Creative Personalized Wedding Seating Cards

November 8, 2010 | editorial team

When you’re a wedding photographer who has attended many, many (many!) weddings, what do you do to set your own big day apart? Well, if you’re South Africa’s Greg Lumley of Greg Lumley Photography and his new wife Tiffany, you get super creative and honor your guests with personalized place cards complete with designs that represent their personalities, passions and dreams. So fun!

Tiffany gave us descriptions of many of their designs (below) and told us, “It took quite a lot of time but it was certainly worth the effort the guests felt so special and the looks on their faces when they saw what concept we had chosen for them was priceless! We had clips put on the top of each card so they could attach them to their clothing as name tags. Not only did everyone see who was who but the images were great conversation starters.”

Each of Tiffany and Greg’s one hundred guests had their very own place card, starting with Mr. Greg Lumley: the groom and Mrs. Tiffany Lumley: the bride…
