When first approached by Sandie and Vince to be involved in the creation of their stationery I was thrilled, not only because the wedding itself sounded utterly delightful – set in a sleepy French village on the Northern tip of Dordogne, but also because the design they had in mind was inspired by the lavender of the neighbouring Provence area. This offered the perfect opportunity for me to update my ‘Lavender Love’ range whilst providing them with a design that was totally built around their requirements.
It began with Save the Date postcards, each strung with handmade paper bunting featuring their initials, and finished with a magnet on the back for guests to attach to their fridges’ and admire for the months to come!
When the time came for the invitations, we decided to introduce a new and more ‘romantic’ looking font and Sandie decided she would like a square format. For a classic look the invitation was devised to be an opening card with matching satin ribbon strung along the spine. As is the case with weddings abroad there was a lot of information to include covering travel and accomodation. Thus we chose a double sided paper insert with a lavender watercolour wash, this was trimmed to square so that when folded it fitted neatly inside the invitation. In addition each invite included a double-sided RSVP postcard which featured the same yellow and lavender bunting as the Save the Date, bringing the whole package nicely together.
With it’s delicate colour, beautiful scent and being native to the UK too – Lavender continues to inspire many a wedding theme. Links to all the images above can be found on my Lovely Lavender Wedding board here on Pinterest.
