real letterpress wedding invitations: rei + damon

Happy Sunday all. We’re excited to have a gorgeous wedding to show you today, featuring some beautiful letterpress wedding invitations that we designed and printed for lovely Melbourne couple Rei and Damon.

Their day began with a traditional Cambodian tea ceremony at their home with their closest family and friends, and was followed by a romantic ‘first look’ at each other on Parkdale beach (I must admit I love this idea – it’s a great way to calm the pre-ceremony nerves I think!) This was followed by an elegant ceremony and reception at Rippon Lea Estate and Gardens in Elsternwick.

Rei and Damon fell in love with our Calypso design, and decided to customise it to their taste by changing the fonts and shape (from a classic rectangle to a large square – we love it when clients choose to customise our designs in this way! And changes such as this can be done for no extra cost.)

The result is these beautiful letterpress wedding invitations, which we letterpress printed in soft grey ink onto 100% cotton ivory stock, and paired with matching envelopes, lined with our gorgeous solid gold envelope liners (love the stylish mix of grey and gold!).

We also created matching digital print reply cards and gift tags for their guests, bound with silver eyelets and metallic gunmetal twine.

We love how Rei and Damon’s wedding invitations reflect the subtle vintage style of their day, but with a fresh, modern feel. And for a wedding at a historic property like Rippon Lea, a letterpress invitation – with the sense of history and timelessness it conveys – is the perfect introduction.

We love all the details and personal touches that Rei and Damon incorporated into their day, including that beautiful tea ceremony (such a lovely way to include family and tradition) and their first look at each other on the beach.

Rei and Damon, it was such a pleasure working with you for your wedding stationery and we wish you all the very best for a long and happy married life! xx
