Save the Date
Linen embroidered front cover of the scrapbook
Upon opening, the first page has my monogram for the couple, highlighted with silver foil
The pages for the 'gypsy' themed welcome night were an explosion of colourful stripes, hand-coloured vintage photos and even sheet music for the traditional 'tarantella' dance
The wheel can be rotated to show photos of vintage 'gypsy' dancers that revolve past the window
After the colourful 'gypsy' themed welcome party, the wedding day page is white and romantic with silver foil and accessories
Fresh white wedding page
Behind this silver foil votive lies a naive painting of the couple saying their vows
For the brunch the following day, I included an authentic recipe for cookies and limoncello
Traditional neapolitan pompoms accessorise the pages

Ravello wedding weekend invitation
For this project, I was briefed to design an invitation that could convey a lot of detailed information (including a busy three-day wedding programme, dresscodes, information about the wedding locations, plus flights and hotel accommodation details) in a colourful, creative and fun way.
The bride and groom loved my proposal: an invitation inspired by holiday scrapbooks, full of meaningful mementoes, souvenirs, plans photos and hand-written notes.
Seen here, my colourful Save the Date's quirky calligraphy and watercolour paintings that set the tone for the invitation.
