Wedding Stationery Design - Greg & Harriett

I had so much fun working on this bespoke wedding invitation suite for a couple who contacted  me about designing their stationery. Wedding stationery is a business that I've always wanted to delve into, so with a resounding yes and a few conversations about what they were looking for, I created the following design:

The brief was to illustrate the date of the wedding in a heart shape for one invite, and then two invitations for the guest's info within an illustrated border. The watercolour painting was done by hand with a lovely spring time colour palette, and hand brush-lettering for the date. Scanned into Photoshop, I adjusted the levels to make the colours extra vibrant and clear, and I artworked the guest info on the bordered invitations.

I used Printed.com (as I do with my greeting cards) to print the invitations on their gorgeous nettuno stock. The paper is textured so it's lovely to touch without interfering with the finish of the illustrations. I also ordered the A5 envelopes to match.

I thoroughly enjoyed working on this commission, not only because creating the artwork and designs is so much fun, but to contribute to a couple's special day is really cool! I hope to design a range of customisable designs for my online shop, as well as working on more bespoke, one-of-a-kind commissioned suites.
