Provence Wedding Invitations and Stationery

Today I wanted to share some more photos I have taken recently of bespoke work. Last year I worked on Claire & Daniel’s bespoke Provence wedding invitations. At the moment I’m working on some reception stationery designs for them so it was lovely to revisit the design. I drew a sketch of their beautiful Provence wedding venue and then incorporated that into their stationery. Adding an olive branch and rose design to create the perfect Provence wedding invitations.



Their invitations came in both English and French versions. I’m always more than happy to do this for client’s. I’ve done lots of invitation suites in the past in various different languages. As long as client’s can send me over the wording in their chosen language. I can then use it to produce proofs in as many languages as they want. I obviously can’t read all these languages so the proofing process becomes even more important! In the past I’ve done invitations in South African, Italian, French, German and Polish for clients.

watercolour wedding invitation with cat illustration

Today I’m sharing another of my bespoke designs. The design for Sammii and Adam was a watercolour wedding invitation in style. Incorporating a hand painted illustration of their gorgeous cat! I met them ( Sammii & Adam that is … not the cat! ) at the Westpoint wedding show in Exeter back in October. They really liked one of my existing designs with its watercolour floral illustrations. They wanted though to incorporate some personal details and their colour scheme of pinks and greens. With one being from Cornwall and the other from Devon I used crossed Devon & Cornish flags on the belly band. I then did a painting of their cat wearing a bow tie sitting in amongst all the flowers they liked. He will be forever known in my head as ‘dapper cat’ as he looked so adorable in the bow tie!


I love creating invitations that are totally personal to the couple and their wedding so this was a fantastic brief to work on and I think the results were really lovely and the invitations were still pretty and elegant as well as fun.

The watercolour wedding invitation was accompanied by a matching rsvp and information card. It was then wrapped in the belly band and came with a crisp white envelope to match the card.

I can then change the colours of any range to suit you.

Classic Ivory and Pink Lace Wedding Invitations

I love sharing with you bespoke work that I have done for my clients. Mari-Anne wanted a classic ivory and pink colourscheme with lace for her wedding at Berkeley Castle this year, so I designed some really pretty invitations wrapped in lace and a monogrammed tag to match the theme. The secondary text was done in a very classic gold colour which is also part of their colour scheme.

Day Invitation Packs and evening invitation packs came with a matching RSVP postcard in the dusky pink and an information card in the classic ivory and pink with the lace print I used on all the stationery at the bottom.

Mari-Anne also loved the idea of pre-printed envelopes so all she needed to do was add a stamp and post. I did these on a classic ivory envelope with pink text in a script font.
