Real Wedding at Cripps Barn ๐ŸŒฟ

I truly love nothing more than receiving wedding photos from the Big Day itselfโ€ฆ It puts everything into perspective and a vision become reality. Itโ€™s amazing to see all the stationery I produce in my little studio come together with all the other wonderful things on the day, such as the flowers, foliage, overall table layout and everything.

This post is dedicated to the awesome couple Claire & Josh who travelled all the way from sunny Sydney, Australia to get married in the beautiful Cotswold venue, Cripps Barn.

They came to me after they had done their invitations and wanted something really special and personalised to them for the wedding day. They had two very prominent themes that they wanted enhancing within their stationery; their love of craft beer & beautiful rustic antlers. As you will see in the photographs below, we incorporated both of these things very nicely into their stationery, with flashes of copper, foliage, watercolour & brown kraft goodness. I had so much fun creating everything, including: personalised place names, personalised belly bands that wrapped around the napkins, an Order of the Day sign, Table Plan Cards, Table Name Cards, menus and Order of Service booklets. Thanks for having all the faith and giving me the creative freedom to produce some really exciting stuff! Congratulations to Claire & Josh, it was an absolute pleasure!

Rustic Day Stationery from the Tailored Collection

I often get asked if there is Day stationery to accompany the the Tailored Collection designs... And the answer is yes! So that includes everything from the Order of Services, the Table Plan, the Place Name cards, Table Cards, Signage, Menus and anything else you can think of. I feel like it's sometimes hard to envision your invitation design translated into these stationery items so I thought I'd dedicate a post to it, focusing on just one of the designs from the Collection; The Blue Thistle invitation.

The invitation design was inspired by the wonderful rustic wedding theme. But I wanted to create something that was rather elegant and something a bit different to the normal idea of "rustic". Printed on beautiful brown kraft card, this design is quite simple yet bold, luxurious and sets the tone for a barn type wedding. There is the option to have it printed on a white card or even a different coloured background, which changes the tone completely.... It's amazing how much the paper stock makes a difference the overall style and vibe. Have a look at the Invitation and Save the Date suite below....

And now for the Day Stationery items... These are from a couple that recently got married at the stunning Great Tythe Barn in Tetbury. As you can see, they decided to go for Order of Service booklets, name place cards, table cards and they also had a table plan too (waiting for photos of this).... Everything is in keeping with each other which makes such a big impression on the Big Day itself. It's that attention to detail that leaves your guests WOWED!

Real Wedding at Cripps Barn ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ’

There's nothing better than receiving the official photographs from a wedding that you've been so involved in... I was very excited about these ones in particular as I had worked closely with the couple from the start (on their invitations) and then I went onto create their unique stationery for the Big Day itself. I just LOVE seeing how everything comes together- it's like a jigsaw puzzle and the stationery being one of the many pieces that helps make this day so special. 
Lisa & Ben came to me about a year ago with their styling ideas and dreams of what they envisioned their wedding to be like... They had already secured their date & venue; the beautiful Cripps Barn, located in the heart of the Cotswolds... So luxe rustic was the vibe; think, foliage, lots of greenery, brown kraft, ("strictly no bunting"), whites, creams and just stylish all over! I couldn't wait to get started! Oh and, they also have a miniature dachshund in which they wanted to feature on the invitations... so here they are to show you where we started our journey...

And now for the pics you've been waiting for... Photographed by the talented Adam Drake...

How amazing?! Everything looks just perfect and I am so happy to have been a part of it all. Now, here are some photo's of the wedding stationery that I created for this wonderful couple. I designed everything in keeping with their invitations, so everything is on brown kraft card and everything has the same feel and look as the invites did. The Table Plan and Order of the Day sign are both laser engraved on wood, so just enhancing the rustic tones of the day, but in an elegant, beautiful way.

Business Stationery for Red Pig Coffee ๐Ÿฝ

Nothing says COFFEE like brown kraft cards... They just seem to go hand in hand with each other. Red Pig Coffee Roasters are a fabulous company based in the Cotswolds that supply rich, glorious coffee to well respected coffee joints all over the country. When they came to me for a little re-brand and help with both the designing and printing of some of their products, I could'nt wait to get my hands on it.
We agreed that foiling their stationery was the way forward. Giving everything a luxury feel to it but keeping it all very much 'earthy' and reflective of their products. 
I have very much enjoyed working with the team behind Red Pig and looking forward to some more exciting things to come! 
Please get in touch if you'd like help with your business stationery... there's a lot to be said for having creating the right tone with your stationery.
