real letterpress wedding invitations: kate + marcel

Welcome to the weekend! Today we have a beautiful garden wedding – complete with gorgeous letterpress invitations – to share – that of lovely Melbourne couple Kate and Marcel.

Married at a private venue in Mornington, Victoria, and followed by an informal but elegant garden reception at the same location, Kate and Marcel chose our All You Need Is Love design as the perfect introduction to their day.

We letterpress-printed their invitations in classic black ink onto 100% ivory cotton stock, and paired them with matching envelopes lined with our gold honeycomb envelope liners, and personalised mailing labels.

We also created a digitally printed reply card with return address label, and to complete the suite, the couple chose our metallic gold baker’s twine to tie each set together and finished each invitation with one of our personalised invitation name tags, bound with gold eyelets.

We were so thrilled when Kate sent through the photos of their day and to see how our stationery perfectly suited their wedding. As Kate said:

“It’s wonderful that you have so many gorgeous designs in your wedding invitation collection. This allowed us to have the stationery made quickly but also select a design that reflects our personalities and event.”

We love that our All You Need Is Love design was the perfect fit for Kate and Marcel’s day – this design is one of our favourites for its chic simplicity and elegance and we can certainly see how it perfectly introduced Kate and Marcel’s wedding!

We love so many things about this wedding… the relaxed yet elegant garden setting… the fairy lights (oh my god, YES)… the lanterns… the flowers… the amazing looking cocktail food… Kate’s stunning Jenny Packham gown… the very cool dance party at the end… and of course, how happy Kate and Marcel look together.

Kate and Marcel – it was such a pleasure to work with you on your wedding invitations and we wish you all the very best for married life ahead! xx
