The Haçienda Themed Wedding Stationery – FAC51 The Haçienda simply known as The Haçienda was a legendary nightclub in Manchester from 1982-1997. This was one at one point the most famous nightclub in the world during the 1990’s much in the same way Studio 54 in New York was in the late 70’s. The nightclub as famous for its legendary house music and later acid house club nights and was most famous at the time when Manchester had its Madchester scene which later gave birth to lots of very big bands and musicians who started to break out of this scene, giving the world the likes of New Order, Joy Division, Peter Hook, later the Stone Roses, Oasis, The Happy Mondays, The Smiths all followed on from this time. So its no co-incidence that the Hacienda had a huge influence on the musicians of Manchester and also the people of Manchester and to this day still has its legendary status and is still as fresh in peoples minds as it was at the time. One of the great things about it was the artwork, posters and flyer designs it used to promote its club nights which was designed originally by Peter Saville. The instantly recognisable black and yellow diagonal striped lines are a regular feature on all Hacienda artwork which he designed inspired by the design of urban signage. The legacy lives on in the minds of many and this is what brought Natalie and Stuart to Wedfest’s door last year when they were looking for some Hacienda themed wedding stationery.
Natalie and Stuart from Manchester got in touch looking for us to create them wedding stationery in the style of The Hacienda’s famous artwork. The first thing they wanted was festival style wristbands to send out to their wedding guests as wedding save the dates. This was the first thing we designed for the couple and you can see in the photo below the couple modelling the save the date wristbands on their actual wedding day.
Once the save the dates were out next up was the wedding invitations which again the couple wanted to be designed in a hacienda theme. We continued the use of the black and yellow diagonal stripes and presented the wedding information in a format true to the original hacienda poster designs
The hacienda wedding invites were ticket style so they featured an RSVP stub which wedding guests could easily tear off and reply to the couple letting them know if they could attend the wedding or not.
Below is a photo of Stuart and Natalie on their wedding day which looked like great fun. Notice that Stuart was of course sporting his hacienda themed wedding wristband on the day as was the bride herself. Thanks to Natalie for sending us these photographs to use on the website, the photos were taken by the fabulous Manchester based wedding photographer Sally T Photography, you can check out more of her excellent work at www.sallytphotography.com
For the actual wedding day we also created more hacienda themed wedding stationery including a hacienda themed wedding table plan and matching wedding table cards.
The wedding table plan again followed the same design style of the Hacienda Promotional Posters and featured the wedding tables as names of Manchester music legends such as Noel Gallagher from Oasis, Peter Hook from Joy Division, Clint Boon from the Inspiral Carpets, Ian Brown & Mani from The Stone Roses, Johnny Marr from The Smyths, Liam Fray from the Courteeners and Shaun Ryder from the Happy Mondays and later Black Grape.
The wedding table plan was mounted on to 5mm foamex board for a clean and tidy finish as can be seen in the photo below. We can offer all our table plans mounted or as posters for framing, whatever suits you.
The wedding table centre cards then also were designed to match the table plan and featured the names of each artist on each designated table.
This set of wedding stationery was a complete and utter joy to work on especially for someone who is a huge fan of Manchester, Madchester, The Hacienda and all of the music and Musicians who have come out of Manchester during this era. There is no doubt that anyone who is a fan of music in Manchester would love this wedding stationery and as you can see in Natalie and Stuarts wedding photos it looked absolutely amazing at their wedding venue.
