My name is Holly Rees and I am a wedding stationery and branding designer based in Greenwich, London. I offer couples a tailored design service for their stationery and aim to provide them with something deeply considered and special. I love styling and creating palettes, combining colours and textures and refining the concept for a stationery suite that is completely unique to the couple.
All invitations are designed with great care and attention to detail. I can provide all wedding stationery, from Save the dates and Invitations, through to menus and order of services. I especially love drawing maps and integrating a drawing of the venue into the stationery. I find designing wedding stationery to be a wonderfully creative process and one that is also extremely enjoyable and rewarding.
With 12 years of experience in the design industry, I have learnt to appreciate the importance of presentation, composition, the use of colour and the ability to refine concepts to create something simple yet effective. I use patterns, motifs and colours that inspire me from the worlds of interior design, advertising, weddings and graphics.
My designs are synonymous with simplicity, modernism and eclecticism. I love combining opposing qualities, using elements that seem like they shouldn’t work together, but do. By creating a balance between opposing styles, this adds an element of charm to my stationery, which can reflect the personalities of the couple or theme of the wedding.
I love to draw and to integrate these hand drawn elements, such as wildflower wreaths and botanicals into the stationery. This gives the design a boho, eclectic element, which compliments the opposing classic touches. I tend to steer away from fussy, “hand made” or anything overly ornamental and try to maintain an aesthetic that is quite fresh and inclusive.
