Late last year I had the privilege of designing wedding invites for some very special friends. They wanted hand drawn watercolour images, with shamrocks to represent her Irish roots on the wreath around her portrait, and ferns to represent his Kiwi roots around his portrait.
The dusky pinks, blues and greens tied in with the soft colours of the bridesmaid dresses. All in all this was one of the most fairytale-like picturesque weddings I’ve been to, and it was an absolute joy working on these invites with this couple.
And matching Order of Service, for their gorgeous beach ceremony:
Handpainted with watercolour and ink, printed locally and envelopes made & sourced locally. Available from my Etsy store. Spread some Christmas cheer!
A few months ago we had renovations done at our house, and I noticed the builders leaving these little off-cuts lying around… I felt a bit like a crazy person gathering up their off-cuts, but I had other ideas for them. Got myself some Resene test pots and proceeded to paint…
Trying out my new water brush – it’s like using a marker pen… with watercolour!
I got married recently! Hoorah! And here’s the invite myself and friend/maid of honour, Eunice Kwa, created together (I painted the flowers, she arranged them and did the type).
Have a look here.
