Renaissance Style Wedding Invitations
Renaissance Style Wedding Invitations – Popping with Sumptuous Jewel like Tones
Renaissance style wedding invitations have a charm all of their own. As a wedding invitation design, I create luxury custom invitations for special events, celebrations and weddings and I have to tell you that there really is nothing as inspiring to me as a wedding venue. Especially a wedding venue as special as Villa Balbiano. Ever since I came across luxury wedding venues in Italy and the remarkable venues under the umbrella of The Heritage Collection, especially after coming across Villa Astor and Villa Balbiano, I was instantly besotted.
This collection is partly inspired by rich, decadent gold interiors and the black and gold colours from below.

I was instantly inspired and desire to create a dramatic renaissance style wedding invitations suite that demanded attention. Using acanthus and ornamental architecture, I set about starting an entirely new design, old world European and Italian inspired design. I focused on using deep black card that was a thicker card stock so that the edges could provide a crisp tear and of course only use deep gold, copper metallic, finetic inks and paired it with thick acrylic paint to add extra depth and a build up of interesting layers.
I wanted there to be a focus of more design and less wording that might detract from the design, so I spaced the wording out to spread over two pages.

Continuing on, when I am forming an entire collection, I look to what I can combine in terms of colour with the shark, dramatic deep black and gold hues from above. With a desire to be really edgy, in a dynamic and yet classy way, I decided to introduce a deep rich yellow watercolour background. It took me sometime to prepare this watercolour background design as I hand painted it first.
