The timeless white wedding invitation – Verona
Verona has a gorgeous gatefold wedding invitation as its centrepiece and is an Olivia Samuel favourite. Each item is produced from 350gsm Fresco Naturale board with a delicate clear foil embossed floral pattern and the design comes in a choice of 36 colourways
The English garden wedding invitation – Country Garden
Country Garden is the perfect stationery collection for the quintessential English country garden wedding theme. The gorgeous vintage floral print has a delicate display of blooms which cover the backs of all items in the range and is bordered with a pale pink ribbon bow on the front.
The spring wedding invitation – Cherry Blossom
Cherry Blossom has a contemporary pink cherry blossom print on contrasting black branches and a scattering of small pink butterflies. The design is printed on shimmer board to keep the look delicate which is further enhanced by the white organza ribbon. Cherry blossom is synonymous with the passing of the winter months making this a perfect choice for a spring or early summer wedding
The creative wedding invitation – Butterfly Blossom
My personal favourite, the Butterfly Blossom design has the caption “Wedding Invitation” in gold foil on a gorgeous vintage floral print. The butterflies are adorned with 4 genuine Aurora Borealis Swarovski crystals which capture the light for a beautiful sparkle
The designer vintage wedding invitation – Love Birds
Love Birds is a gorgeous fresh summer design of birdcages and floral patterns in soft pastel pinks and creams. The design is printed on our gorgeous heavy shimmer board and is finished with a sheer organza bow across most items in the range. The floral design is enhanced with genuine Swarovski crystals which add a touch of sparkle and compliment the pearlised board
The vintage lovers’ wedding invitation – Edith
It is the gorgeous shabby chic floral pattern that makes Olivia Samuel’s Edith collection a vintage delight. The pattern is printed on a luxury 300gsm shimmer board and the ivory pearl bow matches the distressed mottled striped background. The silver foiling on the front of the cards are individually hot foil pressed by hand.
The destination wedding invitation – Overseas Wedding
The stately home wedding invitation – Canterbury Damask
Canterbury Damask is in Olivia Samuel’s budget collection of wedding stationery but there is no compromise on quality with any of the materials used. All items in the collection use luxury 300gsm shimmer board with a contemporary damask print. A genuine clear Swarovski Element ™ crystal adorns the front of all almost all items in the range.
The playful wedding invitation – Perfect Pair
With a charming illustration of a couple with a big heart balloon, this invite could have been made with wedding blogs in mind! The wording on the front is perfect for couples whose children are ‘hosting’ the wedding.
The luxury wedding invitation – Classic Script
Using a luxurious heavyweight pearlescent cream board with gold foil emboss the Classic Script collection has a large range of coordinating items from Save the Date cards to table stationery such as menus and place cards. The card used is a 290gsm pearlescent cream board and the text has been gold hot foil blocked with a gorgeous flourishing traditional script typepface.
