Dinosaurs everywhere!

Recently there’s been a lot of interest in the dinosaur wedding invites I shared awhile back. It’s been great to see that so many people enjoy the design! I am happy to take inquiries about using the artwork for your own invitations — leave a comment and I will respond as soon as possible with details and pricing information.

In the meantime — or if you love dinos but don’t need a wedding invitation — I’ve also created some items with this graphic for Society6. You can find my shop here, and shipping is currently free worldwide (until June 7) if you visit from that link!

Sophie and Neal’s Leeds Town Hall wedding

Over the summer, I had the lovely opportunity to photograph the wedding of Sophie and Neal at Leeds Town Hall. My partner Roger came along as a second shooter. The ceremony took place in the Albert room, and the bride and groom looked radiantly in love as they said their vows.

Outside, the tall columns of the town hall made a great setting for portraits.

After the ceremony, we moved on to The Lounge for the reception. The candy buffet and bride-and-groom dalek cake toppers were a big hit!

Later in the day, we took advantage of the venue’s giant chairs for photos with the bridal party, who kept things fun with their expert silly posing. I loved the ladies’ vintage-style polka-dots and petticoats — especially the bride’s bright pink!

The Lounge is in a great location for receptions, being walking distance from the Town Hall and next to a scenic green garden. We moved outside for some final shots, and the weather indulged us with soft overcast light.

Sophie and Neal, thank you for inviting us to photograph your wedding day! We had a great time.

A custom dinosaur wedding invitation

And now for something a little different: here’s a recent personal design project that I’m excited about! I designed these custom dinosaur wedding invitations for my friend’s upcoming wedding.

Dinosaur wedding invitations and RSVP cards

The invitation design was a very collaborative effort with the bride. We kicked around some more generic dino ideas in early stages, but things really took off when she came up with the idea and rough sketches of the bronto-groom craning to snack on the bouquet of his adoring bride-osaurus. From there, I created the artwork and layouts for the invitation and RSVP postcards, while refining the graphics to their final form.

I loved bringing this concept to life, and can’t wait to celebrate what is sure to be a unique and fun-filled wedding!
