Tom and Tarryn got engaged in Lebanon in 2014 and asked me to design their wedding invitations. They are both architects by profession so I was not surprised when they decided to include two well known Johannesburg landmarks in their big day. They would get married in the Cathedral of Christ The King in Hillbrow, followed by a formal reception at The Rand Club.
The aim was to design something which acknowledged them as architects without looking too stark. As focal point, a monogram was designed for each of the two aforementioned buildings. The classic dark-blue paper was letterpressed in gold foil and matched with a dark-blue envelope. The monograms were further simplified to enable their use with a hand embosser for stationary such as the invitation supplements and programmes. For the menus I illustrated key ingredients which I tinted in blue to match the rest of the stationary.
