Bride Claire shares everything with her partner Alex, so not being able to show him the unusual design of her wedding dress was a toughie.
Then, she had a great idea; why not have the design of her wedding stationery, by Eden Rose Design Studio, inspired by her dress?

“Finding my wedding dress was one of the first things I did when wedding planning. I loved it so much, I really wanted other elements of the wedding day décor to tie into the dress design,” says bride Claire.
At a wedding show, Claire came across Eden Rose Design Studio. The company founder, also called Claire, is a talented illustrator, so the pair came up with the idea of hand drawing the flowers from the dress and incorporating it into the couple’s wedding stationery.

“I was really excited to begin designing Claire’s stationery,” says Claire at Eden Rose Design Studio. “Her wedding dress is absolutely stunning and I was delighted to have the opportunity to capture these beautiful details through illustration.
It was really important for me to capture the peony details from her dress accurately, so Claire provided me with high-resolution photographs of her gown so that I could really capture all the details – I was too scared to actually borrow the dress!
I used a combination of coloured pencils and acrylic paint for the illustration, and Claire and I worked together to create a simple yet bold colour palette which would complement the peony design from her dress without being overpowering.
We matched a deep burgundy from the peony petals for the typography and the paper stock was a subtle pearlised ivory. Claire chose handmade burgundy envelopes to finish off the look!”
“Eden Rose designed my invitations, save the dates, table plan and place names,” says bride Claire. “I was just blown away by how perfect they looked!
I always thought I was terrible at explaining what I like and how I wanted things to look, but Claire perfectly captured what I wanted.”
