Kathy contacted me about creating her wedding invitations early last year. She asked if I could include a portrait of her and her betrothed, George. Seeing as they had just welcomed the adorable baby Nancy into the family a few months before, I decided to include her in the illustration also as she’d (in Kathy’s words) “be centre of attention”.​​​​​​​
She had seen an image of an invitation she liked, and wanted something quite rustic, in a pocket-fold style with hessian twine and a wooden heart button on the front. I sourced the buttons (which I love) and made belly bands incorporating the twine in order to make assembling the invites easier for Kathy and George. I sized the invitations at 4x6 inches, once assembled and I think that size suited the style of her invitations.

I made the main invite colour Ivory with an accent colour matching the bridesmaid dresses, with some darker tones as well. I think in the end Kathy’s Invitations were romantic and soft and really suited her and George. They in turn were thrilled with the work and I also had the pleasure of creating their evening invitations, and their orders of service for them. I hope that they had a magical day and pass on my congratulations to them for their newest arrival, little Lyla.
have your big day, your way
