Nicola & Birju
A wonderful project for us, creating a bespoke invitation for this Indian fusion wedding for Nicola and Birju.
The couple came to see us with a handful of beautiful Indian wedding invitations. These invites were ones that Birju’s family had been invited to and had kept hold of long after the weddings had been and gone…understandably so as they were so elaborate and each one different from the other. We wanted to create something really special for the couple that their guests upon receiving them would want as a keep sake as well. However as a fusion wedding, although we wanted to take inspiration from the traditional we also wanted to add a contemporary and personal touch to them.
WHAT WE DID
We started off by looking at the traditional Indian Invites, we loved how they all had different textures and additional elements that added interest. We decided to bring this into Nicola and Birju’s with the addition of tracing paper to create another layer and texture. The colour pallet was decided upon as golds, reds and greens to create something vibrant and modern.
We found inspiration in Indian pattern books and included some of these into the designs along with traditional Indian symbols such as the Indian god Ganesh.
Nicola was keen to get something from Newcastle upon Tyne into the design so this is where the Tyne bridge idea came from. Giving it an Indian twist with a parade walking over the bridge.
We created a gatefold invite, that when opened up had another layer with tracing paper folding in the opposite direction with further design elements printed onto it. Once the tracing paper was opened up it reveals the info sheet, rsvp and invitation.
To complete the design colourful gems were added in keeping with the colour scheme and a gold bow to hold the invite together.
This was a challenging project but one we loved creating!
