Pic-nic Proposal

Summer weddings this year have been full of surprises and when Charlotte gave us a call with her own ideas for wedding stationery, they were beautifully personal!

Charlotte said ‘the design idea came from the place where my fiancé asked me to marry him. Its was a beautiful summers day in July, the day before my birthday and Alan had arranged a surprise picnic in Derbyshire, Lathkill Dale. There’s a river that runs alongside the walk, with a romantic waterfall where we pitched up with a hamper of goodies. Little did I know what goodies were inside!’

 Charlotte’s sketches were turned into vintage laser cut invitations for the day and a beautiful print for the evening invites.

 The swans were added to the design, as her married name will be Charlotte Emily Swan!

 They’ve gone for a ‘Vintage Chic’ theme, using a soft dove grey as the main colour and used a palette of  pastels, such as lilac, peach and pinks to add a touch of colour.


Other lovely personal touches to the day have been carefully considered such as Sweet Peas in her bouquet as Alan’s Great Granddad was a chief sweet pea grower.

    There’s lots more but the guest will just have to wait and see!
