Two invites, two destination celebrations!

It has been an absolute pleasure to work on this, our latest bespoke project for wonderful couple Stephanie and Jonathon. They asked us to create two invitation designs for their wedding celebrations; a ceremony in Tuscany and a cocktail party in Melbourne (I know! Wow!)

Stephanie and Jonathon both had slightly different tastes in terms of the styles of illustration they liked and so we worked with them to create something they would both love. We decided to go for florals that were full and busy, block geometric shapes, vibrant colours and hand painted detail.

We also created this portrait of the awesome couple for their wedding website! 

Here's what they had to say about working with us...

"Abi and Ben were FANTASTIC to work with- they completely understood our brief, and bought lots of great ideas to the table and made our ideas even better. They created 2 sets of invitations for us, plus a little portrait to go on the website we were making. I cant recommend them highly enough!"

A Summer Camp Wedding

Here at Dearly Beloved HQ Ben has been working on a collection for a Summer Camp themed wedding. A perfect style combination for any couple who want to celebrate a love of the great outdoors with a retro twist. We had so much fun getting inspiration for these designs, our influences range from Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom to Boy Scout style patches; check out our moodboard for an insight into the stuff we love looking at in the studio.

Signed, sealed, delivered...

Just packaged up our latest commission for another awesome couple. Love the nervous excitement of sending off our work, this time we have designed place settings, invitations and menus. The couple loved the invitation design so much they have even had it printed up as poster size artwork for their home together. 

A package from Dearly Beloved could be landing on your doorstep, just contact us -

Mike & Ellen, A picture made for two

This has been our favourite commission to date!

London couple Mike and Ellen are planning a beautiful wedding in Cornwall inspired by the English countryside. After speaking to the couple it was clear they wanted an invitation that gave their guests a preview into their celebration and what better way to get guests imagining the day than representing the couple in a portrait. Their invitation also features the colour of Ellen's favourite flower, the Cornflower. 

We are really looking forward to sharing more of the designs we have created, menus, signage, place settings... But you'll have to wait until after their big day to see those!
