Tropical foliage + copper foil? A match made in heaven! I’m pretty sure my jaw hit the floor when I saw these gorgeous tropical garden party copper foil wedding invitations from Haley at Australian creative studio The Distillery. Haley created these invitations for a wedding at the Merribee Estate a couple of hours south of Sydney, Australia. I love the dark green envelope liner against the colorful digitally printed tropical florals and copper foil details!
From Haley: As Mel and Nathan were planning their wedding, they knew they wanted a romantic, whimsical and slightly quirky adventure out of the city they call home. Inspired by the sense of freedom, they ventured south of Sydney, where they fell in love with the enchanting gardens of Merribee Estate. Immediately they knew that the surrounding ornamental topiary and tropical gardens, would shape their entire stationery suite and set the tone for a slightly unconventional wedding.
With a passion for craft and tactility, Mel and Nathan wanted to to explore speciality embellishments to inspire their guests with a sense of freedom, fun and adventure that also draws on the weddings slightly Alice in Wonderland theme. The invitation features flowering trees, and pretty topiary in a variety of whimsical shapes and colours combined with the subtle glimmer of foil sprinkled within the digital florals to silently accentuate the couples names.
Mel and Nathan’s names have been hand lettered with a copper foil embellishment to mimic the rustic elegance of Merribee’s historical barn. The ever so slightly quirky and playful nature of the evening was also brought into the details of the typography that has been letterpress printed into a creamy cotton stock and mounted to a deep forest green.
These qualities have been further explored in the additional stationery pieces, including a hand illustrated map that combines both letterpress printing processes with new age digital printing. The map unfolds to reveal a playful Alice in Wonderland inspired journey filled with tea cups and playing cards to highlight key details for their guest’s adventure to Merribee gardens.
The RSVP card is a petite, play on verbs and adjectives that inspires their guests to create loving memories for the bride and groom. The stationery suite is completed with a beautiful modern calligraphy style that addresses their guests envelopes.
