Mellissa and John's Wedding Place Cards

Modern script Quite by wonderful coincidence, I met with Mellissa, owner of Hercules Cakehouse. I mentioned my calligraphy work to her, should she need a little something to go along with her delicious favours, and she later got in touch with me to help out with her wedding place cards.

With a simple, yet classy brief of gold ink on ivory to suit the autumnal wedding, Mellissa was wonderful to work with. I gave her two script style options, traditional(ish) copperplate, or a more modern take on it. We went with the latter.

Mellissa provided the linen ivory place cards (Amazon, £6/100), and, while it's always risky working with card stock you've never tried out, her selection was perfect. It also helps that the Finetec metallic watercolour selection I used are so much more forgiving that ink.
