We decided early on that we would design and try to print all of our stationary for the wedding- mainly to save money but also as I enjoy all that DIY/ crafty stuff.
The design of the cards was done by Mr Elinor Jenkins and it was the start of our love of the Ampersand which cleverly contains a C and S for Catherine and Stuart. We also printed this on the back of the Kraft paper envelopes in navy blue. The coral of the ampersand and the navy blue were carried through to all the other stationary.
The paper we used for the cards is a Bockingford Watercolour paper which we then cut down to size after printing. The paper is lovely and thick at 300gsm and has a texture, which works well against the simplicity of the design.
The stamps were another little touch as they were the current picture stamps from Royal Mail and are of Venus- goddess of love. Perfect.
