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.

The day invitations are a traditional folded style, cut onto silk card with
a gorgeous emperor red inlay colour chosen by Hon & Chen
 to reflect their Chinese heritage.

They also added a lovely little detail to the back, a Chinese calligraphy
 motif which means 'double happiness'

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.

A Golden Wedding with a Difference!

laser cut golden wedding invitations

Judy & David celebrated their 50th Golden Wedding Anniversary last September with a garden party. They came to us to create unique laser cut event invitations to invite and surprise their friends & loved ones with something a little different. The invitation was to include two giraffes, a lady & a gent (Judy’s favourite animals!) with some ‘Golden Wedding’ bunting. They loved it.. so did all the guests!

Here’s the finished design, cut in a shimmer quartz card with a gold leaf inlay.

The invitation design inspired the cake design..

We  also made lollipop table names so they could be popped into pretty jam jars filled with flowers on each table.

Marston & Langinger’s Magical Winter Garden

When asked by the lovely Ali, the designer for Marston & Langinger (who make stunning glass garden rooms) to laser cut & make their gorgeous corporate Christmas cards, we jumped at the chance.

Ali really loved the idea of laser cutting & had wanted to do something for a long time using it, this was her first opportunity!

With designs under way it was really exciting for us all to see the finished design start to materialise.

 Here’s a few pics to show you the finished Winter Garden Christmas card.

Laser cut snowflakes!

We were delighted to be asked to make laser cut Christmas cards again this year for the lovely people at Kirei.

The finished cards have a delicate snowflake laser cut to the front & are printed inside with a Christmas message. Each card is finished off with a festive red envelope.

Here’s a few snaps we took before they were wrapped & sent on their way to be written!

Laser cut Floral picture frame invitations

When Gaynor came to us to create wedding invitations for her & James she knew that she wanted a design which was unique to them whilst still having our distinctive handwriting. She liked the idea of it featuring their initials & being framed as a picture would be. We took her thoughts & added our Hummingbird style to create an invite featuring beautiful flowers & swirls.

The finished invitation is three layers tied together to create a card which can stand or be hung up (like a picture!)

We also cut Gaynor a wooden artwork piece created from her design so she could frame it & have a permanent reminder of their invitations hanging on the wall!

Laser cut Country garden wedding invitations

Remember Lisa & Iain’s paper picado inspired Save the Dates we blogged about way back in December?

Well, Lisa & Iain married last Saturday!

We thought we’d take the chance to show you a couple of other items from their bespoke order..

Their country garden invitations were A5, folded style with the front layer laser cut with a silhouette couple holding balloons, framed by intricate trees & small flowers. The words ‘The wedding of Lisa & Iain’ were laser cut in banners amongst the design too.
