To start, what exactly are custom hand painted wedding invitations?
To begin with by saying custom, that means that your invitations will be customised to you! Your chosen colours, your particular theme, whatever you desire, it will be yours. You work one to one directly will an invitation designer and go through several stages of artwork and design to arrive at exactly what you are envisioning. How about custom hand painted invitations? Is each and every invitation literally hand painted? Yes and no. Your artwork is all developed and hand painted. Then depending upon your budget, it can be printed or, yes, the final invitations and cards within your stationery suite can all literally be hand painted. I find that I often used a balance between the two for most of my invitation suites.
Everyone wants their wedding to be special and unique. So why custom hand painted wedding invitations? Unfortunately, for your wedding to be unique, that’s easier said than done because today all weddings seem the same. The guests receive a generic wedding invitation card, they visit a venue with pastel coloured decor, and listen to the wedding themed songs that are present at almost all weddings these days. If you really want your wedding to be unique and interesting, you need to think outside the box, and plan a wedding that’s a good reflection of you as a couple.
Many couples are choosing to design highly personalised weddings, going to smaller intimate weddings. In addition, many couples are now opting for destination weddings and want a higher level of service with completely custom handmade wedding invitations. Custom hand painted wedding invitations can be used with bespoke watercolour designs, artwork or any illustration effect you desire. Many of my clients also want custom designed calligraphy to further compliment their enticingly designed invitation suite.
The beauty of hand painted invitations is that no two designs are the same. As a couple, you are both unique, you have particular personalities and certain stand-out moments that brought you together. You both have passions and interest that set you apart. You want to weave those passion throughout your wedding and your wedding invitations. I would love to listen to your story. What is your favourite type of architecture? What sorts of interiors do you love? What are your favourite flowers? Which country you love travelling to and do you perhaps want a wedding in France? What is special about your culture or heritage? Or perhaps you would like your invitations and stationery to reflect your wedding venue? When I design your wedding invitations they will be to completely unique to you.

As an artist I always put in a lot of time, thought, and effort into getting to know you as a couple, so that I can create the designs to ensure they represent you well.
