We’ve  been really looking forward to sharing this exciting new bespoke design with you.

Here’s the story…

We first met Tamara and Mike at the National Wedding Show in Manchester in February 2016. Their brief was to create a school book style invitation as they were getting married at The Great John Street Hotel, which was a former school house. Tamara was great as she knew exactly what style she was looking for and I couldn’t wait to get started. To get the ball rolling we created a neat A7 sized save the date, incorporating old school style doodles along the lines of  ‘Mr & Mrs Forever’ on a chalkboard background. A magnet was attached to the reverse of the save the date so guests could pop it on their fridge, just to keep the important date well and truly in mind.

A few months after the save the dates were designed, printed and posted out it was time to make a start on the wedding invitation. This took the form of a booklet that imitated the look of a school exercise book. The design incorporated the doodles from the save the date, to ensure the theme was carried though and the pages were made up of lined and graph paper. The invitation even included original school photos of the couple, which was a lovely personal touch.

At the back of each invitation there was a pocket which held a library card style Rsvp and return envelope and also ‘a note to the bride a groom’ tag. Guests were asked to fill in the tag and post it back with the Rsvp so they could be used to decorate the venue. We thought this was a great idea.

Following the invitation we also produced Tamara and Mikes on the day stationery. This included a table plan, order of the day, table menu and order of service, all of which followed the school theme.

Hope you like it!

We recently completed a wedding invitation order for the lovely Hayley and Darren who get married later this year.

I met Hayley at the Autumn National Wedding Show in Manchester in October last year. As their reception venue is a rustic style barn in Cumbria they wanted their invitations to complement this, so they chose from our Vintage Floral collection, however, Hayley asked if they could have their invitations as a set of three tag style cards tied with raffia twine rather than what was available on the website. This was no problem at all and we adapted the design to suit them. Their colour palette was berry tones with a touch of navy blue which suited the floral design perfectly.

The invitations are now all done and dusted and have been sent out to Hayley and Daren’s guests.

I received a lovely message from Hayley when she received their invitations to say:

“Just to let you know that the parcel arrived today.
Thank you so much we both love them, they are just so pretty!”

We hope you like them as much as we do.

Letterpress printing is an amazing way to bring a simple wedding invitation to life, giving it a luxurious, high quality finish.

Laura and Cody were married in July this year and commissioned me to design and print their bespoke Letterpress wedding invitations. Each invitation set included an A6 wedding invitation and A7 Rsvp card, both with printed envelopes. The design incorporated their own personalised crest and an illustration of the their wedding venue. Each invitation and rsvp card was printed using the Letterpress process, in black ink on to Saunders Waterford 100% cotton paper. They were a great success and looked amazing as a set.

The couple went with a gorgeous simple but glamorous style which i’m sure you will love. Their beautiful wedding photos are courtesy of Chris Semple Photography.

A massive congratulations to Natalie and Greg who were married on Friday 16th August 2013 at the Saddleworth Hotel, Oldham.

It was fantastic working with this lovely couple on their wedding stationery, especially as they were Love Invited’s very first official customer. Their wedding was to be sweetie themed, so the Sweet Heart wedding stationery collection from Love Invited fit the bill perfectly.

Natalie and Greg wanted to notify their friends and family of their wedding date as soon as possible so they chose to send a save the date. The Sweet Heart save the date is based on a lolly pop and it looked perfect in their colour scheme of lavender and coral, finished off with a coral polka dot bow, all mounted on a wooden lolly stick. This save the date was a great way to introduce their theme to their guests.

Natalie and Greg also ordered the A5 wedding invitation which came in a striped sweetie bag style wallet, both featuring their own customised monogram with an additional information card, menu options card and rsvp.

For the day it’s self they also had table names based on classic sweets, place cards printed with their gusts names and a beautifully framed and mounted table plan in an ivory swept frame.

You might remember the blog I wrote a few months ago about Andrea and Ed who were getting married in the Manchester Museum, under the T-Rex skeleton? Well they did on Saturday 14th September, so I would like to congratulate the new Mr & Mrs Shaw.

Andrea and Ed chose form the Love Invited Royal Elegance wedding stationery collection, however, they wanted to personalise it a bit and tie it in with their venue. I did this by simply replacing the crown with an illustration of an ammonite and removing the swirl design, which worked beautifully. Their colour scheme of charcoal and gold was also a perfect match to the day, keeping it simple and elegant.

Their order consisted of a 6 page folded invitation with a tear off post card rsvp. This format is great as it gives plenty of room for additional guest information, without having to include lots of separate cards. Each invitation was also hand finished with a little diamate place on the front just under their names.

For the day they dressed the room with simple double sided order of the day cards, detailing the running order of the proceedings, along with table numbers, menus and an elegant mounted table plan.

Well I have to say Andrew and Chelsey’s wedding was a magical day and as the groom’s sister, Maid of Honour and of course wedding stationery designer I can confirm everyone had a wonderful time! The whole day went without a hitch, even our 18month old little boy Sam didn’t seem to distract, with his shouts of ‘hiya’ from the front row!

Andrew and Chelsey live over in Canada and chose to get married back in Yorkshire where we grew up. So due to the distance and the time difference, all the planning had to be mostly done over email, which worked surprisingly well.

Chelsey wanted to achieve a rustic vintage countryside look to their wedding stationery and overall theme. The colour palette for the day was a lovely combination of peacock blue, sunshine yellow and turquoise. The design was beautifully simple with illustrated bunting complemented with a hand drawn typeface.

Their wedding invitations were a set of three stepped cards consisting of  the main wedding invitation which was the largest at A6, then a guest additional information card and rsvp, with a lovely peacock blue post back envelope. All elements were printed on a recycled paper stock called Ellie Poo – that’s right, it is made from ‘you know what’! The wedding invitation sets were hand finished with a length of cotton lace, tied with a twine bow to add that bit of rustic charm.

For the church service Love Invited produced an 8 page A5 Order of Service which continued the rustic vintage theme.

Chelsey’s attention to detail was amazing, The Stone Trough Inn, where the reception was held, was decorated with Chelsey’s hand made fabric bunting which perfectly complemented the little guest place tags made for the miniature jars of strawberry jam, homemade by our Gran and the tent card table numbers.

A big congratulations to Jessica & Dan who were married on Saturday 17th August 2013 at Bradbourne House, Kent.

Jessica was a pleasure to work with and I was so excited to receive her order for the Viva Las Vegas wedding stationery range especially as she didn’t want to change a thing, apart form the necessary details that is!

The Viva Las Vegas wedding stationery collection is themed on a playing card, you even have your own customised suit monograms in each corner . The main feature of the Viva Las Vegas collection is the personalised ‘Welcome to the fabulous Las Vegas’ .

Jessica ordered the A6 invitation with the matching wrap to hold together the invite, additional information card, menu options card and rsvp. Jessica also opted for red envelopes rather than the standard white ones.
