I’m so excited by how the two new ranges I launched last week have gone down! I’m already getting several enquiries about them and thank you everyone for your lovely comments! Last week on the blog I shared the Spring Garden range and now I’d like to share with you more photos and details of the Watercolour Floral range which was also launched last week.
The Watercolour Floral range stemmed from another photo shoot I did for the lovely Elle at Inspire Hire in Cornwall http://inspire-hire.co.uk/ . She styles some amazing weddings here in the South West and has some wonderful things for you to hire on your wedding day as well. Elle was doing a photo shoot for Wed Magazine inspired by Summer Picnics and asked me to design some stationery and invitations to go with the shoot. I of course love designing stationery, whether for clients or for shoots, so jumped at the chance.
The brief was bright and floral so I kept it simple with really crisp white card and really bright purples, pinks and greens in the florals.
I loved the stationery so much I decided it had to be a new range on the website so I designed a full range of matching reception stationery which continues the watercolour floral theme. Placecards have a contrasting hydrangea motif that matches in with the rest of the stationery.
I had so much fun photographing this range with the lovely Clare Kinchin Photography http://www.clarekinchinphotography.co.uk/ at her studio. We kept the styling simple with a white wooden background and some sprigs of bright purple lavender. The aim for the stationery and the shoot was fun and floral but also modern and crisp.
I really hope you like the stationery as much as I do. If you’d like to ask any more questions then please don’t hesitate to drop me an email to [email protected]
Over the next few days I’m going to be showcasing in more detail the new Luxe Collections which I launched on the website on Monday. Today it’s the Stormy Skies range.
Stormy Skies came about when I was asked on a wedding industry forum what I would design in an ideal world based on the trends and styles I would really love to see more of in the wedding world. My immediate thoughts were of something darker and moodier than the usual neutrals and pastels. I love dark colours in my own life,painting interior walls in navys and dark greys, and I wanted to create a collection which incorporated these dark colours but with a softness that was suitable for a wedding scheme. The term Stormy Skies came to me before the actual design and I wanted to create the feel of those amazing inky dark skies you get before a storm with beautiful soft greys and inky blues.
To do this I created a subtle textured effect background in a inky blue and layered this with soft grey hand painted ribbon from the wonderful Kate Cullen.
As with all of the new luxe ranges the Stormy Skies range is printed to really beautifully thick 700gsm duplexed card and comes with gorgeous matching grey envelopes with the option of monogrammed envelope liners.
A full range of matching reception stationery is also available, as with all of my ranges, and is now available to purchase via the website http://knotsandkisses-co-uk.stackstaging.com/beta/shop/stormy-skies/personalised-invitations-stationery-stormy-skies/ . You can also order a sample pack from the website so you can judge the quality for yourself before ordering and check out the gorgeous hand painted ribbons which Kate has produced for me to use on this range of stationery.
I’m really looking forward to creating some luxe Stormy Skies invitations for couple’s weddings very soon!
