Ireland Wedding Invitations – A&B
Today I’m excited to share one of my latest Ireland wedding invitations client commission, for a small and intimate wedding elopement to be planned later on in 2022. The couple chose to hold their wedding in a small courthouse ceremony and will celebrate their special elopement in Ireland next year.
Custom iIllustration commissions
I must say that the bride that approached me was a dream to work with! She desired a luxury wedding invitations suite to commemorate and mark her special occasion. As a stationery designer I knew once I saw her design inspiration that she knew exactly what she wanted. Whenever I work on a custom illustration commission, or in this case to create Ireland wedding invitations, it is very important to have a good range of visual design. I’m very visually inspired and visually driven.
Design inspiration / moodboards
I was very happily and instantly excited to see that my client had organised and selected some excellent and varied design inspiration on a Pinterest mood board that she had especially curated.
She had saved all sorts of images ranging from vintage crest designs, smaller crest designs for the envelope, a specific harp design that she wanted to incorporate, and a range of flowers that she also wanted to use. She focused primarily on daffodils, bluebells and lily of the valley and expressed a preference for ivy leaves as well. Using all of the inspiration and creative direction that she provided, all I needed was the wording / copy to go upon the main pieces and I could start creating the artwork and compiling the designs.
Below you can see how I used all of her ideas and used her vision to create a custom, luxury hand made and hand painted Ireland wedding invitations suite.
The floral watercolour paintings that I developed for my client were quite bright and full of summer happiness. The bright colours needed to be toned down with slightly subdued tones to bring the wedding stationery suite together in a cohesive way. I selected a range of calm forest greens, dark bottle green and a pale beige, deep cream textured paper, to bring calmness to the stationery suite’s design. I used dark and strong, coppery gold ink throughout the stationery suite to add more depth and brilliance to the design.
