This was a really fun brief: this stationery was for an African fiesta themed wedding dinner. I designed a table plan, table names, a menu and personalised place cards. Each table was named after an animal with accompanying black ink line drawing and we had a elegant matching menu.
A few of the ambitions I entertained on New Year’s Day: a daily sketchbook project (with monthly themes!), weekly blogging, sewing my summer wardrobe…
But then my inbox happened – so many wedding stationery enquiries! Since then I have been working day, night and weekend. December was pretty crazy as well. When you’re in the midst of it, nothing sounds better than a netflix marathon duvet day on the sofa, but actually seeing all of the finished printed projects is hugely satisfying, as is the lovely feedback I have had from clients.
Tomorrow I am having my first full day off work since the Christmas break and oh my god I can not wait!!!
Pictured is just a selection of what I have been working on. I am freeing up now so if you are considering booking me for a project then I can most likely fit you in.
Congratulations to Clare and Kerry who were very recently married at Wiston House in Sussex! I have been really lucky to work with Clare and Kerry on their wedding stationery and I love how it has all turned out. I created a gatefold invitation along with an information sheet and RSVP postcard to send to guests. I illustrated, in a simple line drawn style, their church (St James the Less Church, North Lancing) and their wedding venue, along with some hydrangeas for the RSVP and rear of the gatefold.
In addition to the items photographed we also created a large A2 table plan with an illustrated hydrangea border and a hand bound order of service using their church illustration on the cover.
I am very lucky that every so often friends will commission me to create artwork to give as a special gift. This commission was for a couple who were recently married in Cornwall at the very romantic Cornish Tipi Weddings. I hope they loved it!
