real wedding invitations: hanh + matthew

Spring has really sprung here today in Melbourne, and to celebrate, we have a gorgeous wedding to show you, featuring some beautiful letterpress/foil press combination wedding invitations that we designed and printed for lovely couple Hanh and Matthew.

Held at Bather’s Pavilion at Sydney’s Balmoral Beach, their day was simply lovely from start to finish, filled with beautiful details and personal touches.

Hanh and Matthew chose our ever-popular Classique design, which we printed in silver foil press for their names, with the body text letterpress printed in striking cobalt blue. Printed onto 100% cotton ivory stock, the result is these classically beautiful invitations, which we paired with silver-lined envelopes.

We also created matching mailing labels, wishing well card and gift tags (not pictured) and a folded thank you card, all digitally printed.

In the words of the bride:

“We were so happy with our invites and also the amazing service that we received from you! The stationery was perfect for us as we wanted stationery that was simple and clean, yet had a classic, timeless look. The invites were chosen based on my engagement ring which is a blue sapphire – almost identical to the cobalt blue! – and white gold. Also, we used the gift tags that you printed as place cards by tying them to homemade jam jards which doubled as the gift to guests. Everyone loved that touch.”

We were so excited to see Hanh and Matthew’s wedding photos and see how our stationery perfectly fitted the overall style of their day – classic, simple and elegant, with some sparkling touches!

This is such a lovely wedding. I love the gorgeous pink and red florals, Hanh’s stunning dress, and most especially, how thrilled Hanh and Matthew look to be married!

Hanh and Matthew, it was such a pleasure to work with you for your wedding invitations and we wish you both all the very best for a long and happy married life together! xx
