concrete jungle where dreams are made of!

Although I thoroughly enjoy all the prettiness and delicate floral touches that go hand in hand with many of the weddings I am working on at the moment, as a designer, it makes my design week so much fun when I meet a bride and groom who are looking for something with a little bite!

Cue Kelly and Mark who having met me at the Red Lion's Wedding Fair organised a complimentary consultation to design a bespoke invitation.  Over a coffee at Casa Hotel, Kelly and Mark made it clear that they wanted a sleek, modern invite using a black and grey pallet with hints of purple.  Kelly admitted to soft spot for sparkly things, but they were both clear that they wanted something unusual and edgy... but just didn't know what.

After going round and round the houses regarding their jobs, interests and hobbies I finally asked the question that lead us to their theme.  Where are  you going on honeymoon?  The pair literally lit up as they reminisced about their time spent in the Big Apple, so I skipped off happy as Larry (as you do) to sharpen my pencil, poise my mouse and get in the patriotic spirit!

Kelly and Mark are still deciding on aspects of the design from all the options I have sent them, but I am sure their guests are going to love the end result and thoroughly enjoy all the quirky little touches we are putting together to make them 'feel a part of it.... in old New York!!!'

If you would like to set me a challenge of designing something new and exciting, please get in touch via email or complete my Bespoke Stationery Questionnaire on the main website.
