Rhian and Liam

 

In 2017, my lovely daughter Rhian married the wonderful Liam, which turned out to be a great excuse for some gorgeous design work!

 

Just now and then, it makes a lovely change to work on really pretty stuff!  Fortunately, Rhian is creative like me, and was really keen for us to produce unique stationery to her own design for their special day.  Working to her spec of navy and dusky pink, I produced a basic style (choosing these delicious fonts, lovely colours, patterns and textures), which we then worked on together to produce our own hand-made Save the Date cards, invitations, orders of service, and a host of other print items, some of which you can see here.  We spent many happy hours crafting the finished items!

Creating them ourselves meant (apart from having a stack load of fun!) we were able to keep costs down, choose exactly what Rhian wanted, create some unusual and innovative pieces, all matching the beautiful theme we had created.  Instead of the traditional wedding favours, Rhian and Liam chose a playlist of music reflecting their time together, and we made this into a CD for guests to take with them - deigned in the style of an old 7" single (remember them?!), and printed with a matching label and sleeve.  We also created accommodation, directions and RSVP cards, 'advice for the bride and groom', personalised activity packs for the smaller guests, place settings, and even a SnapChat filter for guests to use on the day!  We then splashed out and had thank you cards commercially printed, to send out after the event.

It was a massive success - Rhian and Liam were delighted with the designs and the finished articles, and we received no end of compliments - a wonderful build-up to a fabulous day!

Commissioned by Mother-of-the-Groom Gill Brady, I was delighted to be asked to design wedding stationery including the Order of Service shown below for Phil and Laura's wedding, being held at the same beautiful church where I got married many years ago!

 

The colour scheme for the flowers was ivory and dusky pink, so I took this as my inspiration and designed a stylish layout for the Order of Service documents which would blend well. I also designed matching music covers for Gill's choral group Mes Amies, who sang at the service.


Gill arranged for the documents to be printed locally, then bound them using matching pink ribbon to create this stunning effect.

Corporate Golf Day Invitations

Following on from designing their new business cards and corporate stationery, Boden Plumbing & Heating in Scarborough asked me to produce an invitation design for a very special event - their 50th Anniversary Corporate Golf Day.

 

Using their existing branding, I designed DL sized invitations, perfect for mailing, and arranged print delivery to meet their tight deadlines.

 

"Thank you, Gaynor - the invitations are great, everyone will love them!"

I have been working with the fabulous people at Buzz for nearly 6 years now, designing their new logo, and leaflets, posters, business cards, stationery, display banners and flyers to promote their wonderful Play Centre, their Ofsted-rated 'Outstanding' Out-of-School Club, and innovative (and frankly genius) Wedding Creche service. Now, my challenge was to design pre-printed invitations for their brilliant Buzz Parties scheme.

 

Manager Kath Mardles asked me to come up with a design which they could use to give out to parents arranging their child's party with Buzz to invite guests, so picking up the vibrant colour scheme and styling we'd used on their other material, I designed a fun and exciting (and unisex!) image which we had printed as gloss fronted postcards (making the colours really 'pop'), with spaces on the back for the party girl or boy to fill in their details.
