Hand Painted Wedding Invitations – Portuguese Regality

These detailed hand painted wedding invitations, named Portuguese Regality, are inspired by an editorial that I recently did in Estoi Palace, Portugal.


Daydreams of old palaces in the south of Portugal. From times gone by, there was an influx of wealth in Portuguese history that came from exploration. The elite were steeped in abundance and riches. When I think of those times, I want to combine all the charm, the panache and the style of times gone by when women swirled about in their fine silk dresses, dripping with jewels and looking hopefully across the room. Waiting to be chosen by a dancing partner. I think of fine lace, painted hand held fans, candles and an array of antiques to decorate the room.

I want to encapsulate a bygone era and represent the feeling of romance and chivalry of that lost time in this lavishly made invitation suite.

This hand painted wedding invitation suite is designed with every corner richly embellished with dull golden streaks and gentle pink, blush. Pops of deep emerald green and vivid copper run through the design as a sharp but subtle highlight. It has a beautiful hand painted save the date envelope with thick strokes of pale blush acrylic paint.  As you run your fingers over, you feel the texture of the paint which adds to the drama!
