Not only did Cara have the pleasure of designing this beautiful pair’s chic French wedding day stationery, but she also got to enjoy heading over to the South of France to watch them both marry!
When my wonderful friends Sion and Aurore originally approached me to see if I would be able to realise their French wedding stationery plans, I of course immediately said yes!
As a beautiful young French woman with heaps of effortless style, I knew that Aurore would be looking for something understated and chic for her French Chateau wedding.
After sitting down at the studio over coffee and cake, we decided to let beautifully organic textures of paper combine with classic serif fonts to allow my hand-painted watercolour botanicals shine as the main star.
This echoed Sion and Aurore’s plans for their wedding day venue decor; the beautifully textural walls of the centuries old chateau, were to be simply enhanced with lots of warm candlelight and an abundance of fragrant greenery.
The French wedding stationery designs were planned to sit within the tablescape, not compete for attention with it.

For the final pièce de résistance (I know, check me out after a long sunny weekend en France!), Aurore asked me to create quirky little Order of the Day cards to await each guest in the chateau residences, to give them a little taster of what to expect from the weekend ahead.
This time, although we kept some of the softer, watercolour greenery to match the Wedding Day designs, I opted for a more frivolous and fun approach with cute little custom illustrations on a timeline of the events. It was even more fabulous to arrive at the magnificent Le Château Les Carrasses and find one waiting in mine and Mr. Paper Shop’s room!
It was a privilege to join you both on such a magical weekend Mr and Mrs Rowlands, and thank you both again for choosing TLPS to help realise your ideas x
