tying the knot: tasha & julien

What can we say, a beautiful couple, a beautiful venue, beautiful friends and of course a beautiful day. New Years Eve proved to be the perfect day for Tasha and Julien's wedding, blue skies, sunshine and white sands. What more could a girl ask for? Recycled tins filled with wild flowers made the perfect centre pieces whilst candles and trinkets hung from the weathered beams. Littered with old fishing apparel and pure white bunting, this was a rustic beach wedding to be in awe of. Honest, organic and relaxed.

And yes, we were lucky enough to create the stationery for them! Tasha and Julien chose the suite 'Fairground' and we helped chose the colours, pale blue and grey, prodominently inspired by their choice of venue. Being from different countries, Julien from Reunion Island and Tasha from South Africa, meant that their stationery had to cater for two languages. So we decided to dedicate one colour to the English copy (blue as Tasha's bridesmaids were to be dressed in the same shade) and one to the French (as Julien's suit was to be grey). This formula dictated the design of the whole stationery suite. In total we created 6 pieces, the invitation, faire part (which is a French tradition), menu, table numbers, seating plan and place tags. The majority of pieces were litho printed on 300gsm stock. 

We are so pleased to have been a part of their big day and wish them all the best in their life long journey together! We'd also like to thank Allan McCreadie for supplying such beautiful photos and of course Tasha and Julien themselves for their review.
