This was a very small and bespoke project that was enormous fun to do, as this wedding was a surprise – even to the select few who were ‘invited’ – the bride and groom’s parents. As there were only two keepsake invites required, my approach was to make it all intricate and hand-crafted for the happy couple – including their own ident that entwines the first letters of their names.
Both invites are completed with handmade bands and bows with window and door apertures that are augmented with opaque and pearlised stock. The entrance, which is based on my sketch of the Shottle Hall venue, can be removed from the front pocket and doubles as a VIP ticket.
