I starting writing all this spiel, about the bride and groom, about what they'd envisaged... etc etc yadda yadda... but I thought you'd probably prefer me to cut to the chase and show you some lovely pics of my first wedding invite design. Here goes:
And before you ask: NO! I didn't hand cut each one! That would be a tad foolish, and my ricketty old fingers would probably never forgive me. They were lasercut... and a neat job they've done too!
The design features a couple of swallows (swallows had just arrived on their land - groom's suggestion), some bunting (well, a wedding isn't a wedding without bunting, right?), lovehearts (bien sur) and teepees (the wedding is going to be an incredible two-day festival on the land) and - again Doug's suggestion - a 'bum hill'. Yup, he called me and wanted a 'bum hill' which is a feature of the land. I knew *exactly* what he meant and popped a bum hill at the bottom. The paper colours were the bride and grooms choice, I like it. It's nice and earthy. They're earthy kinda people.
So there you have it. A lovely wedding invite for a lovely couple.
Have a GREAT wedding weekend Doug and Claire! xx
I will be adding bespoke wedding invitations, save-the-date, place names etc to my notonthehighstreet shop soon. I just have to sort out the details. If you're interested you can always email me (kyleighspapercuts [at] gmail [dot] com).
I look forward to designing many more personalised wedding invitations in the future : )
