Not your typical wedding invite..

If you have been reading this blog for awhile, you’ll know that I am in love with the quirky and more unusual ideas and my designer Sabrina Dent is a nut for design and a bit of a Stalinist when it comes to invitations and fonts.  So happily, this post deals with both quirky and unusual AND invitations!

I stumbled across this incredibly cool invite on the web this week and contacted the designer to see if I could share it with you fine folk.  She graciously obliged and voilá!  Check out these uber-cool invites she photographed and designed for her friends David and Fiona.


Annie took the photo of the couple, David and Fiona, with their dog Lola.  This adds a whole lot of personalisation to the wedding invitation.


David wrote the text for the invite himself and Annie designed the typography to give it a bit of a vintage feel.  I love how informal this is and really sets itself so apart from traditional wedding invitations.  To me, it almost feels like a flyer for a music festival or something.


Annie also included a very informal RSVP page, which lets face it, even in these years of email and facebook people still love receiving post and none is more special than a wedding RSVP Card.

Annie Atkins, photographer and Graphic Artist is based in Dublin and is available for all types of design work and I’m sure would love to do some more wedding invites if the opportunity presented itself!  You can see more of her work and contact her via her website:
