I’m really looking forward to this wedding. A dear friend of mine is getting married and I can’t wait to see what she has planned for her day. She is getting married under a tree at a beautiful vineyard. The tree has featured strongly in the invites and was on the save the dates too. (Check out the blog about the save the date here)
So excited to see what their day will bring. I was really excited to get the invite in the mail and see the way that the ‘love tree’ has featured.
Be sure to keep an eye out for the blog all about their special day.
I received a ‘save the date’ in the mail for a wedding that I am also conducting the ceremony. It is just stunning, very simple and lovely and it just has the most beautiful warmth to the image. I know a lot of save the dates now are just words or illustrations on a page, stunning and simple. What I love about this one is the image of that tree. There is something special about it. I know that it is going to be a very special part of the day with the ceremony being held underneath its branches. I am so looking forward to this special day and all that it holds.
Just on another nerdy photographic note. The paper stock that these are printed on gives the photo such a beautiful warmth. I can’t wait to see what the invitations themselves look like too.
Cindy and Shane included a wonderful information sheet of where there guests could stay and some information about a bus service that will be operating on the day too. Such wonderful and considerate ideas.
I am lucky enough to be conducting a baby naming in the New Year, of a very special little lady-pants. I was honoured to be able to conduct the wedding of her parents last year. (See the blog about Dan and Kate’s beautiful day here.)
Kate and Dan know that it is a busy time of the year and that some of their family go away, so they have decided to send out a baby naming save the date. They will be having the baby naming to coincide with little lady-pants’ 1st birthday, it is a great idea to combine the two events.
Those of you who read my blog regularly will know how much I love a great invitation and I just had to share how fun this save the date was. I’m looking forward to sharing with you all about her naming day too!
Jim and Gemma’s wedding is coming up and I got the invite in the mail a while ago. I previously blogged about their save the date card, but the wedding invitations are just lovely. If you read my blog regularly you will know how much I love a good wedding invitation. I think they can be a great way to let people know the style or theme of the wedding, and just another way to let your personality shine through. You can see their save the date cards here.
These invitations are a fantastic example of this. Jim and Gemma are having there wedding out at Healesville Sanctuary. For those of you who don’t know Healesville Sanctuary is a zoo specialising in native Australian animals, which also has a history of breeding native animals. Jim and Gemma love the outdoors and animals and this is a great way for them to show this to all of the people that they have invited.
They have not only found some lovely invitations that reflect the style and theme, but they have put a lot of time into giving their guests all of the information that they may require for the day. They have guests travelling from all corners of the globe to share in their special day and they haven’t forgotten a thing on the information sheet. They have included a map, information about accommodation, information about a shuttle bus service that they have organised (due to unreliable taxi’s in the area), information about people bringing their kids, down to helpful information about comfortable shoes. They have also given guests information about a dinner the evening before and a brunch the day after for people planning to make a weekend of it all.

Courtney and Tim are getting married in November. They are not just having a Wedding but they are having a ‘Wedstival’, a wedding crossed with a festival. I have been following Courtney’s ideas on Pintrest and am loving talking about wedding things when we catch up. Not only does she have amazing ideas on her Pintrest but she had designed all of the wedding invitations herself. She did the illustrations for her save the date cards too. From the date cards, I knew that the invitations would be great.
Courtney is really artistic and has had work published in Frankie magazine on a regular basis, and now has her own Etsy store full of her beautiful illustrations. So when I got to see the invitations I wasn’t disappointed. I love opening an invitation that is an experience, not just beautiful. I hope the photos do them justice. I look forward to blogging all about their Wedstival and sharing their special day with you.
You can have Courtney make maps for any occasion, or contact her about any illustration work through her Etsy store. Check it out here.
