Two tiny news members of the team!

22/09/2010

Hi everyone

Apologies for the lack of posts recently…….last Wednesday our little ones decided to make a surprise appearance 3 months early so we’re being kept very busy in hospital in between designing all of our customers’ invitations. We will be back online shortly but in the meantime, here’s a pic of the two gorgeous reasons for my absence….

Hi everyone,

I’ve realised that I’ve been very slack in updating the blog lately so thought I had better offer an explanation! My brain (and body) have been a little bit pre-occupied with some amazing news…Briz and I are going to be parents to twins!

Now the initial tiredness (and shock!) is over, I’m back in the game and will update again more regularly.

For anyone who’s interested – here are a couple of piccies of the bump and our latest scans! Oh how i love them already!!!

Beach theme wedding invitation

17/05/2010

Here’s a sneaky peak at our latest bespoke invitation for Lucy and James…..they wanted to reflect the laid back ambience of their beach themed wedding as they both windsurf and love the outdoors and are arriving at their wedding by boat! We’ve used inspiration from the beach huts where they met and the seaside town in which they live and where they are getting married to create a unique illustration that captures the spirit of the occasion to come. We’ve also incorporated cute little details making the invitation like a postcard including a personalised postage stamp to reflect their love of travelling all over the world. What’s more – we’ve produced this design so that our bride and groom to be can print the invitations themselves.

Monogram initials invitation design for civil partnership

21/04/2010

Wow – what a few weeks it has been. We’ve been rushed off our feet but now things have settled down, thought I would share with you the development of our latest invitation for a gorgeous civil partnership taking place this summer. Peter and Philip wanted something classic, simple and stylish to reflect the venue they have chosen (Home House) and wanted to include a bespoke monogram of their first initials. We looked at various different ways of interlocking two ‘Ps’ as shown here and we’re all so happy with the finished product. The silver on white looks simply stunning! We’re working away on matching collateral for the day including maps and menu cards and will post the full set when finished.

My gorgeous friend Emily from Chewbz has just sent me some stunning photographs of her deep red wedding dress from her New Year’s Eve wedding so thought I would share my favourite……she looks incredible and so perfect for a winter ceremony….congratulations Emily and Dom and thanks for letting us share. If you wore a coloured gown or plan to wear one drop me a line…..love to see those who dare to be a bit different.

My new favourite site

21/03/2010

My new favourite blog is Rock N Roll Bride. This site is a must for anyone who wants to ensure their wedding stands out from the norm and reflects their own style and personality!  It’s truly inspirational and I wish I had found it when planning our wedding as it would have given me the encouragement to take my more colourful and alternative wedding ideas even further. Everything about this site is Rock n Roll and i love it!

Contemporary and informal wedding invitation wording

18/03/2010

There are many reasons why you may wish to choose a more contemporary style of wording for your wedding invitations. You may want to incorporate words of a song or poem or it may be that you want to express a style and theme or use more casual wording for a more informal gathering. When designing your invitations, you can provide the wording that you like, or we can work with you to create a style that suits you (I’m a writer by trade so really enjoy crafting something new and bespoke to our couples).

Briz and I incorporated lyrics from our favourite song (And I love Her by The Beatles). Not only did it reflect our love of the 60s and The Beatles as well as our relationship, but it also beautifully captured that our ceremony was going to be in the evening…..ahhh the memories!).

Below are a few examples that we like for inspiration and suggestions for how to lay out the invitations and what information to include. Simple, short and sweet always works best in our opinion.

Other things to consider:

Rather than stating the obvious “reception to follow,” you might opt for something like: “Food and festivities to follow”, “followed by dinner and dancing” or “and afterwards for fun, food and drinks”.

Consider other wording for reply cards that will suit your style of invitation: perhaps you ask your guests to  “accept with pleasure” or “decline with regret”. Or, they might have the option of checking “we’ll be there to with bells on” or “we are sorry that we can only be there in spirit.”
