Do you have photoshop? You’ll need a pretty decent editing tool to make your own fully custom. I can’t tell you what font that is exactly, but you can download lots of free fonts from sites like http://www.dafont.com/theme.php?cat=601 Look under ‘calligraphy’ specifically. I have one called ‘Chopin Script’ that’s quite similar that I’ve used for wedding invitations before. You can download it here http://www.dafont.com/chopin-script.font . The text also has a drop shadow effect added to it, but white rather than black, so that you can distinguish between the text and photo.

If you don’t have your own photo that you want to use, you can purchase one from a stock photography site like http://www.shutterstock.com It’s pretty cheap. 

If you don’t know how to use photoshop or other editing tools, I would recommend using a wedding invtation website. You can’t choose exactly what it looks like, but it’s a relatively easy way to get a cheap custom invitation.

You’re unlikely to find a graphic designer that wants to do it for free unless they are a very good friend. It’s already one of those businesses where everyone thinks that graphic design work should be done as a favour, rather than valued as someones career skill and can be a definite sore spot.

Unless you know someone who would do it for free (or for cheap), you are better off designing your announcements through an online shop. As for finding the fonts, try: http://www.identifont.com/

The second one looks a little familiar, but I can’t think of it off the top of my head. I don’t recognize the first, but there are a lot of similar fonts out there.
