REAL WEDDING // Lucy & Ben - An extra special Cypriot celebration

Today's real wedding post is an extra special post for us as it features none other than Dearly Beloved's Ben's twin sister Lucy and her new husband... also called Ben (yes, family events are confusing). Lucy and Ben tied the knot earlier this year in a beautiful, relaxed ceremony on the Cypriot coast. Wedding day photography by Dom Moore Photography.

For their greetings card style wedding invitation they chose tandem bicycle illustration as a nod to one of their favourite past times (Ben is a triathlete) and asked us to combine this with the iconic Cypriot olive branch.

The wedding took place at one of the couple's favourite places on earth, a small sailing club near where the family used to live, with the ceremony outside an idyllic church by the sea.

Lucy and Ben planned small, intimate celebration with lots of special DIY touches; the ceremony was conducted by the groom's grandfather, flowers were sourced from a local florist, meters (and meters) and lace bunting was hand made from vintage lace curtains by the bride's mother and sister, we took care of the stationery (of course) and the whole wedding party was on hand to help with decorating the space.

As well as holding nearly a decade of memories for the Aslett family the sailing club was full of rustic charm, it was lovely to be there to add last minute touches like decorating the chalkboard with a welcome message for guests.

We are sharing a very special bespoke design today... The Groom Jeremy is actually Abi's big brother! We can't wait until the day he marries his wonderful Bride-to-be Rebecca.

Becky and Jeremy have planned a glamorous destination wedding on the island of Rhodes and wanted personalised wedding stationery that reflected their love of travel. We wanted to give them modern a look that felt like their very own airline (if you look closely you'll see stamps that represent each country Becky and Jeremy have visited together).

As an added touch to celebrate both families coming together we also incorporated photographs of the couple's parents on their wedding day over 30 years ago.

We are SO excited for their wedding day this May, stay tuned for more from their big day - We've no doubt it's going to be a beautiful day filled with music, love, laughter (and some excellent dance moves!)

Becky and Jeremy have a glamorous destination wedding planned on the island of Rhodes and wanted personalised wedding stationery that reflected their love of travel. They had seen a few ideas that incorporated suitcase style tags but we wanted to give them modern a look that felt like their very own airline.

It was so much fun coming up with rubber stamp style details, like the 'Come fly with us' illustration featured on the back of the design.

We are SO looking forward to their big day (look out for many inevitable pics of Abi weeping in her bridesmaid dress)! The full suite is under wraps at the moment but we can't wait to share more of their 'Wanderlust' wedding stationery very soon!
