Real Weddings : Mr & Mrs Martin & Hanna Kinsella
Hanna and Martin (as seen on ITV's 'Real Housewives of Cheshire') wed in the stunning halls of Liverpool's Anglican Cathedral, followed by a reception in the lush surroundings of Sefton Park's iconic Palmhouse.
Hanna's vision was to honour both the awe inspiring setting of the cathedral and her Iranian heritage - combining a traditional invitation with elements of Persian design. This was achieved using a variety of printing techniques. The invitation was printed simply using a raised effect in deep green on a pure white board. This was presented wrapped in a vellum sheet featuring a lush and leafy tropical design in many shades of green. The accompanying info card featured a paisley design, foiled in bright gold. Paisley is an ornamental pattern originating in Persia featuring the 'boteh' or 'buta', a teardrop-shaped motif with a curved upper end. The theme carried throughout the stationery suite, and was set off with additional elements of gold - in the wax seal and the thread which wrapped the invitation. The seating plan was a mirror with the paisley pattern applied around the edges with sumptuous hints of luxurious gold on the individual cards. Simply stunning!
