Sonia and Paul first met in Holland where Sonia’s family is from. She is a first generation New Zealander and Paul comes from Ireland. They had the lovely idea of combining their individual heritage in a subtle whimsical way. After brainstorming together we decided to go with a soft pencil illustration with the main elements highlighted in watercolour. Paul is a botanist at Trinity College and has actually discovered a new kind of yellow Poppy (featured in the invitation)!
With this in mind, we went with a detailed botanist vintage style illustration of the plants. We incorporated plants from both New Zealand and Ireland as well as some native wildlife resulting in a whimsical forest scene. Both the couple and their close friends would be able to pick subtle little symbols out of the scene that represents the two of them. The result was a beautiful story wedding invitation that was truly unique to them as a couple.
Sonia and Paul had a lovely bohemian vintage style that really shone throughout their wedding.
