Jihene & Loic’s wedding

Jihene and Loic planned an intimate wedding in their village in France with guests flying in from around the world and where the food played a key role. Jihene asked for an elegant card to feature the sumptuous and carefully chosen menu. It had to be a card that would make a beautiful keep-sake for their guests and themselves. 

Jihene was keen to detail out the gorgeous local roofing of the village called Toit Comptois. In this region of France every village church has its own uniquely patterned dome made with little coloured roof tiles. The one in Jihene’s and Loic’s village is truly gorgeous and looks like it comes straight off a Missoni catwalk. The colours of the tiles were leading and as usual I stuck to using just three base colours and custom blended the paints to ensure the menu would be one coherent piece. To really capture the intricacy of the roof, the tiles were individually painted.  

Further elements of pines, Compte cheese and the local wine feature on the menu card. Lush peonies add a pop of colour and cheerfulness and also featured in Jihene’s bridal bouquet. Together with a beautiful pine centre piece, the menu’s completed the table setting.  

The menu was printed on a double printed card using artisan paper. 

 

Sally created a beautiful bespoke menu card for my wedding in France. The drawings were elegant and unique and the paper of excellent quality. The menu’s were the talk of all the guests; they topped off the dinner table with chic decor and added the final fabulous touches to my wedding tablescape. Sally is super creative, resourceful and responsive. She truly cared!
