Liverpool themed invitations

My latest couple I have been working with are the lovely Jane and Paul, from a little village on the outskirts of Liverpool, Formby where I grew up.  Home to a gorgeous beach, a red squirrel reserve and more famously Steven Gerrard amongst other celebrities!

Both Jane and Paul are very proud of where they are from and wanted to try incorporate this into their invitation design. They are planning a big scouse wedding, set in the gorgeous local village church then onto Liverpool city centre for the reception with a backdrop of the Liver buildings – perfect.

I wanted to give them a couple of ideas to look at as they were unsure of exactly what they wanted, so I set about coming up with some designs.  I worked on a couple of crafty ideas, then in contrast to these I designed some Liverpool themed ideas using my more signature arty handcrafted style.

First up, my flowery Jade pocket-fold, their colour theme for the day is this colour so I kept it simple and just used a few pretty details to enhance the card



















Next up, another crafty one, I used several textures and diamantes to finish off the invites, using the jade colour to enhance the details.








Now onto the Liverpool themed invites which surprisingly were the winners! First up I designed a sketch using all the most famous buildings of Liverpool, curved them onto a half moon shape and finished off with a cutesy wedding car heading off into the distance. I kept the sketch colour free as I think it speaks for itself and used the Jade ribbon to add a touch of colour to the finished invite.









Finally my 2nd Liverpool themed idea is more of a graphic style.  I used the Liverpool skyline as a backdrop for the invite/inserts obviously with a few seagulls in the background to finish it off!
















My bride and groom loved the Liverpool themed invites, I was really chuffed with their reaction.  It turns out that I will now be working on a combination of both these designs for the final invite, in the mean time I am working on the graphic style for the save the dates. Pictures of these will follow shortly.

I hope you like them, get in touch and let me know what you think 🙂
