Christmas Wedding Stationery ๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿผโค๏ธ

What with the lead up to Christmas and with the โ€˜wrappingโ€™ up of the year, it seemed very apt to end my stream of blog posts on a recent winter/ Christmas inspired stationery suite.

It was an absolute delight to work on this suite from the very beginning, starting with their Save the Dates. We then worked on their invitations, in which we used a burgundy foil for their names to create that luxurious feel to them. As you will see, their theme was very much focused around the red winter berries that you find at this time of the year. These hand painted watercolour berries feature throughout all the stationery and makes everything all lovely, consistent and in keeping with each other. Stationery items included: Save the Dates, Invitations, Table Plan, Table numbers and place names. I cannot wait to see the photos from the Big Day itself- I bet everything looked just so magical and beautiful.

A huge congratulations to Emily on Josh on their marriage, wishing you all the very best for the future.

If itโ€™s that time for you to start thinking about your wedding stationery, then donโ€™t hesitate to get in touch with your ideas and wishes, Iโ€™d absolutely love to hear from you. I will be taking little break from Friday 21st December until Wednesday 2nd January and I will be answering all emails upon my return.

Merry Christmas everyone and a very Happy New Year xx

Christmas Wedding Stationery Shoot with Aqua Florist ๐Ÿ’

christmas wedding stationery

So with the Christmas countdown being very much ON, it was a fantastic opportunity to work with Jo from Aqua Florist on a little festive inspired photo shoot. Jo has been busy busy busy with weddings all year round but at Christmas she finds the time to make these beautiful wreaths, which are filled with bows, ribbons, dried fruits, pine cones and they are just exquisite. I went to visit her at the Aqua Flowers HQ along with my little helper Lewi (the sausage dog- who actually didn't help at all!!) and had a full on day of fun, Christmas and photos!

With Christmas Weddings getting more and more popular, it's a crazy time here at Retro Press- what with doing bespoke Christmas card orders to Wedding Stationery and I just love it! When you think of Christmas inspired wedding stationery, think deep, warm, dark colours with touches of metallic tones running through them. Colour combinations that work very well together: Emerald Greens & Golds, Dark Greys & Silvers, Deep Reds & Golds, Navy & Rose Golds and actually the Brown Kraft paper is very indicative of this Christmassy feel.

Enjoy the photos and please do get in touch, I'd love to hear from you!

I don't mean to Alarm anybody... but it's only 77 days until Christmas! The fact of the matter is,  it's only 11 weeks away & that's going to FLY by. Time to get your Christmas caps on. Whether you're planning a Christmas Party at the office, a Christmas drinks soirรฉe at the house or just some good old fashioned Christmas cards. Let's get organised.

As always here at Retro Press, I pride myself on unique and bespoke design... Christmas is no different and the options are vast. Just as my invitations come with many finishing options & styles; be it foiling, embellishment, paper stocks and sizes. You name it, I can do it. Safe to say my Christmas cards this year will be featuring my newest prized possession (Lewi the Sausage Dog, with a tiny little santa hat on). Yours can feature anything you want; a photograph, a famous family phrase or just something cute and Christmassy.

Bespoke Christmas Cards for SFC Group Events

I'd say that the majority of the work that we do here at Retro Press is wedding stationery... But we do also do a lot of corporate work.
We recently designed some bespoke Christmas cards for SFC Group. They are having a huge Christmas party, mainly for staff. The theme is Moscow in a Winter Wonderland. They are having Vodka luges, snow ball machines and much much more. The brief was to design some colourful/ unique invitations to match the theme and vibe of the evening...

Gold foiled Christmas cards!

It's been a very busy Christmas thus far already.... What with lots of wedding stationery and christmas stationery also. We have designed many bespoke Christmas cards/ invitations this year which has been great fun. 
I'd like to showcase these wonderful gold foiled cards, printed by Retro Press but designed by the lovely Tash at Culpepper & Co. 
Please do get in touch if you've got an idea in mind that you need help in executing.
