Winter weddings can be just as magical as Summer ones - a touch of fur here and there and a sprinkling of snow can make the day complete. An indoor wedding also means you don't need to rely on perfect sunshine for your perfect day. For Faye & Chris the 4th of February was their chosen special day. The look for the day - simple, stylish and white.
We met Faye and her mum Ann at the Bristol Vintage Wedding Fair, where they were looking for something with a hint of classic style, without the rustic vintage trend that is so popular at the moment. Being the perfect client, they were very open minded when it came to the stationery design, giving our creative muscles space to stretch and come up with some very unique ideas.
The outcome - a subtle grey on white scheme, with a monogram motif used throughout, simple and understated without being too fussy and with a hint of fun.
We created the entire suite for the wedding - the accordion Save the Date cards with matching handmade mini envelopes, the main day and evening invitations and all of the day stationery, including the order of service, escort cards and place cards.
Enjoy this Wintery inspiration. (Yes, it even snowed!)
