Beautiful Illustrated Rustic Wedding Stationery!

I was recently commissioned to create some very personalised Wedding Stationery. I absolutely loved this project!  I created the bespoke design for some clients early this year for their summer wedding in late august this year. They wanted a rustic barn feel wedding invitation with caricatures of themselves illustrated on the front of the wedding invite.  They wanted three parts to the invitations which including the main invitation which I varied for the day and evening cards, a guest information card with an illustrated map of the wedding venue and cute little RSVP cards.

Once I had gathered all the information for their big day I started to get to work on their unique hand drawn illustrated stationery specifically tailored to reflect them and their big day. The colour theme was a nice soft colour palette consisting of pastel pinks and blues. I designed the invite in a portrait format so the caricatures were at the top of the card with a heart shaped daisy chain around them. The information about the day was just below the caricatures and their names were in hand drawn typography in the soft blue and pink and a bunting positioned at the bottom of the card to reflect the country theme. On the back of the card the guest information was added. Following the front design the daisies were repeated at the top of the card and the hand drawn illustrated map positioned in the middle to help guest locate the wedding venue. I designed a small RSVP card to match the invite with a mini camper van illustrated on it in the pastel blue. The invites were neatly packaged on top on each other as a group with rustic brown envelopes, and tied together with lace a twine to create a rustic country feel.

I loved working on this colour combination as its so nostalgic and whimsical.
