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! http://www.knotsandkisses.co.uk/victoriangardenweddingstationery.html

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. http://www.knotsandkisses.co.uk/sketchweddingstationery.html

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 http://knotsandkisses.co.uk

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 http://knotsandkisses.co.uk

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!

Introducing Blush Pink & Black Vintage Cameo Wedding Stationery Collection

Hopefully you liked the new Tuscany collection of wedding stationery which I featured yesterday and launched on the website http://knotsandkisses.co.uk this week.
Today I'm featuring the next of the new stationery collections ... Vintage Cameo.
This range comes in two beautiful colour combinations - Blush Pink & Black or Wedgewood Blue & Black ... and can be used on their own or mixed and matched if you wish to use both colours.

This morning I'm looking at the blush pink and black colour combination.

I previously had another range called Vintage Cameo when I first started Knots & Kisses, but took it off the website a couple of years ago as I felt it was starting to look a little dated. However, I’ve always still loved the idea of the cameo motif and really wanted to design a range which would incorporate this back into my wedding stationery collections. I love the film ‘My Fair Lady’ and definitely took the ‘day at the races’ scene as inspiration for the black, white and pastel pink or pastel blue colour scheme with stripes.

This range also comes with the Day Invitation Pack wrapped in a monogrammed band … it’s a look I really like at the moment and think works well with a lot of my design ideas.
You can also purchase a full range of reception stationery to match the range including a stylish table plan.
As with previous ranges I've also designed a matching wedding inspiration moodboard to match the new range...

The Tuscany Wedding Stationery Collection - New for Autumn 2014

As promised today I'm sharing the first of the new ranges of wedding stationery which launched on the website yesterday ... Tuscany.

The Tuscany collection started as a request from a photographer who was shooting a gorgeous shoot in the Mediterranean and wanted some stationery to match the theme.  I jumped at the chance as I had some sketches in mind that I had done a while back but hadn’t really had opportunity to use and loved the idea of a really subtle faded blue, sage green and white colour scheme.

As soon as I finished the design I knew I wanted to make it into a new collection for the website!
So Tuscany is a Mediterranean inspired collection with classic florals, including hydrangeas and vine leaves, and a faded blue colour and green colour scheme. Day Invitation Packs come wrapped in a stylish band as a finishing touch with the couples names featured in a beautiful white script style font.
You can order samples now directly from the website at http://knotsandkisses.co.uk
To match the new Tuscany range I have created a wedding inspiration moodboard ... echoing the dusky blues, whites and greens ... and mixed with rustic wood details, old linen and a real outdoor feel.

 Check back tomorrow when I'll be introducing my new Vintage Cameo range.

Wedding Stationery Collections - New Autumn Launch

I am excited as today sees the launch of my Autumn Collections and several new updates to my website http://knotsandkisses.co.uk .
I've been looking forward to sharing these new ranges with you all for several months now, as I'm chuffed to bits with the new designs and really think they take Knots & Kisses forward into 2015!
Along with four new ranges of wedding stationery the website has had a little bit a revamp ... the stationery collections have now been categorised into the Pastels Collection, the Vintage Collection, the Classic Collection and the Brights Collection ... fantastic if you already have a feel or colour combination in mind for your wedding and go straight to the section which you feel would suit you best. Or you can view all of the ranges in one go if you are looking for inspiration!

There is also a brand new section for Digital Invitations which can now be bought directly from the website. Digital Invitations are a great option if you would prefer to print your invitations yourself,
save money by printing on to a slightly lower quality card, or would rather get rid of the
paper all together and go green by sending your wedding invitations by email!
Once you have ordered you will be contacted for the wording you wish to have on your personalised stationery design. Proofs will then be sent via email for you to check over before a final digital file is sent to you in JPEG and PDF format for you to use.

I'll be sharing all of the new ranges in detail, with matching styling ideas and moodboards, over the course of this week .. but to give you a little taster here are images of the 4 new ranges ... Tuscany, Vintage Cameo, Victorian Garden and Vintage Christmas.


Check back over the next few days for lots more images!
