Ross & Bronwyn’s Wedding Stationery
"We wanted to put together wedding stationery that would reflect the historic feel of our 19th century venue, but also feel welcoming and happy. I drew inspiration from the type styles of 19th century insurance maps, and paired the ornate typography with linen fabric and a dusty purple & yellow color scheme to give it a warmer feel. By combining letterpress, stamping, and digital printing, we were able to create the set within a small budget. It took a long time to get the type to a point that I felt was finished, but the aesthetic was perfect for our down-to-earth wedding at a classical venue!"
