I love designing stationery. I have designed wedding stationery for a few of my friends so it was so exciting to start work on our very own designs!

Etsy and Pinterest are my two fav websites for ‘wedding research’ (drooling over others wedding ideas and stealing the best ones!) so I checked out loads of different stationery ideas and loved the thought of a simple vintage postcard for our ‘Save the Date’.  The design was easy to create but we needed just the right photo for the front of the card.  First we tried getting an image ourselves, with the use of a tripod and the camera self-timer function.  Although the photos were lovely, they weren’t quite what we were after:

Self-timer + tripod = not quite what we were after
Self-timer + tripod = not quite what we were after

Cue the cheesy engagement photo-shoot.

So once we had the photo right, then we just put it all together and sent it off to the printer.  We think they turned out pretty cool:
