Black & White Parisian

T H E  D E S I G N

As soon as Dean & Sofia contacted me… I was so excited to be part of their wedding! As Dean is my nephew, I was thrilled to help them both realise their dream wedding. Dean proposed to Sofia in the magical romantic city of Paris and so they wanted a touch of Parisian to their wedding invitation design. We went through some ideas and styles together and Dean fancied one style idea & Sofia another… I then created a combined design from their two favourite styles and the result was stunning! They absolutely loved it. I called it La’mour because it symbolises Paris – the city of love. La’mour is a beautiful vintage Paris inspired invite with gorgeous black & antique white ribboning that is carefully handspaced to create the perfect striped background, where a beautiful latte & black trimmed plaque with a stunning damask motif sits with a thick gorgeous satin bow. I also created matching stationery to include the deluxe ribboning style. Everything looked beautiful together and I was honoured that Dean & Sofia were in awe of them.

Matching stationery, accessories & decor made this wedding stunning. The place cards and table number cards were individually handspaced with the same ribboning and finished with a miniture satin bow.  The Seating Chart was also showing off the ribboning design and there was a matching Guest Book handmade in Black & Ivory silk which was placed on the welcome table in the foyer of the venue. Each guest had the opportunity to write a personal message for the happy couple. The Bride wore a stunning Karen Willis design in delicate white lace overlays that was styled with a gorgeous delicate crystal brooch on a black satin waist band that tied at the back with a long flowing bow. The groom was in a classic black suit designed by Paul Smith, London. The delectable chocolate cake was decorated with ivory icing that had a gorgeous damask design and finished with black ribbon and large white flowers. Guests also recieved bonbonniere which were miniture Eiffle Towers in Antique metal, finished with Black & Ivory satin edge organza circles that encased the sugared almonds and a matching tag that was all tied together with a little black satin bow.

Thank you Dean & Sofia for choosing Craftbox to create your stunning wedding invitations for you and a big thank you for having us be a part of your Wedding day. It was an honour and a beautiful day that will stay in my heart forever. Congratulations and all my love to a gorgeous couple!
