Willie and Lona

Willie and Lona

 

I met with Willie and Lona in September 2017… The first couple I met with after having little Grace. They were so patient with me, as Lona actually emailed me way back in March but I explained baby was due and she was happy to wait.

The couple knew what information they needed but were unsure how to package it in a way that was modern, elegant but clean and sophisticated. We definitely wanted to bring through the red colour scheme, as Willie was Scottish and we wanted some of his heritage to shine through without going down the tartan route. However, alongside that red colour scheme we wanted soft greenery and foliage as that was another running theme for the day.

What we ended up with was stunning! A gorgeous red pocketfold, with prints on the inside on a cool grey. We then brought through the foliage with envelope liners on both the Main Envelopes and the RSVP Envelopes (both were printed on to save the couple time of writing themselves). The envelope liner design was actually a bespoke design based upon the buttonhole for the groomsmen. All this was tied together with rustic string and a little square card with printed initials on.

We managed to fit all their themes into the stationery, but with a very elegant and simple approach. The same was to be said for the day stationery (full imagery to come soon).

It really was such a pleasure to work with this couple!
