Happy Monday everyone! We’re starting the week with some seriously stunning and elegant gold foil and navy wedding invitations – and they come to us all the way from the other side of the world: New Zealand!! I love the way Kate of Make Hey incorporated the couple’s navy, gold, and peach color palette into the wedding invitations, including the deliciously shiny metallic gold foil against the velvety navy blue paper. Kate drew design inspiration from the wedding venue and surrounding southern New Zealand landscape, which includes mountain valleys, lakes, and big skies. Beautiful wedding invitations for a wedding in an incredibly beautiful setting!
From Kate: This gold foil wedding invitation suite was custom designed for Helen and Tim, who were married in spring at the Tuhitarata Estate in Martinborough, New Zealand. I drew my main inspiration for the design from the Tuhitarata Estate and its surroundings. Tuhitarata Estate is located in South Wairarapa, a wide valley fringed by mountains to the west and rugged coast to the south and east. The South Wairarapa is a place of big skies, beautiful rural scenery, historic towns full of colonial character, lakes, and waterways. The 1860s-era homestead, Tuhitarata, is set in a park like setting of old English trees and formal gardens.
Helen and Tim wanted their elegant color palette of navy blue, gold and hints of peach to be represented in their wedding stationery. The main invitation was printed on Bristol Intensive Navy Blue by B&F Papers and provides the most incredible contrast amongst the invitation suite. The envelopes were simple kraft paper with a matching wrap around kraft paper seal.
