real wedding invitations: kristina + justin

Yesterday Spring had well and truly sprung here in Melbourne… today it’s rained non-stop! But to cheer ourselves up, we have a stunning wedding to share, featuring some gorgeous foil press wedding invitations that we designed and printed for lovely couple Kristina and Justin.

Kristina and Justin celebrated their day at the stunning Port Phillip Estate, a very modern, minimalist and stunning space, and they wanted their invitations to reflect the style of the venue.

They loved our Modern Love design and it turned out that the font is the same as the font that the venue uses for their marketing materials, so there was a perfect match right out of the gate!

Kristina and Justin wanted a very classic but contemporary black tie affair, and chose a palette of clean, crisp whites with touches of copper throughout the wedding.

After a little deliberation they settled on our Modern Love invitation, printed in striking copper foil, and paired with reply cards and gift cards in digital print with simple black text.

We also had the pleasure of designing and printing their order of service booklets (stitched down the spines with stunning copper thread!) and menus.

Some black tie weddings can feel a bit stiff and formal but this one is all modern elegance, and a perfect match for our Modern Love invitation. We love the simplicity, the touches of copper, Kristina’s gorgeous dress, and those sculptural black bridesmaid dresses – definitely dresses that will be worn again!

Thank you Kristina and Justin for entrusting your stationery to us, and we wish you all the happiness in the world xx
