You know how bonkers we are about all things stationery, right?
Then you can just imagine the squeal we let out when one of our favourite paper people gave us a sneak peek at their latest collection.
Rose and Ruby Paper Co. is a luxury British design studio who create glorious stationery, and in particular stunning wedding invitations.
If you think the name sounds familiar, you might recognise Rose Murphy (Founder, Lead Designer and Creative Director at Rose & Ruby Paper Co.) from the weekly helpings of gorgeous inspiration she brings us here on Bridal Musings.
Rose & Ruby Paper Company's invitations are stylish yet timeless, with a distinct vintage elegance.
Romantic flower patterns, whimsical polka dots, antique lace styles and chic feather patterns; while the design studio has a signature style, their looks are versatile and creative, whether they're bespoke designs, or pieces from their collection.
Designer of gorgeous invitations, and creator of beautiful Bridal Musings inspiration boards, Rose of Rose and Ruby Paper Company is one talented lady. (And we're not just saying that because she's part of the BM contributor posse!)
Read on for more from Rose on the inspiration behind her designs, and lust over her papery perfections….
I love the magic of a wildly romantic love story and believe that paper is the most beautiful and eloquent way to tell that unique story and share it with the world.
Just as your wardrobe reflects your personal style, so does your image in print! So the story you tell with your stationery should always perfectly depict your style and personality whilst effortlessly relaying your message of love and utter joy!
This is exactly what Rose & Ruby is all about.
I love nothing more than creating beautiful narrative, working hand in hand with all of our wonderful couples to chronicle their love stories in print.
Weddings are such intimate and special affairs and we know first hand the importance of wedding suppliers that really do care.
We operate on a really personal level, getting to know all of our couples, making sure we completely understand every vision and aesthetic.
This way even our collection pieces always feel completely one off and perfectly tailored to each couple.
It’s often the little things that are held so tightly in our hearts – a hand written note, a beautifully crafted wedding invitation or a delightfully decadent monogram.
These things are so important and every day I am both humbled and overjoyed that I get to design and create these special pieces that will hold such cherished memories way after the event has actually happened!
I love to marry all of the influences that inspire me and all of the things that I adore; classically beautiful and timeless design combined with just a hit of modern pretty!
For over 10 years prior to launching Rose & Ruby I worked as a fashion designer so I have an engrained affinity for colours and finishes, textures and trends, and all the little details that go into making something really special.
I love and embrace everything about the design process in its entirety with inspiration coming from fashion, art, interiors, architecture, illustration, typography and beautiful script and fonts – another of my great loves!
We love to combine our signature luxurious flat printing with all of the most wonderful old and new printing techniques; particularly foiling which I love for picking out luxe details, thermography and also the very beautiful and traditional letterpress.
Rose & Ruby is a full service design studio and in addition to our stationery design, we work with a limited number of fabulous clients each year on branding and design projects, creating new identities, business branding and marketing collateral, websites and more.
We also absolutely adore collaborating with like minded creatives within the industry on various projects from styled shoots to collaborations and are always open to grand plans and magnificent ideas!
We believe in tasteful extravagance, traditional with a good dashing of just the right kind of modern, and maybe a little playful hint of the unexpected; the more fabulous the better!
Doesn't it make you want to take up letter-writing again? I think I'd like a pen pal if I could use elegant envelopes and luxurious paper like these, they're just heavenly.
