Wedding invitation design for Amy and Shaun
Congratulations Amy and Shaun!!
Occasionally I’m lucky enough to be a guest at a wedding where I have designed the wedding invitations. I had the privilege of attending Amy and Shaun’s beautiful wedding on Easter Monday.
Following their marriage at St. Edwards Church, Cheddleton, the wedding reception was held at The Three Horseshoes Inn, Blackshaw Moor in Staffordshire. This wedding venue has superb views of the Roaches and the Peak District from the gardens. Therefore an inspirational location to use as starting point when I sat down to design their wedding invitations.

Amy loved the folded concertina wedding invitation design, which we adapted to the correct size to contain the information she needed to share with her guests. We added a pocket on the back page to include a ‘Wedding Breakfast Menu’ insert and a map of the two venues. You can get a better look here. Researching the locations and painting the landscapes and buildings was exhilarating. There is nothing quite like being on the top of the Roaches on a windy day! It also gave me an excuse to comb through lots of wildflower books in search of the flowers in Amy’s wedding bouquet!
The 22nd April, as well as Amy and Shaun’s wedding day, just so happened to be Earth Day, a cause very close to Amy’s heart. During his sermon, Revd. Philip Swan mentioned this and an inflatable globe bounced around above the congregation! The rustic theme, beautiful, seasonal wild flowers of the wedding bouquets , along with gorgeous spring weather made this coincidence very appropriate indeed. Amy’s flowers were from Blossom & Tied’s wedding and event flower service and looked absolutely stunning.
The environment and what we can do to protect it is also very important to me as a stationery designer. All of the wedding invitations that I print are produced on FSC approved paper stock, which is especially important when there is as much paper involved as this!
Congratulations again Amy and Shaun, wishing you all the best for the future and thank you for the inviting me to your beautiful wedding. I had a fabulous time!
