Wedding of the year!

James our creative director is getting married this year and I was given the daunting yet exciting task of designing his wedding stationery!

James our creative director is getting married this year and I was given the daunting yet exciting task of designing his wedding stationery!

After working with James for years and following James’ fiancee on Pinterest it was obvious that they both loved hand drawn, illustrative graphical elements. So with this in mind I began playing with illustrations and fonts. I always think a mix of this and something more defined works really well together. I began by creating the ‘James & Katie are getting hitched’ – I wanted this to be something that really set the tone and could be repeated on each piece. I really wanted everything to look playful and fun as well as rustic and vintage.

Although digital print would have saved a few pennies I know James really wanted to go for a more traditional printing process. There is nothing like letterpress and it definitely cannot be replicated with distressing so we found a fantastic local company – Retro Press (www.retropress.co.uk). Kate did a fantastic job and was so helpful throughout the process. After playing with a few different types of stock we went for a really nice, rustic brown, heavy weight paper. We tried using a more traditional ‘white wedding’ ink but the natural brown won hands down every time!

Im really pleased with the results and feel that each piece works well on its own as well as looking fab in a set! Roll on November – Cannot wait for the wedding of the year!
