Under the Stars at Anran

16th February 2018 EMMA AND MIKE BESPOKE LASER CUT AND FOILED STARS AND MOON WEDDING INVITATION

When Emma & Mike came to us, they had a really clear idea of the style of invitation they wanted. A wedding is probably one of the most important occasions in anyone’s life! Emma and Mike had chosen their perfect venue carefully after visiting quite a few. Their venue had to feel friendly and fun but at the same be unique, elegant and exciting, to make the whole experience the most memorable it could be. There has to be a few surprises too for their guests. They had decided upon the stunning luxury boutique wedding venue, Aran in the heart of Devon for…

The Floral Monogram

19th January 2018

A new wedding season has started so we have been looking back at some of our favourite projects from last year.  Let’s just say this design for Victoria & Matt was one of those. We love the ‘something old, something new’ tradition and this invite mixes these perfectly. An elegant, romantic floral design, laser cut with trailing roses surrounding a monogram, but the style was modern, a unique pocket-fold.  The invite folded out to reveal the invitation, a poem and all the little extra cards, wedding details and RSVP cards, neatly tucked away in a pretty pocket. The delicate design looked dreamy…

Whimsical Butterfly

11th January 2018 BUTTERFLY f

Some days are busier than others and some days turn out strangely more exciting than others! After a phone call to the studio the HB team were excited by the prospect of a new project. We’d been asked to create some laser cut butterflies to top some patisserie for an afternoon tea event. We started sketching and playing around with ideas for laser cut butterflies to top the mini patisseries being created. These are some of our paper cut prototypes!     Our little winged lovelies headed to London and one of the butterfly designs, in two sizes was chosen in black…

A Blenheim Palace Fairytale

11th October 2017

We’ve had such a busy summer with lots of exciting projects. When Lucy & Daniel got in touch we chatted through their plans and just loved the ideas they were putting together. They had seen our ‘Fairytale Design‘ which they liked but wanted to create something truly bespoke with the same feel as this design. The stunning Blenheim Palace had been booked for their reception so they felt it would be wonderful to include this as a backdrop and to create their own fairy tale wedding invitation design. Both Lucy and Daniel are vets and have lots of animals! They wanted…

Spellbound in Keswick!

19th July 2017

Its’s been a busy old summer with lots of beautiful bespoke designs being created here in the HB studio. We’ve also heard so many amazing love stories, so we thought we’d share a few of them with you. When Sarah and Steve got in touch they loved the feel of our ‘Fairy Tale’ design but really wanted something special and unique that would mean something to them. So they decided to start designing one themselves and sent us some ideas. They had got engaged in Keswick, looking out over the vast Derwent Water lake towards the mountains, on ‘their’ now special bench!…

Paris Love Bridge

17th November 2015

Tying a “love lock” on to the Pont des Arts before throwing the key into the River Seine beneath became a true declaration of love. Faye and James, ‘true romantics’ got engaged and added their love lock to the Paris bridge. But part of the bridge’s railings collapsed under the weight last year, so sadly close to one million locks, weighing 45 tonnes were removed. Last February on Valentines Day Faye and James managed to add their 3rd and final lock before they were all taken away. They asked us to create a design with the bridge to reflect their story with…

Eco crafty…

18th September 2015

Charlotte & Tom came to us with a really clear brief, they knew exactly what they wanted and we loved the idea! A bespoke Eco-craft wedding invitation booklet. Laser cut names in a stencil letter style to the front cover, with insert pages including a photo of the lovely couple which you could see through the laser cutting and a printed invite, all stitched together with pretty pink thread. The bespoke invite and RSVP card picked out the pretty green from the photograph with a water coloured wash to the back ground and little leaf embellishments. Much to our excitement they decided…

Romantic Vineyard Wedding

21st July 2015

Cassandra & Edward had found a truly unique and perfect wedding location, just 20 minutes from Cardiff. A hidden away vineyard called ‘Llanerch Vineyard’ set in the beautiful Welsh countryside. So next was the search for an invitation for a wedding amongst the Welsh hills and the picture perfect vines. This led them to us and the laser cut ‘Garden Party’ design, which they loved but the details of the design with whimsical tea pots and cakes wasn’t quite right. After a quick consultation and chat over the phone we put together some ideas to change the design. The sketches and scribbles…
