real wedding invitations: emma + stephen

What nicer way to end a week than with a gorgeous real wedding?! Hello May (most amazing source of all things beautiful for the modern couple) recently did a post on Emma & Stephen’s wedding, and we’ve had it on our list for some time also, honoured as we were to create their wedding invitations and order of service booklets 🙂

So today it is time to revisit the beautiful letterpress wedding stationery we created for the lovely Emma and Stephen, who married at Summerlees Estate in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales – together with some fab shots of their day.

First, the invitations…


Emma and Stephen chose our lovely Portland design, letterpress printed in striking cobalt blue, as shown on our website. We created an invitation, reply card, thank you card and matching order of service cover, all in letterpress. So pretty! I think the thank you card, with the super simple heart in cobalt blue – with a perfect deep impression – might just be my favourite piece of all.

And now for some shots of their beautiful wedding day (re-posted from the lovely Hello May) and originally taken by Anna Turner:


Gorgeous, right? I love the shots of cobalt blue that Emma and Stephen injected throughout the day, without it feeling too matchy-matchy. And seriously stunning photography by Anna Turner. Wedding loveliness indeed!

All the best Emma and Stephen, we loved working on your stationery with you xx
