Rustic Lace and Hessian Boxed Wedding Invitations

Today I want to share with you some gorgeous rustic bespoke invitations which I finished for one of my clients recently.
The brief was rustic but pretty and so I created some brown Kraft folded pocketfold style invitations with hessian and lace. The clients names and wedding date were printed onto a tag and strung onto the outside of the invitations and then they were all boxed up in brown Kraft boxes, tied with string and a bespoke address label added so they could be posted straight to the guests.
If you would like a similar bespoke design for your wedding please don't hesitate to drop me an email at or check out the bespoke packages on the website

To match this bespoke design I've created a moodboard of wedding inspiration to help inspire your wedding if you like this style ... the style is definitely Rustic but with pretty elements ... so lots of lace, cream flowers etc but with hessian details and rustic touches. I love the jam jar favours stacked up high ...

Autumn And Fall Wedding Ideas

I designed some stationery for a Autumn inspired wedding photo shoot recently .. (I'll be sharing the photos as soon as I'm allowed ) ... and as there's definitely a bit of a nip in the air recently I thought I'd share some of my favourite Autumn wedding ideas on the blog today.

I love autumn flowers .. you can often be so much more creative when you are putting together bouquets outside of the traditional spring /summer season ...

And who doesn't love a man in tweed! Perfect opportunity to dress the groomsmen like country gents! ...

I love unusual arches or aisles for outdoor weddings .. this one would be lovely for a humanist wedding outdoors in the UK ... or (until the pesky rules about outdoor weddings are changed!) use the same ideas to decorate a licensed outdoor pergola or indoor barn area at your wedding venue ...

Finally I'm kind of craving doughnuts and spiced apple cider after seeing this gorgeous wooden dessert stack! ... photo by Amanda Dumouchelle
As I said I'll hopefully be sharing the photos of the Autumn stationery I designed for the shoot soon but in the meantime here is some lovely rustic autumn stationery I designed for one of my bespoke clients.

Bespoke Wedding Invitations with Sketch Of Gorgeous Country House Wedding Venue

Today I'd like to share with you another of the versions of my Perfect Place range of wedding invitations I created recently for one of my clients.
I never tire of designing this range for clients as each time it is slightly different because of the bespoke venue sketch which I do for the front of the invitation.
For Louise & Matthew we changed the background card to a gorgeous plain cream heavyweight card and I drew their beautiful venue in Hertfordshire on the front. For some reason I just love drawing buildings so this one was lovely to do!

You can order samples of my Perfect Place range from my website at and then just email me photos of the place you would like drawing on the front of your stationery.

Tree And Leaf Themed Powder Green Wedding Reception Stationery

Wow what a busy week last week! The launch of all of my new ranges was a massive success ... so thank you to everyone who shared all the news. I also attended the RHS Rosemoor Wedding Fayre on Sunday which was fantastic and I met lots of lovely couples looking for stationery. My new Victorian Garden range ... partly inspired by RHS Botanical prints ... was especially popular!

Today I wanted to quickly share with you some lovely photos that a client sent me recently.
Its always lovely to see any reception stationery I make 'in situe' at a couple's wedding so it was lovely to see Jo's wedding reception with the 'tree' themed table plan, table numbers and cute wedding quizzes I created. She also sent me a lovely photo of her and her 'maids' ... don't they look gorgeous!

This was a bespoke take on my Sketch range which can easily be altered to match your wedding theme with a bespoke colour or motif.

Rustic Vintage Christmas Wedding Invitations & Inspiration

The final range which I have launched as part of my Autumn collection this week is the new Vintage Christmas range and you can purchase samples now from the website at

This is another redesign of an existing collection ‘title’. I’ve had a Vintage Christmas range for a while now but decided it was in need of a 2014 style update! The previous Christmas range was quite dark in colour, and really very ‘Christmassy’ so I decide to go for a lighter more rustic style with subtle Christmas details of holly and tartan in a folded style. Its pretty much the Christmas version of my summery ‘Country Garden’ range … so if you like that style but are getting married in the winter this one’s definitely for you. I also think it works well for any winter wedding even if you’re not getting married in December as the holly print is really very subtle.

Day Invitation Packs come with an internal pocket for information cards and rsvp, and of course there is a full range of matching reception stationery ... including this stylish table plan ...
I've created a rustic wedding inspiration moodboard incorporating subtle tartan elements, with bouquets incorporating cones and berries. Perfect for a subtle Christmas look without looking too themed.

Victorian Garden Botanical Inspired Wedding Invitations & Stationery

The third of the new ranges of wedding stationery that I'm launching this week is the Victorian Garden Collection.

Victorian Garden is a range with a English Victorian botanical feel. A couple I have been working with all year who booked a full bespoke package with me have kindly let me turn their stationery design into a full range for the website as I loved designing it so much!

The starting point for the design was their love of Victorian seed packets and Rhs botanical prints and the gorgeous green colour of their wedding venue literature. So inspired by this botanical theme and thinking very much of Victorian greenhouses and gardens I designed the stationery suite all wrapped up in beautiful white lace with a monogrammed tag.
The range also comes with a full range of matching reception stationery and table plan.
I've shared this moodboard before when I've shared the designs I've been working on for my clients .. but it fits the theme perfectly and so I can't help but use it again for the launch of the new range! It totally sums up the feel I was going for with this stationery ... Victorian Greenhouses, potted palms and beautiful florals.

Pale Blue & Black Vintage Cameo Wedding Stationery Collection

This morning I shared the new Vintage Cameo range in the Blush Pink & Black colourway.
The range also comes in a stylish Wedgewood blue colour mixed with black and white. The pink range I kept very crisp with modern d├ęcor and touches but I thought I'd show the blue colourway with a bit more of a rustic twist to show how this range could be styled for both chic city weddings and also more country affairs.
You can see both colourway options and order samples of the new Vintage Cameo range on the website

As before the invitation pack comes wrapped in a stylish band with a Monogram of the couple's initials and the date of their wedding, and also comes with a full range of matching reception stationery.

I've created a styling moodboard with a few rustic touches to show you how you can make this range fit in with any theme ... but you could just as easily go for a more modern black & white scheme with hints of pale blue for a city wedding.

Tomorrow I'll be introducing the new Victorian Garden Collection!
