It was such a pleasure to create these calligraphy wedding invitations printed on handmade paper for this destination wedding editorial shot by Sophie Kaye in Ireland on the Cliffs of Moher.
I created this organic calligraphy script and added a bit of texture to the letterforms by “bleeding” the ink. I used minimal wording in a classic serif font and then printed the pieces on Silk & Willow handmade paper. An additional insert with the suite, printed on Owl Post paper, was printed with a poem by Pablo Neruda.
The envelopes were also addressed in a mixture of serif font and hand calligraphy in walnut ink and accented by vintage stamps and the entire suite wrapped in a fine, kraft paper twine, and stamped with an ornate gold wax seal from Saint Signora.
Check out the full feature on Style Me Pretty. It’s INCREDIBLE.
