Brittany and David's Wedding invitations

 I'm so excited to share with you these beautiful invitations I designed for Brittany and David.

When Brittany contacted me a few months ago to design her and David's wedding invitations, I couldn't hide the excitement. Her sister Bianca got married a few years ago and that was one of the first invitations I ever designed (click here to view their invites) and still to date, one of my all time favourites.

Brittany and David are a young and vibrant couple that got married this past weekend. I went to the venue in the morning to set up all the special stationery details and must say that everything looked stunning. Thank you to my patient husband for all the help setting up menus and macaroons boxes for each guest and applying the vinyl details to the floors - you really are the bestest.

Today I'm sharing some photographs of Brit and David's wedding invites, which I totally love. The colour scheme for their wedding was gold (my fav), blush pink and white. The wedding invitation suite included a main card that unfold to give a 3D look with a photo taken by the talented Sophie Smith, a details card and a sleeve with gold foil details (gold foil = happiness).

I hope that as soon as the photos from the wedding are edited and developed, I can share them with you as well which I have no doubt will be just stunning.

Happy Monday everyone; hope you all have a great and productive week ahead!

Recent work: Philomena

Today I would love to share a very special project I worked on! Hanna (Slezackova) contacted me a few months ago and asked me to work on the identity of her new business venture.

She realised a gap in the market when trying to shop for her pregnant best friend who always looked fabulous and always with her own unique style. She felt the maternity wear on the market was not up to scratch so turned in desperation to clothes that were not necessarily made for pregnant women but could work. That's when she decided to create Philomena, a designer clothing brand that carefully crafts garments to be worn before, during and after pregnancy for women who do not wish to compromise on style.

In Hanna's own words: "My inspiration came from my best friend Amira Quinlan, as well as people like Victoria Beckham, both of whom always looked fabulous during pregnancy with draping fabrics or short tunic dresses.  I spent a lot of time looking for the right fabrics to compliment the designs. Maternity wear tends to use alot of lycra which gives it a very one dimensional casual look. I wanted to design a range that was still comfortable but also equally as stylish. I realised that meant I must do all the work for my client, she doesn't have to think about it, she knows when she puts on a Philomena piece she can go to a wedding, a cocktail party, a lunch or a walk on the promenade!"

Some of the branding elements I created for Philomena include logo design, business cards, garments tags and social media elements.

Please contact Hannah for more information or to have a look at everything she has in stock as well as the new summer season collection. | Twitter @Phil_Clothing |
