The big Greeklish wedding


This year we had the pleasure of working on the wedding invitations for the lovely bride Thea and her greek husband-to-be, Timos. It was set to be a beautiful greek wedding in a church only accessible by boat, not far from the village that Timos's family lived.

The wedding invitations had english and greek influences, with vintage being the theme of choice. A vintage telegram idea was settled on, starting with an email save the date that they sent to all their family and friends. A printed version was then designed for the main invite, with a translated/tweaked version for the (big!) greek family and guests. For a truely authentic look I used a typewriter font that was slightly distressed, personalised red stamps and crown and royal-esque icons printed on beautiful brown Kraft card. This was sent out in an equally retro designed envelope, with stripes and personalised stamps - being the first time I'd designed an envelope to accompany the invite it was quite exciting to think of this little pack being sent across the ocean. 

The wedding itself took place this month, and looked as beautiful as you can imagine. I know all brides look happy, but this greek bride was beaming from ear to ear! Here are a collection of some of their photos and insight into the invitation, which is now available to order yourself, click here to do so...
