yes, I do like to be...
When Emma & Simon contacted me last month regarding their seaside celebration at Scarborough, I was literally bursting with ideas for their wedding invitation design. After going back and forth with suggestions we settled on the concept of a beach hut and I then incorporated little hearts, bunting, sand dunes, pebbles and even tiny starfish and a crab with sparkly eyes.
To be honest I can't believe I haven't designed a beach hut invitation before. They epitomise all the romance of the British seaside along with the quirky details and surroundings that I love to draw!
As with all my designs, the invitation can be printed in any colour you choose, with any of the design features altered to suit your style. And you needn't go for a traditional folded invitation, why not embrace the theme and send your guests postcard versions?
This design would look great with bright candy stripes, or it could be given a vintage twist with a change of font and muted pastels!
So for all those ladies thinking about popping the question today, I suggest you Kiss Him Quick, treat him to a fish supper and snuggle up on a pair of stripy deckchairs. Ooh, we do like to be beside the seaside...
With love (and sand between your toes) Hannah
