tamlyn & sidney :: wedding stationery
Today we have another lovely Spring time wedding invitation to share with you. Tamlyn and Sidney are a Brisbane, Australia based couple who are celebrating their wedding this coming October. We received the most gorgeous inspiration images from them to help explain their day (if you know the source of these images, please do let us know so we can give full credit). They are planning a day full of old world charm, a hint of fresh yet elegant country styling.
With such a beautiful theme we designed quite a number of initial invitations for Tamlyn and Sidney to choose from. As per our last wedding featured here on our blog we also commissioned custom hand lettering to reflect the elegant country styling of their wedding day.
Their chosen design was centrally aligned and this beautiful hand lettering was the key focal point of the design. To inject a little of the beautiful country florals with Tamlyn loves we illustrated by hand a bunch of lavender tied with string. This was coupled with a vintage serif, and elegant script and letterpress printed in our vintage brown ink on ivory 100% cotton paper.
The suite also included an information card and envelopes printed with their address details.
We absolutely love this wedding suite - the strength of one colour printing is so perfectly suited to letterpress and really highlights the strong and beautifully crafted typography. One colour invitations are also the most cost effective option as they only require one set of printing plates and one hand feed through the press. But the end result is lovely is so many ways.
We wish Tamlyn and Sidney a very beautiful day, we have no doubt that with their gorgeous styling their wedding day is bound to be simply spectacular!
