real wedding invitations: rebecca + shaun

Happy Friday all, and what glorious spring weather we’re enjoying here in Melbourne at the moment. Printing simple, elegant letterpress wedding invitations on our vintage presses, the studio bathed in beautiful spring afternoon sunlight… it’s pretty much my favourite thing ever! I feel like a lucky girl indeed to be able to do something I love so much for a living.

In welcome of the weekend, we thought we’d share some pics of Rebecca and Shaun’s stylish wedding invitations, designed with their gorgeous beachside wedding in mind.

Married at the stunning Cliff Top on Smiths Beach in Phillip Island, Victoria (Victorian brides take note – this venue is a cracker!), Rebecca and Shaun chose our Calypso design, printed in lovely duck egg blue, and paired with our gorgeous nude and white paisley envelope liner. These colours are just perfect for a beach wedding, and so evocative of the sea and sand.

We created a personalised wedding invitation suite to suit Rebecca and Shaun’s requirements, which included a wedding invitation with envelope liner and matching mailing label, reply postcard and wishing well card.

We love how our Calypso wedding invitation feels both vintage and modern at the same time, and seems ideally suited to these neutral, perfectly-beach-appropriate colours – so pretty!

Time was of the essence for Rebecca and Shaun, so we opted for digital print to allow speedy delivery of their bespoke wedding invitations.

We also designed some beautiful ‘day of wedding’ items – matching placecards, welcome sign, menu board and seating chart – for their wedding reception.

And now for some snaps of their stunning wedding day (photography by Jesse Hisco):

Such a beautiful wedding! Rebecca’s custom-designed gown by Jane Hill is utterly gorgeous and we love how happy Rebecca and Shaun look together.

For us, it’s so exciting that our wedding invitations are the introduction to a wedding as beautiful as this one.

Thanks Rebecca and Shaun for choosing us for your wedding invitations, and all the best for married life ahead! xx
