Have you bought your wedding invitations yet? I’m very proud to have some of the UK’s top wedding stationery brands as a part of my little team here on the English Wedding Blog and it means I can share new designs and latest collections with you, often even before they appear in the national wedding magazines! Let’s start with a little timeless romance… over to Lisa from Olivia Samuel to introduce a brand new invitation design. I hope you like it! Claire x
A fairytale wedding theme is probably the most romantic theme you can have, and let’s be honest, if you can’t be romantic on your wedding day, then when can you? We wanted to create a stationery range that would be timeless, romantic and capture that notion of a fairytale, without being too sugary sweet.
The shimmer card from the Timeless Romance Collection features a whimsical silhouetted image of a bride and groom in a horse drawn carriage, with delicate trees and two birds encapsulating the carriage. In the snowy background sit more faint trees and a quaint little church. We have added Swarovski crystals to the wheels of the carriage as well as one in the window of the church to give the impression of a winter lit service. The white organza ribbon that sits next to the carriage almost gives a 3D impression of the bride’s veil blowing gently in the wind.
The text is silver foiled by hand in a whimsical font to compliment the image, and whilst we have chosen to word the wedding invitation with ‘A Winter Wedding’, you have the option of ‘An Invitation’ instead.
What we hope to have created is a slightly grown up fairy tale stationery range with all the romance you need, without the saccharin overload.
