INVITATION CARDS

THE WEDDING INVITATION CARD
Jezz has to take the credit for the creative way this invitation card is opened. I created the design and put together the artwork. I then arranged for our printers to print the cards, 4 side A4. When we got them back, we glued to the inside, a measured strip of rainbow ribbon with a loose knot in the middle. The idea was then when the card is opened by the invitee, the ribbon will tighten, thus “tying the knot.”


THE SUITS

The Ceremonial Party

The suits were hired from Moss Bros, originally at the Hove branch, but we’ve had dealings with Kingston and Colliers Wood branches too. The suits are actually blue (though they do look black in this photo), they’re Ted Baker and three-piece tails.

Pictured left to right: grandson Jake, sister Nikki, me, Jezz, best man Andy and grandson Ethan. I’m so incredibly proud of our boys.

THE RINGS

Originally the rings were an impulsive buy for the pair of us, but with the idea of a marriage somewhere in the distant future, they were re-named ‘engagement rings.’ They were bought from Venus Diamond, one of the many jewellery stores in The Lanes, Brighton. It’s managed by Arkham, and we were served by both him and Jo on 19 May 2019.

As we prepared for the wedding, it made sense to have the rings engraved. So, I designed what needed to be added, and they were hand-engraved in plenty of time for the day. And here they are… the first image is my submission for the engraving, and the next image is how they looked when we got them back.



MEMORY FRAMES

MEMORY FRAMES BOXES

I created these memory frames for our gorgeous ‘grandsomes,’ Ethan and Jake. They were our ring bearers and security for the ceremony. The regalia includes the cravat, buttonhole, and security lanyard and ID card that they both wore on the day.
