something to treasure…

Its been the busiest of all busy wedding seasons, so sorry for the lack of features, new ideas, studio gossip and snap shots of stationery we’ve been creating.  I keep asking myself where the time has gone, its been a blur and the studio has been under immense pressure and bursting at the seams with lots of goodies being made, wrapped and sent on their way to weddings across the globe!  We’d love to see where some of our invites end up…

So with a whole treasure trove of lovelies we can’t wait to share we you we thought we’d kick off with one of the newest laser cut wooden artworks we’ve just made.

Penny and Mike came to us over a year ago and we made the wedding stationery for their special day. Then out of the blue Penny gave us a call, she had an idea … she wanted us to create a first anniversary present. Penny had seen one of our ‘Garden Party’ laser cut wooden artworks on the show room wall and she wanted a laser cut wooden artwork of their wedding invitation, the ‘Up and Away balloon’. With an added extra, she wanted their names and the date of their wedding adding underneath to make it bespoke.

We think the results are rather lovely and the beauty of the laser cut beech wood looks stunning against the white frame. Hand made and painted in Farrow and Ball Pointing White.

Belvoir Castle Winter Wonderland Wedding

 

Bespoke, printed wedding invitation

Sophie & Sam came to us to create a bespoke design for their wedding stationery. 
The theme was for a beautiful winter wonderland wedding 
at the stunning Belvoir Castle.

 They knew exactly what they wanted so after a few initial sketches 
we quickly had the design for the Save the Date card. 

Bespoke, printed save the date card
The scene was their summer proposal with Belvoir Castle in the back ground 
set under a tree in leaf, with their little cat under a sign post 
with the all important date of the wedding.

Save the Date bunting hung in the tree with little hearts,
 with their initials carved in the tree.

Bespoke, printed wedding stationery
 We then designed the day invitations, complete with RSVP
 postcards and guest information cards.
The same colour theme continued, printed in a beautiful dove grey on pure white card.

For the wedding invitation the scene changed, it was now winter and a 
Christmas wedding, so the trees were without leaves and they were hung with
 little snowflakes and fairy lights.

A lucky little pad heart pad lock hangs from the sign.

Ski Lodge Winter Wonderland Placecards

So you’ve decided on tying the knot in winter and you’re thinking about themes. We adore an all-white winter wedding, or perhaps a Scandinavian red and white theme, or even ‘let it snow’ with snowflakes! We’ve recently been inspired and have been dreaming about a ‘Ski Lodge Winter Wonderland’ theme. It would have to start with finding your perfect country barn venue, with long wooden tables, cosy blankets on the chairs for your guests, candles – lots of them in Kilner jars, snow globe table numbers, white twigs and branches, snowflake decorations, pine cones & maybe even a reindeer!

 Vintage Ski Theme

Our dreaming of a ski lodge wedding started when we were asked to create some laser 
cut antler place cards. They would be the perfect table decoration!

The little antlers were laser cut on the back and simply pop-up when the 
place card folds over. They're so cute and effective!

Bespoke table place card

A beautiful powdery soft grey card was chosen which would work so well with blush and neutral shades for a warm winter theme. 

A colour palette like this is the perfect accent to a vintage ski theme.

Our calligrapher mixed a powdery white ink and chose a quirky style script.

Sometimes you just find it hard to say goodbye to some little lovelies!

Renate & Roy welcomed their beautiful baby into the world & asked us to design birth announcement cards to share with their friends & family the wonderful news!

A nautical theme new baby card with boats, bunting & balloons & the family dog got a starring role too!

Here’s a few pictures of the finished design, laser cut onto silk card & backed with wedgewood inlay:

Laser cut Chandos House wedding invitations

Hon & Chen married in September at Chandos House in London and
they came to us with the idea for a bespoke laser cut wedding invitation. 
They wanted to incorporate the beautiful building they'd chosen for their 
wedding, an impressive Edwardian building with the most stunning entrance doorway.
We loved the idea and so we started to sketch away adding within the design 
the couple in front of Chandos House surrounded by bunting & hearts.
The date of their wedding is above the archway & their initials
are cut into the railings.

A Spanish beach wedding!

Lucy & Guy married by the beach in Marbella, Spain last week.

They came to us late last year to create stationery for their celebrations. They knew that they wanted wedding invitations that reflected the fun day they have in store for their guests. The finished bespoke design is a pair of flip flops (one finished with small silver diamantes!) surrounded by beach flowers, palm trees, shells & with their names cut though the middle!

The invitation is cut onto sandy, mink coloured card & the inside is printed onto contrasting quartz paper.

Laser cut rose lace invitations

Natasha & Will came to us & asked us to create bespoke invitations for their wedding in June. Natasha knew that they wanted the finished design to be based upon lace & to feature roses. She also liked the idea of incorporating their initials.

 The finished design is a beautifully intricate rose lace pattern with their initials, ‘N&W’ cut into the bottom corner. The design also has a hidden clue as to their secret wedding location!

We also created some pretty printed postcards with the same rose lace design to invite guests to a post wedding celebration here in the UK in July.
