When Clare and I decided to tie the marital knot, we wanted our invitation to reflect the playful nature of our relationship.  We decided everything should be made by hand, from scratch – and also teach us something new.

So we set about learning to tie knots.

We set about discovering the wonderful world of knot tying by studying Knots, Ties & Splices: A Handbook for Seafarers, Travellers and All Who Use Cordage, by J. T. Burgess. Youtube taught us the rest.  Armed with our new found knowledge, we set about hiring a studio to record our new found skills.

We created an online RSVP site that streamed 15 knot tying ambient background videos.  The invite cards were hand cut, screen-printed and sewing machine bound.
