kate & joel :: wedding stationery
Last April we showed you super sweet save the date cards for Kate & Joel. This has been a much loved design with alot of our clients saying that this is one of their favourite designs when viewing our portfolio! It was a very simple and clean, yet beautifully impressed design.
When it came time to design the rest of Kate & Joels wedding stationery their brief was for something a little more decorative, but still to flow with the clean simplicity of their save the date card. We produced quite a few different options from them to choose from, and their favourite was our design above!
It is a very textural invitation featuring a blind impressed full bleed (runs to the edge of page) background pattern. This gorgeous illustration was the coupled with classic and elegant, and a tiny tad traditional typography. Such a beautiful combination!! This card not only looked amazing, but all the valleys of the letterpress impression felt incredible.
We completed the set with an invitation, accommodation and map card, reply card, gift card and envelopes to suit the lot with a pinstripe lining continued over from their save the date.
Kate has some gorgeous ideas for their ceremony (I do hope they will share photos with us!!) with an amazing sweets table planned. The Love is Sweet tags will be used for guests to fill their favour boxes with all their favourite sweets - yum!! We also made some special extra tags which will be used to jazz up the sweets table (although I am sure it will be jazzy already!)
It was a real joy to work with Kate and Joel, they are a gorgeous couple and as they are based all the way over in Perth we have never actually got to meet, but already feel like old friends.
We wish them a wonderful wedding day in two weekends time!!
