Rebecca & Nicky

Our Holy Redeemer Church, Clydebank & Duntreath Castle, Blanefield, Scotland

Rebecca and her beau Nicky tied the knot in July 2016 at Our Holy Redeemer Church, with a reception afterwards on the beautiful grounds of Duntreath Castle in Blanefield, near Glasgow.

From my first consultation with her, I knew Rebecca’s vision for the wedding was right up my street – an organic palette inspired by nature. Drawing from the beautiful Scottish setting of the reception venue, she was keen to give her wedding stationery a fresh feel and weave in touches of heather purple with lots of lush greenery and floral details.

Rebecca loved the idea of incorporating watercolour. Working from her brief to florist Endrick Blooms, I hand-painted the floral elements and combined them with delicate calligraphy. Everything was printed on premium GF Smith paper and finished with hand-lettered details, including envelopes addressed in calligraphy with Sumi ink.

Once the invitation and RSVP card design was agreed, we planned all the day-of details: from creating a table plan hung artfully from a rustic ladder, to gift favour tags, signage, menus and orders of service. Table place settings and numbers were adorned with hand-painted watercolour greenery and finished in calligraphy with each guest’s name. The result – an absolutely gorgeous wedding with every last detail tied together. Not to mention not one but two (!) floral crowns.

One of the best parts of my job is getting to know couples and their families. Working with Rebecca, Nicky and Rebecca’s mum Pearl was a creative, collaborative process and an absolute pleasure. Every single detail was planned with love and I couldn’t have asked to work with a more grateful, kind and generous family on such a special day.
