South of France Wedding

At Isabel & Ink we love working on destination weddings so when Tara & Alex approached us to create some unique stationery for their big day in the South of France, we were excited.

We enrolled the talented artist Suzie Foster to help bring together some stunning floral designs starting with a Save the Date. We entwined flowers around the couple’s initials for a bespoke emblem used throughout much of their stationery on the day. 

This led nicely on to the beautiful, fresh, summery invitations...

A hand-painted floral painted border filled with lavender and greenery framing the text and finished off with tissue lined, lemon yellow envelopes. 

The couple celebrated in a gorgeous vineyard in France during the month of August, outside of course.

Alex and Tara spend their summers here so it was only fitting to have their wedding in a place that was special to them both, not forgetting the guaranteed sunshine!

Tara’s dress was one-of-a-kind. An ivory, tulle ball gown with a draped taffeta bodice, curved v-neck and spaghetti straps designed by Hayley Paige.

There were hand-painted, silk flowers on the cascading tiered skirt. In Tara’s own words, it was “a literal princess” dress. We definitely don’t disagree, she looked absolutely breathtaking.

The look was complimented by a bouquet of local wild flowers and rustic blooms – the colours of which matched the silk flowers on her dress.

Alex and Tara married in front of their friends and family in a picturesque setting.

The vineyard provided the perfect backdrop for some very special, post ceremony pictures.

Before the celebrations continued...

We used floral designs from the invitation suite to bring together the table stationery.

The sun set on a truly magical day...

...and the celebrations continued long into the night...


What an absolutely dreamy day to be involved in. Thank you Tara & Alex!

A note from the bride: We met with Izzy fully expecting to meet with a few other designers, however, we loved her outlook so much we didn’t see anyone else after! She was always fast, her creative vision fitting what we wanted perfectly. She accommodated our ever growing ‘last minute requests’ professionally and all of the stationery looked exquisite. Izzy went above and beyond to help us design our perfect wedding suite. In particular, we loved how she ‘got us’ straight away & the vibe of our wedding.
