Hannah and Connor first met in Starbucks and really wanted to include this as a fun theme in the wedding.
The wedding venue was a stunning manor house in the Lake District which held a lot of happy family memories.
The brief: OTT but not tacky, romantic and creative, with a strong coffee theme!
SAVE THE DATES
The final design played on the iconic Starbucks cup - a white card with checkboxes of 'ingredients', hand drawn names, tiny star details and a personalised wedding logo stamp inspired by the Starbucks logo. The cards even had a kraft paper band to resemble a cup holder!
My aim was to keep the coffee references clear but still classy, in order to create a beautiful wedding save the date.
Focusing on the stunning landscape surrounding the venue, Hannah's favourite view from the house looked out across the lake at Derwentwater.
The invitations consisted of three cards fastened together with a die cut front card to resemble a simplified silhouette of the window at the manor house. Looking through the window you see a watercolour illustration of the view and details in gold hot foil print.
The information cards in the set displayed another watercolour illustration, this time a panoramic view, with the text continuing across the pages in hot foil print.
Finally, the envelope - not to be forgotten! I added a simple line drawing of the Lake District scenery and a sage green envelope with the couple's wedding logo printed in gold on the reverse.
The three day wedding weekend required a lot of attention to detail. Using elements from the save the dates and invitations I created a wedding brand for Hannah & Connor, repurposing the illustrations, logo and fonts throughout, as well as introducing new elements and colours.
