Jill and Michael are a lovely couple from Brooklyn in New York. They got married in The River Cafe which is a lovely wedding venue that over looks the New York Skyline. They were really excited to be able to have their wedding stationery personalised to them. Some of the stationery is only in black and white as they decided on getting it letter pressed in locally New York but I still think that it looks lovely even without colour! Their invitation had themselves illustrated along with things that represented them as a couple. Also it included the Brooklyn bridge of course! To match this they had a RSVP card, a Rehearsal Dinner invitation and a Farewell Brunch invitation. We then had so much fun making their table names. They picked 5 places that meant something to them as a couple and the table cards explained why with illustrations. They then had some name cards made which we matched to the style of the Order of Service. The name cards had each name typed in fonts that we had used on other stationery to keep it all matching. I think it makes a real difference opting to have the names printed rather than hand written. Finally we made the Order of Service Booklet. To keep in with the illustrated theme we came up with the idea of using the backdrop of the wedding venue for the front cover. So as people took their seats and saw the views, it matched the cover of the booklet. As Jill and Michael are a fun loving couple, they wanted their stationery to match their personalities. Nothing was illustrated perfectly and not once was a ruler used, but this is just the effect we were going for!

The illustrated collection is unique and takes longer to create, therefore all illustrated stationery includes a design fee. For the invitation it is £150 (one or both sides), or £200 for the set (invitation, RSVP and information card). Any extra illustrated designs are charged at £25 each. These fees are in addition to the cost of the stationery. Please click here for stationery prices and more information.
