Design Inspiration from Paris: The Heart of my Invitation Designs

As a wedding stationery designer, it is critical for me to remain consistently inspired. This may come as a surprise to you but mostly I draw design inspiration from Paris!  I design for some very high end clients and it’s important for my work to stay refined, very dynamic looking and to stand out from the crowd. Being married to my Portuguese – French husband, I am so grateful to be able to pass through Paris, almost every single year. Paris has certainly become an explosion of inspiration and a hub for new-idea generation.

So much of my love for design and indeed so many of my custom invitation designs and French wedding invitations can be traced directly back to the scenery of Paris. Whether it’s the grand chateaus, the old back streets, or the architecture, there is a sea of artistic inspiration that never seems to end. Every time I do visit or pass through Paris, I am hit by a plethora of ideas.


Today I’m sharing a few images from my last visit and two of my wedding invitation designs that have been design directly from this inspiration.
