Nesting. That’s what these invitations evoke. They’re modest, yet beautifully executed and they do a really good job of giving an identity to the couple. I love the vintage cloth tag satchels. There’s a lot of personality within this spread. Also the photos have log cross-sections! An instant win.

I wanted to stay clear of the clichéd script faces and it was important that the invites reflected the ‘vintage’ casual style of our wedding and tied in with the ‘yellow’ theme. I think this was achieved with the use of the ‘cutesy’ italic typeface and the beautiful effect of the letterpress printing.

The luggage tags were personalized using a typewriter and the reverse was used to hold all the extra information like gift list, etc. Luggage tags were also used throughout the wedding for name places, cake descriptions etc.

It was decided early on that we would use bunting to decorate our venue, so to compliment this I selected 8 of the same vintage and reclaimed fabrics to make pouches to house the invites. The idea was that when people arrived at the venue they could find ‘their’ fabric in amongst the bunting.

This project taught me how difficult it is to be ‘creative director’, ‘designer’, and ‘client’ all at the same time!

To complete this project I also had to learn how to use a sewing machine! As well as making 200 pouches to contain the invites themselves, I also produced around 150 meters of matching bunting to decorate the venue.
