Real Weddings – Gwyneth & Paul

When Gwyneth and Paul came to see me earlier this year to have a chat about their bespoke wedding invitations they had a very clear brief for me. Vintage transport tickets.

They were having their reception at The Ferry Boat Inn in Felixstowe and were also providing a vintage bus to transport their guests from the church to the reception, so a transport theme ran strongly throughout their day. As part of my consultation I always ask couples the information they need to provide their guests with, as this often determines the style or design of invitation. Gwyneth and Paul had a few pieces of info that their guests would need to know so we decided to go for a ticket style that had an additional card attached to it with rustic string.

I included a small calendar on the invitation with red dots to highlight the date of the wedding as if the ticket inspector had punched the ticket. To add to the ticket feel I incorporated aspects like the words ‘First Class’ and the date of the wedding running down either side of the cards, I also created a stamp with their name and another with their names and wedding date, as well as having each section of text in it’s own rounded box and some of the text running in different directions. This all added to the vintage ticket vibe. We had the tickets printed on a smooth, uncoated card as this suited the design best. We originally spoke about using a textured card but once the design came together, with all its different aspects, we decided adding a textured card to the mix might be a bit too much.

Once the cards turned up from the printers I hold punched them all and threaded the loose rustic string through really finishing off the vintage detail.

So you see, with a bespoke design the possibilities are endless. Whatever ideas you have we can bring together to create the stationery you are really after.

If you have an idea you want to discuss for your stationery, just get in touch! I would love to hear from you.
