Guest Blog from Papeterie Eugenie Stationery - A Beautiful Nod To China

The talented Eugenie from Papeterie Eugenie Stationery sent us through a lovely little description on a current Bride and Groom's stationary designs for their wedding.  

"A lovely couple marrying at Hedsor House this summer, had a very specific stationery brief.  It was very important for the bride to bring elements of her Chinese heritage to their traditional English wedding.  

She loved purple, gold and delicate design.  It was important to include orange blossom somewhere.  As red is lucky and the traditional colour for Chinese weddings, it was essential to include this too.  Being drawn to hand-crafting we created beautiful little bundles, containing the invitation, information and RSVP card.  Each card was illustrated with orange blossom and a pair of lovebirds, in red and gold, representing the Bride and Groom.  A bespoke illustration was the perfect way to link everything together.

To make the invitation complete, the Bride provided beautifully scented red envelopes, all the way from China.  These are used at Chinese weddings where it is traditional to offer gifts of money - and will be posted in a stunning, hand-crafted post-box on their big day. 

I can’t wait to share the final vision in June…"
