rachel and stirling :: wedding stationery
Today's wedding stationery suite is a super pretty design which we created for Rachel and Stirling. This adorable coupled are located in the Goondiwindi region of country Queensland. With a theme of vintage eclecticism they are having their reception at the Sir Henry Parkes Memorial School of Arts in Tenterfield. This beautiful old building has a family connection and its classic historical history is perfect for their wedding theme.
For their stationery the brief was for something beautiful, elegant and understated. Both Rachel & Stirling have a love for nature and especially beautiful flowers. Keeping this in mind we designed their wedding invitation to feature a beautiful dusty vintage pink floral etching. And something new for us here at Bespoke - we commissioned custom lettering for their names to give the invitations a sense of movement and looseness which isn't always achievable in a more formal script font.
When then tied together the floral illustration and custom lettering with a vintage uppercase serif (with quirky numeral characters) all printed in a mid tone grey ink.
The stationery suite included invitations with printed and lined envelopes, thank you cards, order of service cards and the sweetest little gift tags complete with dusty pink satin ribbon.
Just the prettiest stationery suite don't you think?
