Yes, you read that date correctly! The most lovely couple Janis and Pete were married on the 10th of March 2012 and we were so privileged to work on their quirky stationery. In truth I have been wanting to post up all the stationery goodies for ages, (about 2 years). When I looked in my calendar earlier this week I saw their 2 year anniversary reminder staring BOLDLY at me and I realized that I hadn't shared their gorgeous pics. So . . . here is a post dedicated to them in celebration. (Better late than never I guess).
Janis and Pete were married in the quaint town of Clarens in the Free State province of our beautiful country South Africa. Their wedding was photographed by Yvette Gilbert and had a country, farm style feel with the cutest details made DIY style by the bride. From handmade, hand sewn heart pillows in the charming little church to the hanging hearts in their dinner&dancing venue.
I absolutely loved Illustrating their darling stick figure wedding logo as well as their sweet sheep logo, these two drawings formed the base of most of their wedding stationery items. The first place we used these icons was in their digital Save the Date. A cute animation sent out to their guests that pointed them to a website that Janis & Pete had personally put together with all the wedding fun to come.
Their wedding Invitations were a single A5 card, they were embossed and each card had fabric flag and a wooden button sewn into the corner. These were then placed into a kraft envelope with a natural twine wrap, a double sided heart name tag and a small sheep and balloon icon stamped into the corner. Janis also included 2 pink heart magnets in each invitation, guests could then use the magnet to stick their invitation to their fridge.
Each guest of the wedding received an "I survived J+P's Wedding" pack. Such a clever idea by the bride, they included all kind of goodies, e.g. tissues for happy tears, homemade biscuits for a midnight treat, a coke, a button badge, Grandpa powder. They were packaged in a brown paper bag with a tag style label to indicate all the contents.
These fill in the blanks "Guest Cards" were used as a smart alternative to a guest book.
