Dawn and Paul

I received an email from a very warm, friendly lady, giddily excited (as usually they are), for her impending wedding day. Straight away, I warmed to Dawn and loved her ideas. We discussed cakes; flowers, colours even down to the details of her and her fiancé having their dogs attend the wedding. As Dawn and I built a rapport, chatted . . . a lot! And got on to the subject of her stationery (finally), Dawn asked about the possibility of using different textures and surfaces. Dawn and her fiancé are both blind and wanted a stationery company who could work with them  in order to create tactile pieces which not only looked beautiful, but felt beautiful too.  After lots of discussions, emails and samples we came up with their perfect invitation and coordinating stationery. Dawn and Paul went for a chequebook design, as there was a lot of information for their guests, displayed over six pages. Each page was perforated and printed using ivory, hammered textured 120gsm paper. The front and back covers where made using a beautiful tapestry embossed, ivory, heavy card stock, with her and Paul’s names printed on the cover. The initials of Dawn and Paul’s names,  started and finished with a single rhinestone, a touch Dawn asked for, to include a subtle amount of ‘bling’ amongst the elegant, sophisticated design. This also added another aspect to the feel of the invitation, which was finished off with a lavish, hand tied, double satin bow, tying the pages and completing the design. The bow was a deep fuchsia colour which was used in the venue décor, bridesmaids’ dresses, gents’ cravats, flowers, cake and of course with the table names and plan. The name cards were made from the same tapestry card again finished with the single rhinestone. Mr and Mrs Bridgehouse married at Bredbury Hall Hotel and Country Club, Cheshire. A beautiful wedding and a beautiful couple..
