Anita and Matt contacted me when they wanted me to make their wedding stationery based on their name “Parrott”. The colour scheme of their wedding was a palette of mauves, lilacs and greens, based on the brides shoes. I initially drew a sketch of two parrots and this became the motif for the invites, thank you cards, place cards, bunting and even featured on the brides hat.
Thank you cards.
Mr and Mrs bunting.
I hand drew the parrot and the feather motif, added text and screen printed the stationery. I used up to five colours on the stationery which coupled with the use of thick watercolour paper, gave it a luxurious feel. I also hand printed envelopes for the invites.
The happy couple!
Doing this project made me realise how suited my art work was to wedding stationery and how much I loved making it. Anita and Matt were a dream to work with and gave me a chance to produce a range that was bespoke and special.
