A Vintage Fairytale
Carla & Michael made an appointment to came to see us at the studio to commission their bespoke wedding stationery, then the fun began!
They are getting married this September at Warwick Castle & have created a ‘Vintage Fairytale’ theme in a rich palette of soft neutrals, chocolate brown & gold.
They bought sketches, pictures & cuttings from magazines along with them & were so full of enthusiasm!
Carla told us ‘I loved the process of doing my own sketches to bring to your design studio. It’s been one of the highlights of planning the wedding so far – & I have my oversized owl up on the wall. It still makes Mike & I giggle that in my drawing the owl was bigger than the castle!’ The most personal touch is the owl which is a subtle nod to Mike’s football team, Sheffield Wednesday (aka, The Owls). ‘I love how this is a personal & subtle nod & it means I can avoid having a white & blue theme!’ Carla said.
The invitation has been personalised with silhouettes of Carla & Mike, initials carved in the tree & of course Warwick castle itself to carry on the fairytale theme with whimsical elements.
Carla said ‘I loved Hummingbird’s idea of putting it in a circle, it’s now like looking into a magical forest glade. It is absolutely perfect!
They have loads of personal touches & surprises for the guests so I have only included the things that I know they don’t mind us sharing!
Best wishes to Carla & Mike for a wonderful whimsical wedding day!
