I designed these wedding invitations recently for my cousin and his fiancée who are getting married in December.
I was really pleased with the results in the end. They are entirely printed using pearlescent card stock and the envelopes are made from lovely textured metallic papers.
The wedding is going to be held at Castle Leslie – a fantastic venue over in Ireland. The brief was for something traditional that would fit in with the castle theme, without it being too stuffy or old fashioned. They also wanted something that would feel quite christmassy due to the time of year the event is being held, which was why I decided to go for the shinier card stock and metallics.
I think the result is simple but classic. The invitations have been hand finished with the gate fold and the black band around the middle.
Clockwise from the top: Invitation with metallic aubergine envelope, Save the Date cards with metallic black envelope and small details card with a link on the back to the wedding website.
There will be Order of Service sheets printed up nearer the time with a gatefold and black band to match and then I guess the design will be continued through onto the table plan and place settings etc.
