This bespoke watercolour wedding stationery has to be one of my favourite orders to date!
My bride wanted to use my Romeo and Juliet watercolour design but give it a green watercolour wash to look almost like hills for their wedding at Falcon Manor. She also asked me to paint a collection of Yorkshire scenes, some of which were very familiar to me! These were to be used for the table names and the table plan.
Having lived in Yorkshire for 20 years before I disappeared off to university it was lovely to have the opportunity to paint some local landmarks for their bespoke watercolour wedding stationery. Especially the Skipton image with the barge on the canal, I used to walk over this section of the canal most days to get to and from the train station to school!
I was very pleased with how the paintings came out and they looked great all together on the table plan. I also created these lovely handmade place settings which also double up as a bookmark for guests to use! Each place setting was painted with a wash of watercolour to match the rest of the stationery then finished with gold calligraphy and deep emerald green tassels. The menus also had gold calligraphy added to the top to tie everything together.
I think painting venues and scenes is fast becoming my favourite part of my job. I really enjoy creating such bespoke wedding stationery that feels very personal to the bride and groom.
