The lovely Anna and Boudewijn, a Dutch couple living in London, were having a wedding in the UK and a celebration in Amsterdam. They wanted a wedding invitation that would reflect their Dutch background and their life together in London. The couple on the front of the laser cut invitation is an evolution of a traditional Dutch image of a farmer and his wife leaning into kiss.
'When a couple are so enthusiastic about what you do, you know it's going to end well. So when Boudewijn said, as well as laser cut invitations, he wanted to create calendars as "a cool gadget" for his guests I knew we were onto a winner! The challenge was to capture all the visual elements - London landmarks, Amsterdam, Holland, without it looking like a mish-mash. As often happens the bride and groom provided the missing piece of the puzzle. Anna and Boudewijn had this lovely traditional Dutch image that they were desperate to include in their wedding stationery. I think it was Boudewijn's idea to turn the man into a Queen's guard. I ran with this and used the simple, innocent shapes of wooden toys to inspire the rest of the elements. It gives the design personality, linking all the pieces together and works a treat with the neutral colours they chose. It was a great concept to work with and proved such a hit that I had to do more, and the design went on to inspire our "A Little Romance" laser cut wedding invitation. Thanks guys for providing such a lovely brief!'
