wedding stationery for a wedding tomorrow

I'd like to wish Emma and Bryan a special wedding day tomorrow and a very happy future together.

We produced all their stationery for them, including handmade wedding invitations, place names, table plan and table names.  They chose the Leonardo collection in honey gold.  Great for a winter wedding!

This is what they had to say .....

"A seamless service from start to finish. We are both thrilled with the wedding stationery and look forward to the finished effect on our tables for the 20th December. Thank you Elaine". Emma and Bryan

Christmas tree wedding favours

Saw these gorgeous little Christmas trees on cute boxes, even though they're a Mini Tree Advent Calendar , I thought the idea would make fantastic wedding favours. 

Labels personalized with your guest names and coordinating with your handmade wedding invitations....chocolates, cake or sweets could be added in the boxes to make an interesting favour at a festive wedding.

what we've been working on recently

We been working on some rather sophisticated stationery for a wedding this month and thought they deserved a mention....

(above) These are a sneak preview of them in the early stages before all the tables are added to the table plan and finished, place names are sorted into individual tables and bagged together, order of service need bows to be tied and table names finished off.

 (above) These are the table names finished... very elegant you must admit?

We worked with our client on her handmade wedding invitations, information and reply cards prior to her reception items. She chose the Kidman collection in black.  I will post some more of her stationery soon.

Bauble place names

We've just finished these tiny weenie place names for a wedding this December. 

Measuring only 40mm x 25mm, they are smaller than our normal place names and are so cute .  Our customer asked if we could design them to match her Kidman handmade wedding invitations and to fit perfectly into baubles she has bought for her wedding tables.  

They'll look something like this when fully assembled...

Don't you agree, they are perfect for a Winter Christmas wedding?

Teal coloured wedding stationery

We've just produced a sample pack using the Munroe collection in Teal and thought they deserved a mention. 

These are the results...

above: Munroe luxury wallet in teal

above: Munroe day or evening invite in teal

They make a very strong statement and excellent for a beach or summer wedding.

August Restaurant - wedding venue

What about this interesting restaurant in Greenwich Village, New York for a wedding venue with a difference....

August restaurant provides the ideal setting for a superb intimate wedding. They can accommodate up to 50 guests in the garden patio. 

Much of it's charm, described as 'urban rusticity', is due to it's distressed plaster walls, cobbled flooring and a feeling of being-there-foreverness.

Lights entwined with grape vines

August restaurant offers European cuisine, with influences from Mediterranean to Northern Europe with an emphasis on local and seasonal ingredients.

If you're lucky enough to use August as your wedding venue, don't forget your reception items - table plan, place names, table names/numbers and napkin holders.  We can match any of these items to your handmade wedding invitations for a coordinated look.

The Life of Pi

Having just finished the excellent book .... The Life of Pi by Yann Martel, I am thrilled to see that the film of the same name will be released 20th December 2012 (UK).

For those who haven't read the book...a story of a teenage boy named Pi, a zookeeper's son from India, is shipwrecked on the Pacific Ocean with a hyena, zebra, orangutan, and a Bengal Tiger. 

It is directed by Ang Lee of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Broke back Mountain fame.

I can't wait till it's out and will undoubtedly by taking time off after all the  handmade wedding invitations and stationery are completed, to see it.

The Cube by Electrolux

The Cube by Electrolux is described as the ultimate dining experience.  It now resides in London on the roof of the Royal Festival Hall until 1st January 2013.

The chef's table seats just 18 guests and is designed for you to watch your meal being prepared by a Michelin starred chef.  On Sunday, and having time off from producing handmade wedding invitations, I was one of the lucky 18 people to eat there. Chef, Daniel Clifford from Midsummer House in Cambridge produced a meal that I will never forget....pure heaven on a plate!

If you are after something unusual and exemplary - what an amazing venue it would make for a small intimate wedding. The setting and the calibre of the food are so special that your guests would undoubtedly leave very impressed.
