Jane Austen Wedding Inspiration at Prior Park College
it is a truth universally acknowledged…
Pride and Prejudice is one of those books I keep on going back to, so I was absolutely thrilled Lauren invited me to be a part of this project. Correspondence runs throughout the book, from hastily scribbled notes to long, heartfelt letters, so it seemed fitting to create invitation suite around the concept of love letters.
The finished suite includes a quote from Mr Darcy, printed in a beautiful calligraphic script on gorgeous cotton paper. To lend an air of literary elegance to the invitation itself, I chose a book font authentic to the Regency period to complement the script. A delicate ivy illustration printed on vellum finishes the suite - the language of flowers was well understood at the Austen was writing, so the significance of ivy for fidelity would not have been lost.
