The Little Press



Real Weddings, TLP Custom DesignEmily Shingleton

It was such a joy to work with natural beauty and down-to-earth Courtney to dream up stationery for her wedding over meetings in the studio. Planning a wedding which was both relaxed and opulent, rustic and decadent, these elements came together beautifully on the day, at the stunning location of Empire retreat in Yallingup.

Here are some sweet words from Courtney about working with us, for her interview for The Lane
" We used The Little Press for all the stationary. I fell in love with their simple, understated, handwritten designs, and love the use of letterpress in the printing process. I worked with the talented Emily to create a custom flower illustration and handwritten text ‘lock up’ for our names, that we used across the entire suite, which included the invitation, RSVP with hand drawn map on the back and thank you card. The names were handwritten on the back of circle menus that were put on the plates for each guest. Emily also created the most amazing wedding book – letterpress printed with custom hand lettering, then hand bound with Western Australian bees wax thread and vegetable tanned leather. It was finished with 100% cotton pages inside for guests to sign their well wishes. "

Featured on PolkaDot Bride, Felicity and Jake's wedding was equal parts elegant and intimate, focusing on keeping things simplified but refined allowing everyone to focus on celebrating the story and the romance of the newlyweds.

Set in the beautiful South West of WA, the Margret river region is a popular destination for our Perth brides. We love the shots amongst the tall eucalyptus trees - reminiscent of our camping trips under the stars - completely elegant with the stunning, luxe dresses and suits. Wearing one of our favourite brands of bohemian wedding dresses, this wedding is the epitome of a Margret River wedding with all the right hints to luxe bohemian detail.

We love when our clients choose a winery for their wedding - it means that the wording on the invitation is simplified, as there is no need to write to different venues. This is perfect for an invitation with hand lettering, which needs a little more room than a modern type font would take up. There are other cool things about winery weddings too - beautiful setting, no driving between ceremony and reception, and you can have a bottle of wine from the land you were married on to drink at special occasions - or on the couch together in your slippers, at any time in your wedded bliss. :)

The invitations suite included a hand drawn map showing the location for the wedding and a few key land marks. Felicity says "We felt that the invite would set the tone for the wedding so we wanted something personal and hand made.”
