!

There were only three things that were required

1) Bunting

2) All the information to feature on one card

3) A map to each of the venues


 

My Moodboard

After seeing the Pinterest board I started to gather ideas, colour and fonts together. As well as coming up with the little extras that they could add to invites i.e. confetti, string and certain types of envelopes.

I find putting a moodboard together really helps the client to see where you are coming from and what design route you are going to take. It also shows your understanding of what they require.


Invite Design

The day and evening invite had the same look and feel. To help tell the difference between them, the item in the circle on top of the invite was different.

The evening ones had jars where as the day invites featured a simple illustration of the church. This was the actual church they were getting married in.


 

Everything you did was amazing, we would send anyone who asked in your direction.


 

On the day

For the actual day I was asked to design the ceremony booklet, place names and table plan.

The ceremony booklet is usually designed by the church but Ali and Oli wanted to keep the design consistent throughout the whole wedding. I designed the outer in the same style and look as the invites and left the inside plain and white. This was then checked by the church for spellings and the hymn formation.

Each place names were printed and personalised with everyones name and the couples wedding info on the back. I have to say the printer I used did an amazing job on these! They came creased and on the same stock as invites – this helped everything stay consistent.

I would like to thank Clare at barfootphoto for letting me use images from the day!
