One of the best parts of designing wedding stationery is getting to see all the wonderful photos from the big day afterwards.
Vashti & Peter were married on Saturday 20th May 2017 in a stylish and unique London wedding. We worked with Vashti from the get-go to create some very special stationery with some gorgeous bespoke illustrations from her talented friend Eilidh Ho.
We created a map for the main invite with symbols and motifs to represent the different parts of the day. Painted florals were dotted throughout the info booklet, RSVP card and on-the-day pieces.
Stationery was extremely important to Vashti and she shares our love for all things paper! She wanted to make sure that all her stationery was unique and beautifully crafted and that all pieces had a theme and were unified.
Even the RSVP cards!
Wedding guests were taken on a special journey throughout London starting with the ceremony itself in Trafalgar Square.
With the bride wearing a gorgeous dress by Caroline Castigliano.
Following on from the ceremony, guests were transported from the church in a red routemaster bus in true London style. It began to rain a little after the wedding ceremony but a friend turned to the bride and said “a wet knot never unravels”. Wise words!
The journey wasn't over as guests were taken to Westminster Pier and aboard the P.S Elizabethan for the next part of the adventure...
...Sailing down to Putney Pier.
...and off to the reception.
They were met by stunning tables adorned with delicate hydrangeas, earl grey and white roses and succulants in terrariums.
The menus sat proudly on each plate with the guests names scribed by the bride at the top.
We love the fresh, contemporary garden vibe throughout.
Inside the house guests were encouraged to sign the guest book and get creative.
Meanwhile, chefs were busy at work...
Day turned into night and it was time for dinner, encouraged, of course, by the seating chart.
Food was enjoyed by candlelight.
Before everyone danced the night away and the couple's friends and family, young and old, surrounded them in love and support.
"I loved working with Isabel & Ink – totally flexible with my ideas, extremely creative in producing items and so personable." - Vashti
