Stationery ideas

I have been busy lately creating ideas for my wedding stationery, besides constantly researching dresses for myself and the bridesmaids, looking at all types of flowers and scrumptious cakes….

I have come up with a few styles, yet I am not too sure if I will use them.

Here are some samples of my designs so far.

 

Pink_&_blue_Save.the.Date.front

Pink_&_blue_Save.the.Date.back2

This design has a decorative feel and I have kept to the colours in my partner’s kilt!

 

Save.the.Date_with_logo.front2

Save.the.Date_with_logo.back

This design has a personal logo, which I could use on other stationery i.e. menus, order of service and thank you stationery etc… It has a more contemporary feel also.

 

Contemporary_Save.the.Date.front2

Contemporary_Save.the.Date.back

I have used the same font style and composition as the 1st design idea and added a bold oval shape as a frame.

 

SAVE-THE-DATE_022

SAVE-THE-DATE_02

In this design, I have softened the colours and concentrated on typography and graphic elements.

For my next ideas, I would like to try adding imagery and experimenting with placing of text.

 

 

Venue Inspiration

Last week I took my camera out to take some pictures of a local church for the wedding ceremony. It’s a pretty church in a quaint village, near to where we live in the leafy heart of Cheshire.

It’s ironic that whilst I was there, it was grey and cloudy and then, when I left and drove back home, Miss sunshine appeared! At this time of year, the autumn colours contrast heavily with the grey sky. That’s what is lovely I suppose, that the leaves add warm shades of oranges, reds and yellows to the somewhat dull and cold backdrop.

Here is just a small selection of the photos I took on that morning, last week:

St. Lawrence church itself! It is situated in Over Peover, near Knutsford, Cheshire.
