Determined not to have a ‘cookie cutter’ wedding, this couple went all out for an old-fashioned feel, including with a vintage car, fascinators and hats, all on this historical plot of land – Erskine College in Island Bay, Wellington. It is a former girls’ boarding school, currently used often for events. Thanks to We Do Photography & Design for sharing this set of photos with us.
Nikki, the creative one of the duo, tried to personalise things as much as she could, including her wedding dress and the stationery. Maybe it is the designer part of us speaking, but we think typography really sets the tone and mood in an event. Here, the font choice was perfect, and see how beautifully it was used to label each table, which were all streets of significance in this couple’s lives, embellished with funny anecdotes.
We also love how the programme sheets were printed on Kraft paper, which went really well with their vintage brown look. People should so totally start exploring paper stock – they actually might not cost more and they make a great amount of difference.
