Aviary flutters

In Spring 2015 I designed a suite of aviary inspired wedding stationery for Melissa and Craig. Craig had proposed to Melissa in an aviary so the birds were an important symbol throughout their celebrations. The ceremony and wedding breakfast took place at Chewton Glen in Hampshire

Listening to the couples ideas they wanted something very pretty, so they opted for some vintage painted birds. Each table was given a bird name (some with comical names) to add some wit along with the charm for their day. The vintage digital artwork was a purchase from Etsy

The colours for the stationery were neutral so that the colours of the birds popped, in all their glory. Guests were given a personalised menu which was wrapped around a crisp white linen napkin. The table names were handmade as a luggage label with delicate silver rivets and taupe ribbon displaying the vintage painted bird images with accompanied name.


The table flower display were designed by Corbins of Brockenhurst, New Forest in low silver urns. The little birds looked at home perched in amongst the garden of muted tones of peach, Ivory, cream and soft green roses.
