Wedding Invitation

I was asked by a friend to design wedding invitations “in the style of a B-movie poster”. The couple wanted some horrible threatening robot or creature, and the bride carrying a swooning groom to safety. In the background, York Minster is flooded (a regional joke!) and beset by tentacles.

All the text is based on captions from various B-movies, as was the colour scheme. They asked for something in a similar vein to this wedding invite by Ellen Forney.

Today is Lesley and Matt’s actual wedding day, so let’s all wish them “Congratulations!” and hope that no squid, floods or robots are putting a crimp on their day.
