This is wedding stationery that will get everyone’s attention – if you want a dash of luxury, a hint of quirkiness and a sackful of originality, let me show you The Hummingbird Card Company!
They’re a bit of a UK wedding blog favourite having featured on some of the very best blogs I subscribe to… Love My Dress, OMG I’m Getting Married, Whimsical Wonderland Weddings… and with very good reason: The Hummingbird Card Company is creative and inspiring, different and unusual with a choice of designs for every kind of wedding – whether you’re a tad alternative or having a classic, luxury wedding day, you’ll find a Hummingbird wedding invitation that is perfect for you!
I love this framed design with the layered filigree butterflies – it’s incredible how complex and delicate a design can be, and then to layer the butterflies so the wings are in 3D as well… beats Avatar any day. This is a beautiful keepsake or gift – even for anniversaries.
How do they do it?
Every design is created with a beautiful technique of laser cutting, allowing the artwork to be burnt away from the card leaving a delicate lace-like structure. I’d love to be a fly on the wall in the Hummingbird studio for this.
The wedding stationery collection is more than just invitations: I love these little mobile decorations for the way they play with sunlight. Use them as table centres or on a wall feature where they’ll cast a pretty shadow. And make sure your wedding photographer sees them too!
The classic butterfly design from Hummingbird. Instantly recognisable, incredibly beautiful – and as a calligrapher I can’t tear my eyes away from the swirly detailing in the wings… love this! (They also have their own calligrapher at The Hummingbird Card Company… and from what I’ve seen he or she is pretty amazing! Bah humbug.. 🙂
So if you’re looking for wedding stationery that’s pretty enough to please everyone, clever enough to impress all your guests and distinctive with all the quirky charm you could hope for… check out The Hummingbird Card Company.
… and just because EVERYONE else blogged them first, doesn’t mean I love them any less. They’re amazing! I’m just slow. 🙂
