Nikki & Jimmi – Erskine, Island Bay, Wellington

Will you, Jimmi, promise to always reach things off high shelves for her?

Nikki & Jimmi, perhaps mismatched in height, but such a perfect match in so many other ways, married at one of the very last wedding ceremonies Erskine may see. Fascinators and hats, midnight ghost hunts, street signs, handmade stationery and decorations, vintage cars and a beautiful and poignant wedding favours. Tears flowed, laughter followed, and the wedding cake was cut with a sword.

Nikki & Jimmi also featured in one of my NZIPP Award winning prints from IRIS 2012 – more to come on that soon!

(This wedding also featured over on Junebug Weddings this weekend.)

Jono & Emma – bespoke invitation design

Jono and Emma were really keen to have a photographic invitation. They had hunted around to find vintage clothing in colours to match their wedding colour scheme of maroon and sky blue. One warm mid-winter day we headed out to the Silverstream Railway Museum to take some engagement photos, which set the scene for their vintage travel inspired wedding. More from the wedding coming soon!

The invitation was a simple card incorporating their colour scheme. It featured a collage of the photos on the front and the wedding details on the back. These details included the web address for the wedding website we also created for them. This allowed them to give more information about the wedding day, the bridal party, show off some more of their photos, and even gave their guests a place to register their attendance.

Amanda & Geoff – bespoke wedding stationery

The main aim of Amanda & Geoff’s day was to have fun and be themselves. Their wedding stationery allowed them to do just that – a whimsical idea designed with scientific precision…

As they are both in science-based jobs we included science undertones in their wedding day stationery. The front of the invitation featured a logo with their initials in the form of elements from a periodic table. As the ceremony was held on Remembrance Ridge high up in the Wellington Botanic Gardens, they wanted to include the garden in some way. So we entwined the logo with green leafed vine, which also featured as decorative pieces on the inside and created a pattern for the back of the RSVP postcard, which was perforated for guests to post back to them.

It was only natural for the seating plan to take the form of a periodic table on the wedding day – every guest’s initials made up an element of the “highly scientific” chart. The guests definitely had to have their thinking caps on to find their place at the Wellesley Boutique Hotel!

Each table had a number with the buffet menu on the back, and each guests place was marked with their periodic element on a card wedged in their fork – a fun way to display a place card.

Lauren & Logan’s wedding invitation

Lauren & Logan wanted a wedding invitation that captured both their love of travel and their different backgrounds – St Louis and Wellington.

Presented in a slightly vintage style based loosely on a 1940s travel brochure, with a teal colour that was consistent with their wedding theme, the design hinted at the story of how they met: working together on a cruise ship.

You guys have told us you want to see more design work on our blog.

You know what? You’re right! Aneta has been busy on various items of wedding stationery, so let’s show it off!

This classic 3 card set, bound with silver cord and inserted in a navy envelope, was the simple and fun style Sabina and Simon were after to invite guests to their wedding.
