Cara & Cathy’s wedding invitation #1

CC invitation names 2

My dear friends Cara and Cathy are getting married this year, and I’m their Art Director. This may, in time, involve the additional role of Assistant Bunting Coordinator. But for now, my job is to create their wedding invitations.

I’ve been playing around with ideas for several months and have just finished something I’m happy with.

I’m not going to show the final one to YOU yet (I need to consult my patrons first), but here are some of my sketches.

I wanted to use some text (along the lines of this idea), so asked C&C to tell me a list of names that are significant to them. And what a list! Any creative project containing Beatrix Potter, Justin Bieber and JS Bach is destined for glory.
