This is my FAVOURITE wedding to date. A bold statement I know but honestly just look at the pictures. Yolanda (and Ben) booked IVY OAK DESIGN for bespoke Invitations, stationery and signage. In Jan 2019 we started on the invitation design. Yolanda asked for a boho peachy pink dipped invite with ripped edges and a gold leaf finish. We also added a green water-colour version because there were 5 different elements to the invite set. There was a main invite (A5) the location invite, Order of the day, Accommodation and a RSVP (all A6) Every single piece was ripped by hand and dipped in either pink or green ink then when dry gold flake was applied to the opposite corners. I made 135 invites thats 675 individual pieces to complete that process with. WOW. Feb -April I had no social life but it was so worth it!! We also included a personalised envelope of each guest with a gold wax seal I also made. Wax seals are incredibly soothing to make - just saying.
The location map had a hand drawn illustration showing the guests how get to the remote venue and also where the ceremony would be taking place, where the guests would be sleeping and so on. We also included some illustrations for the order of the day.
After the invitations had been completed we started working on the name cards - again peachy pink hand dipped, ripped by hand gold flake design. As you can see from the tipi photos the name cards matched the venue styling impeccably.
The signage boards were a little trickier to do. The couple wanted to continue the pink theme.. So I went back to my fine art skill set and painted a abstract merge of acrylic paints. I added a little yellow to replicate the gold found on the stationery. I then hand painted the lettering in black paint. The three board sat on our oak hire easels.
This Devon BOHO pink & gold wedding will always be memoriable. Yolanda and Ben's wedding was exacty one week after my own and I remember spending June doing both our signage and stationery along side the other.
