Effortless Beauty By The Sea Inspiration

    10 February 2014

    This mood board was created with Kate and Dane’s uniquely chic Palm Beach venue, The Boathouse in mind. This elegantly rustic setting inspired the couple’s wish to incorporate unstructured blooms, deliciously deconstructed canapés and free flowing champagne, to marry effortlessly against the breezy Pittwater backdrop. A soft palette of organic ivory and pale grey, with hints of sea foam and pretty peach, was inspired by the venue’s natural surroundings.

    Each invitation concept put forward was unpretentiously thoughtful and tactile, combining modern elegance with a casual air, a true reflection of the day. Potential solutions showcased unique formats, elegant typography and cost effective, yet luxurious print processes.
