Angela & Edward's wedding was all within a mile of their home in South London. The bespoke wedding stationery featured a fold-out map giving the background story to their everyday lives. Their wedding venue, Peckham Asylum was so unique it featured as the main motif for the invitations.
A Book for Inspiration
As Edward is a huge book lover it seemed perfect to draw on this for inspiration for the design. Angela & Edward were keen to have a 'mantlepiece' style invitation that their guests could have on display this was paired with a fold-out information pack was designed with a grey letterpress cover to emulate a book. The information pack included, RSVP, wedding menu, dress code and the bespoke area map.
We know an Asylum doesn't sound like a great place for a wedding but this one is! Peckham Asylum, AKA Caroline Gardens Chapel in South London is a stunning bombed out chapel a really unique and inspiring wedding venue. Perfect to feature as the motif for the invitation.
We loved making this, the map includes lots of private details about the couple themselves - from favourite local shops & restaurants to a daily commute. Whilst also letting the guests know where they needed to get for the ceremony & reception, a really lovely way to combine something practical with a something personal.
