Lake Como Invitations – Curated Beauty
Lake Como Invitations – Curated beauty & Designs From the Heart
What is the story behind this Lake Como Invitations suite?
Let’s dive into the story behind this pretty Lake Como invitations suite. Earlier on this year, about February time I had a request to join a style shoot. It was was such an incredibly busy time for me. I was at that point working with a client on a very large order with lots of custom artwork that was needed. Yet as I had worked with this vendor previously I thought I could trust her style and was pretty eager to collaborate in another beautiful style shoot and jumped on board.
I’m a luxury wedding stationery designer who loves designing custom made, lavishly designed and hand painted wedding stationery for couples who want stationery that stands out from the crowd. If you’re planning your celebration or special event, get in touch at email@example.com or here via my contact page.
This vendor requested a very specific colour theme that I had not used previously. I had to take time away from my client and use my weekends to develop completely new designs with an entirely new colour theme requested by this vendor.
Unfortunately most of the suite that I had designed was not included in the shoot as the creative direction had changed last minute and only two pieces from the collection of papers that I had designed were used.
Perhaps my work was not good enough? However, I am learning more and more that it is quite often not my fault, or the fact that my work was not good enough. This stunning black and gold wedding stationery suite was rejected from two other editorials before it finally was used in a beautiful high-end editorial in Chateau Vaux- le -Vicomte.
I decided to take the most beautiful pieces and combine it with some new complimentary artwork and create an entirely new Lake Como invitations suite for an Italian wedding, which is how this pale blue, blush and gold stationery suite came into existence.
Lake Como Invitations – I’m taking the plunge again
If at first you don’t succeed, don’t give up and keep pushing forward. This time I’m sending this lovely set of stationery out to some vendors in Italy.
They’re having a style shoot on Lake Como at Villa Cipressi. Again, I am well aware that it is very risky working with new teams. When I work with new teams it can either be a great success, or an epic failure!
But I do go weak at the knees when old French chateaus or historical villas on Lake Como are spoken about. My stationery might go missing, I may never get it back. At least I tried! Incase this beautiful, vibrant yellow, blue and gold and blush Italian wedding stationery suite goes missing – here’s a quite sneak peak below.
