real wedding invitations: sarah + rabb

Today we’re showcasing the stunning letterpress and foil press invitations that we designed and printed for chic Melbourne couple Sarah and Rabb.

From popping the question in Spain, to tying the knot against the breathtaking backdrop of Bali, this was a truly magical wedding for the jet-setting couple.

Sarah and Rabb came to us wanting a striking invitation that would complement the tropical setting of their Balinese wedding. We settled on a custom designed suite featuring a gold foil flamingo, and navy letterpress text set in a modern typeface.

We printed the luxurious double-sided invitations onto ultra-thick 600gsm bright white cotton stock, which came with an info card, reply postcard and wishing well card to make up the suite, all letterpress printed in navy to match.

We also had our beautiful calligrapher Betsy at Lemontree Calligraphy to letter all of the guest names and addresses onto the envelopes, in matching deep navy ink – gorgeous!

After the wedding, we printed Sarah and Rabb’s digital print thank you cards, featuring a beautiful photo from their day.

In Sarah’s words:

“We love a good party and for us one day was simply not long enough to celebrate. We wanted to create a wedding festival. We also love Bali so we decided to combine the two – a wedding festival in Bali. We arranged three official events: a welcome dinner at our favourite restaurant Sarong, the wedding at Khayangan Estate, and finally a recovery pool party also at Khayangan.”

A three day ‘wedstival’, this incredible wedding featured breathtaking scenery, gorgeous styling and a focus on great food, music and fun.

In one word: WOW. This wedding is stunning on so many levels and we love how our gold flamingo even made it onto those beautiful cobalt blue napkins! Don’t get me started on Sarah’s incredible Steven Khalil dress, which with a clever removable bolero, went from long sleeves for the ceremony to sleeveless for the reception, perfectly suiting the Balinese climate.

Thanks Sarah and Rabb for entrusting us with your wedding stationery – it couldn’t have turned out better! All the best for married life xx
