Lovely layered lace invitations

I was so flattered when I was asked by a very stylish childhood friend (with a very creative mother) to create her wedding invitations and delighted when she told me that her favourites were the ones I made for our wedding (you can see these here). 

I thoroughly enjoyed reliving the process that I'd used to create these collaged layered invitations using lace textures to tie in with her dress and photos of the venue.

The cards were bound together tied up with string in an origami brown paper envelope, which made opening the parcel an event in itself.

With that extra attention to detail the cards were double sided so that the lace on the front of the invitations could almost been seen through the back of the card. 
We also carried the theme through to the order of services and name cards. The order of services were hand bound books containing the order of the day and readings chosen by the couple.

More origami and Tube Map style table plan

In doing a bit of a sort out of my creations I realised I never shared these pieces I created for Jenni and Tom, who I originally created the paper cut folded petals for.

The name places were origami flowers in the colours the theme of the wedding day, the wedding was on remembrance weekend and the bridesmaids were in navy.

For the groom, the bride asked me to create an origami Yoda as an alternative to the rose. It was a bit of a challenge but one I enjoyed (helped very much by online videos). I even provided her with a choice of colours!


The table plan was based on a london tube map, as the couples had chosen the tube lines as their table names, again something which I had lots of fun creating and looks really effective.

Save the Date Magazine

I am truely delighted to be mentioned in Save the Date magazine for the laser cut invitations I created for Tamsin and Rob, who's recent wedding in Matlock just looks absolutely gorgeous!

Congratulations and well chosen suppliers!
