60th Birthday Invitations

The Story House Wedding

You know it’s going to be an interesting, or should I say challenging day, when you sit down at your desk, pen in hand, brush at the ready, and tea nearby, and realise you have to draw your other half, his siblings, and his parents on their wedding day – all in a day’s work when you’ve been chosen to design, in secret, an invitation for a special birthday celebration.

It was a lot of fun drawing out the details and events of Gordon’s life, forming a frame around the invitation, knowing that he was being kept in the dark. To have it all printed in time and in secrecy, I even ended up in the Ladies, discussing paper samples and finishes, with Suzanne, Gordon’s wife.

But it was worth it in the end, I was really happy with the result.
