Campfire Celebration! Happy 2nd Birthday Wilf!

Last month we donated our design services to the Native Makers Fundraising Auction - These amazing guys are working with local creatives to develop their practice through workshops, artisan fairs and more! 

Congratulations to the Wells Family! They were planning a campfire inspired birthday party, with a BBQ, toasted marshmallows and camping, to celebrate their son Wilf's 2nd birthday party. We were delighted to design these bespoke invitations for the celebration!

This summer we were invited to get involved in this beautiful styled shoot by Mr & Mrs Unique

Mr & Mrs Unique celebrate extraordinary and alternative wedding ideas and suppliers, having followed their blog for a while now we were delighted when they asked us to create some stationery for them.

The brief was to design stationery that was feminine, edgy and romantic with a hand drawn look; we created a collection that embraced all of the floral elements of the theme and added a vintage, Victoriana feel to match the historic venue, Dewsall Court.

It was so much fun flexing our design muscles and working to new theme; we can design to coordinate with any weird and wonderful ideas you might have for your wedding. Contact us to talk about your wedding invitations!

 Huge thanks to Erica from Mr & Mrs Unique for the great art direction on this project!

Back to the studio!

Abigail and Ben at Yosemite National Park, June 2015

We are back from our American adventure! We had such a wonderful time exploring the country and spending a month away together. One of our favourite places was Yosemite National Park, a fellow traveller snapped this picture of us in a moment that has become one of my favourite memories.

Now that we are back in good ole Blighty we are back in the Dearly Beloved studio and taking on new commissions! We will also be developing some new illustrations and lettering based on all the wonderful things we saw in USA. If you were following us on Instagram you got a preview into all the exciting things we saw; from hand painted vintage signs to the beautiful colours in the American landscape we ended our trip feeling inspired and ready to kick life's butt!

An invitation for a Mid Century Celebration

Michael and Sophie came to us with a request for a wedding invitation influenced by 20th century graphic design, they wanted something clean and bold that would work with their London based wedding. We created this screenprint inspired design for them along with matching place settings and menus. It's so great to be able to give couples stationery that they feel really suits them on their wedding day!

Here is a sneak peek into our studio, this is a clip showing the process of Abi painting her latest piece 'You and Me'. This image was created with pencil, masking fluid, indian ink and watercolour paint. If you would like a custom painting for your wedding invitations we can also frame up the original artwork for you - save a spot in your new marital home!
