Georgina & Gareth
A Land Rover Save the Date, quad fold invite + drawing every wedding guest
The Main Invites (right) were a fun quad fold. At the top, a watercolour illustration of the couple in one of their favourite spots, complete with the skateboards, and around the edges the watercolour flowers hinted at the colour scheme to come.
Toward the bottom of the invite was a 'map of the day', where we painted highlights of things to come (e.g. the church and the speeches). And we finished them with the RSVP information.
The Evening Invites (also right) were tiny, cute cards that Georgina and Gareth hand delivered. On one side was a small line drawing of the venue and on the other, information about the evening.
Before the Day
The goal was to create something that felt entirely personal; so the guests could almost guess who the invite was from before reading the names carefully hand lettered onto the paper in front of them.
The Save The Dates (left) depicted Georgina's Dad's Land Rover; the vehicle she would arrive at the wedding in.
We painted the car in watercolour and printed it onto a beautiful, thick card. We sent them in long thin envelopes that we can only describe as 'the perfect blue'.
There was a definite boho meets elegance theme at Georgina and Gareth's wedding, which continued into the signage.
Each sign was hand cut to the perfect size and stained to a deep mahogany. After drafting each to perfection digitally we got to work hand painting the lettering and florals.
But the main event was the seating plan. In greens to mirror the bow of the Order of Service and the leaves of the eucalyptus decorating the venue, around 100 envelopes were made and within each, we drew an illustration of every guest.
On the Day
Order of Service tend be a little flimsy, but Gareth and Georgina wanted anything but. These were anything but a rushed last thought; only A6 in size they were beautiful and sophisticated. Printed onto a thick, watercolour-like paper, and hand tied with a sheer ribbon.
The menus and place settings mirrored this elegance; our main aim to consider the aesthetic of the whole table setting. We used the same paper and font as a way to gently tie everything together, and hand lettered each name on a thin slip of paper.
