Having taken a 9-month sabbatical to travel the world, Sam and Kathryn wanted to capture their love for travel in their wedding stationery. Looking for something a bit different, the couple asked if it would be possible to create a ‘flight card’ inspired package, reminiscent of what travellers may have received from their airline before the days of e-tickets.
In addition, Sam and Kathryn had taken a silhouetted photo of themselves which they wanted turning into artwork that could be used throughout the stationery. This would accompany a colour palette of purple and silver to match their bridesmaid’s dresses and accessories.
As a couple who love to travel, my husband and I wanted a travel inspired invitation but we were struggling to find anything suitable that we could really make our own. We were so happy to find Card and Light and what Philip designed for us was just amazing. We were so thrilled with our flight card style folder complete with tickets and tear off RSVPs to our wedding. Some of our friends have kept theirs as a memento! Philip really has an eye for detail, is hugely creative and the whole design process was flawless from start to finish. What more is there to say!
To ensure we created an accurate representation of a flight pack, we first sourced an old British Airways ticket and sleeve. This was used to make sure Sam and Kathryn’s flight ticket inspired invites would be sized and labelled properly and would be instantly recognisable to their guests.
Once the basic outline for the pack was formed, we created the couple’s branding to flow through their stationery. Careful consideration was needed here to ensure their logo would fit nicely on the tickets and with purple and silver being the chosen colour theme, a yellow accent colour was selected to add contrast to the palette.
The folder inserts would consist of a separate day and evening invite complete with a map, gift list, information card and directions. On each ‘first class’ invite, a pre-perforated tab was added that guests could tear off to complete and post pack to RSVP along with their dietarty requirements and song choice.
For on-the-day items, a matching order of service was produced complete with 12-page inner booklet handed out by the ushers. For the reception, hand written S&K place names featured on each table along with a large format seating plan in the banquet hall and favour tags that resembled luggage labels.
