Kate and David live in Paris – so at any moment they can step outside and be in one of the world’s most romantic cities. Their wedding day (just so we can all swoon a little) will include a Montmartre restaurant, the Eiffel Tower, and a river cruise down the Seine.
With a palette of mint green, soft grey and fuchsia, Kate and David wanted their invitations to capture that Paris magic…
I created an invitation suite with an antique Parisian flavour (Kate is a lover of all things vintage). The design draws upon the incredible and distinctive work of the 19th-Century Parisian typographers and ornament artists. This style of embellishment and contrasting classic typefaces was used on all kinds of printed pieces – invitations to grand balls, concert tickets, cards for jewellers, and even letterheads.
The mint and grey inks are letterpress printed on thick cotton card (it takes a beautiful impression) and accented by envelopes in fuchsia and shimmery silver.
A wedding like this… who could say no?
