A ‘Mudgee Holiday’ Wedding Invitation Suite

April 23rd, 2013

Occasionally an invitation is designed that doesn’t fit one particular brief but is simply too beautiful to sit homeless and buried in a desktop folder. The story of this invitation was just that. We loved it too much not to post a pic on Instagram and it was there that Bonnie and Olle found the perfect fit for their nuptials and adopted this suite for their ‘Mudgee Holiday’ wedding weekend in springtime!

They appreciated its loveliness simply from a desktop screen grab. From that jumping off point we were utterly inspired by Bonnie’s refreshing colour palette highlighted by glimmering copper accents in bunting she had chosen. The artwork was treated to suit the couple’s colours and the copper hue was interwoven by overlaying foiling on the formal invitation component. This was further carried through with Retro’esk calligraphic addressed envelopes in copper ink.

Fashion Week Invitation Finery

April 15th, 2013

Australian Fashion Week has successfully wrapped for another year and in keeping with this we thought it the perfect opportunity to share some favourite international Fashion Week invitations.

What excites us about fashion inspired invitations is how creative they must be to tell the story and set the tone for the Collection they represent. Whether a clever concept like Riviera Club’s custom wine label with restaurant receipt or with an elaborate combination of print processes like Christian Lacroix’s intricate blind embossed invitation with red foiled accents, it is these types of invitations that inspire us to think outside and away from the lace trimmed, diamante embellished ribbon tied box.

Vintage Wedding Vacation in Historical Hobart – Felicetta & Guy

April 5th, 2013

This mood board was created with Felicetta and Guy’s ‘Garden Party’ theme in mind. Their wedding venue, Cascade Brewery, in historical Hobart further directed the concepts pitched.

Felicetta’s Italian heritage and the couple’s love of travel (think vintage travel posters), inspired their palette of citrus summery tones, vintage illustration and Retro typefaces. In terms of styling, garden games such as croquet, bocce and even a flower adorned swing are envisaged, set amongst oversized brightly coloured balloons strewn across the grass. To refresh guests after their garden frolic, an assortment of Italian citrus flavoured waters could be served.

Playful Save The Date ideas have been considered such as vintage seed packets containing seeds of flowers included at the wedding, as well as a ‘Vintage Travel’ style postcard of the Brewery’s commanding presence amongst rugged surrounding hills.
