As a starting point, I illustrated the family and framed them to get an idea of colour scheme and layout ideas for the invites. I also framed the Church and venue and made a motif of their initials to use as part of the theme.
invitation | front.
Gatefold invitation. Invite to the ceremony and evening reception.
Features the facing portraits of the bride and groom (front) and the children, Church and evening venue (back)
invitation | inside.
My brief required me to create a heavy underlying London theme. I used a London skyline blending with the chosen colours and a Victorian-style clock face. The RSVP was stuck using a sticky dot to the space for guests to pull off and fill out to send back.
RSVP & belly band.
RSVPs measure 85mmx55m. These were pre-stamped by the bride and stuck to the inside of the invite.
The belly band is the same mint green as the invites and the motif is used in the text.
invitation | evening.
As well as the invitation to the ceremony, I was also asked to design an invitation to the evening reception.
I included all of the elements from the ceremony invite, including the portraits.
extra information sheet.
This sheet was sent alongside the invitations. There is a lot of text included but it was fully legible and in keeping with the theme
Once the first batch of invites had been sent, the bride retained me to design some more items for the wedding day.
There were 3 table talkers on each table, displaying (from left to right) a chosen message from the bride and groom, a portrait panel and the evening menu.
place cards & table names.
Place cards feature the motif and London skyline. The place cards and table names were designed to match.
The table name sheets were designed to cut into an oval to fit into white oval vintage frames, measuring 90mx110mm.
