An Irish Wildflower Wedding ~ Part I


I had the pleasure of designing my wonderful twin sister's wedding stationery over the last six months - and it was such fun to work on a wildflower themed design. My sister Gillian - from Lost Forest Jewellery - requested a very personalised design, combining her love of botanicals (and her cat Billie), and her husband-to-be's farming career. Irish wildflowers adorn one side of the design, and a cheeky dairy cow, pheasant and apple tree adorn the opposite side. They married in a quaint blue church, which is so endearing I just had to include it in the design. The happy couple sit in the centre of the layout, embraced by nature. I used these elements on the menu also, but instead included the delightful Airfield House, with a plentiful picnic basket below. My next blog post will reveal the DIY projects I made for the wedding, including the peg doll cake toppers (as seen below), and the dainty favour boxes. Stay tuned!

Irish wildflower wedding stationery suite, with cake toppers and favour box. The design was inspired by wildflowers, farming, whimsy, and the Edwardian summer garden party.

Wedding invite, with venue map illustrated on the reverse. All designs were printed on a lovely cream stock.

Irish wildflower postage stamps were the perfect accompaniment for the robins-egg blue envelopes.

Wedding menu, with an accompanying favour 'postal' box. The favour box sat next to the menu on the table and contained a chocolate treat within it. It was inspired by their long distance romance, and the journeys they would take to see one another.
