What a joy to be part of a great team of creatives for this styled photoshoot! Last March we created a wedding wonderland in the woods, to show people what a hipster wedding can look like. The assignment was clean, green and down to earth. I was asked to design the stationery for this lovely event.
Working in the woods
And there I was, working behind this tiny antique wooden table surrounded by tall trees. I wish I always had a work place like this, in the middle of nature. It was so much fun to see everyone passionately running around and working so hard. And of course it’s very special to have your work in the spotlights like this. Thanks Cynthia for organising such an inspiring day!
Because the end result is always best when things match, there where lots of phone calls, messages and pictures sent back and forth before the big day. The florist told me that she was going to work with fern leaf. So that’s what I decided to make the starting point for my design. The result is a linocut print with mixed green ink. Every card handmade and completely unique. For the font I choose something simple and classy. All on off-white laid paper.
Complete stationery set
Nothing is as stylish as a complete stationery set, in one coherent style. So next to the save the date, rsvp cards and invitations, I designed cards for the vows. Nobody wants to fiddle with a torn piece of paper during moment suprème right? Vows are also a really nice memory to frame after the big day. To make everything complete I made name cards for the diner table, attached with a golden seal stamp to slices of rustic wood.
Gold wax seal
To make everything even more special, I hand carved a seal stamp in the shape of a fern leaf. That way, to party will already start when guests receive their envelope with golden wax seal stamp on their door mat.
Lots of talent
Take a look at the beautiful pictures made by Liefdesmomenten and the work of all these creative people at the website Trouwplannen.nl. Get inspired for your hipster wedding! To start, a little peak behind the scenes:
