A wedding with a ceremony that was held in a quaint little chapel on the side of the road in Jarrahdale, Western Australia. This chapel was surrounded by an array of native Australian flora and fauna. Think huge old Eucalyptus trees and shrubbery. The reception was held at a winery that sat alongside a river not too far from the chapel. It had old school charm and showed craftsmanship. The bride hand made all her floral bouquets and decorated the tables with old vintage books.
When I was designing this invitation, I wanted to create a fun yet down to earth feel. I wanted it to be rustic looking but not over the top to the point of looking "themed". This invitation is very typography based so I had to choose the fonts carefully. The bride wanted illustrations of bunting and a gramophone incorporated somewhere in the design. I added the 'L' and 'A' in mason jars for a cute personalised touch to the invitation. The main invitation was printed on eco friendly recycled cardstock which complemented the whole feel of the wedding.
The Polaroid style of the Wishing Well and RSVP cards was the bride's idea. I thought it was very clever and it adds an element of surprise into the invitation set. There are no rules that say every part of the invitation set has to be matching and this is one example where it works when mixed up.
The invitation set was completed by being bundled and tied together with black baker's twine.
