Julie & Jeff: Beautiful Borris House
We're thrilled to have played a part in Julie and Jeff's wedding, which is featured over on One Fab Day. You would never believe that they planned the whole wedding in just 6 months!
The couple knew they wanted to include their venue on their invitation. Our art director, Ailbhe, created a pen illustration of their gorgeous boutique wedding venue, Borris House in Carlow. The house is a picturesque country house, who wouldn't want to include it on their invitations. Julie said; We went to visit Borris House the following week after getting engaged. It was the first venue Jeff had seen that he was actually excited about which I loved. When we saw Borris House in person we were completely sold - it is incredible and not ‘perfect’ either but bursting with character! It represented us so well we felt!
An illustrated map was also created, featuring some local landmarks, the church and the wedding venue, a fun way to make sure your guests don't get lost!
We created a simple monogram with the couples initials which featured on all the stationery throughout the wedding. All the pieces were housed in a light gold pocketfold adorned with the monogrammed bellyband which added the perfect finishing touch.
Julie envisioned using the dresser as part of her table plan instead of covering it up and we were excited to help make it happen. I'm sure you'll agree the way it all came together was simply stunning!
I loved the way our table plan worked out actually! I emailed our wonderful caterer Eunice about a month before the wedding and asked her if she would have 14 teacups I could borrow on the day when she kindly obliged. I did a little sketch and asked The Flower Box would they do that in the morning if I glued lollipop sticks to the back of our table cards and that was that!
In addition to the invitation suite, we created table charts, monogrammed dinner menus, betting slips, and ceremony booklets.
The menus were kept simple, a monochrome theme to compliment the white, ivory and vintage theme. Of course, the personalised monogram was also added to the menu to tie all of the stationery together.
Their whole wedding was a beautiful Spring affair. Congratulations to the happy couples and thanks for sharing all your gorgeous photos with us, we wish you a lifetime of happiness.
