This commission was for a painting which the couple could keep, which was also to be used for their wedding invitations. They wanted a story of their day as a map in Cambridge, starting with the Reception and Service at Magdalene College, followed by punts along the Cam, and an evening party in Barrington with dancing, a marquee and food trucks. They even wanted me to show the coach taking their guests to the party!
I designed the layout so that the bottom section showing the evening events could be used as a standalone invitation for the evening reception. The flowers in the design are taken from the bride’s bouquet. The couple used some of the floral sprigs and other elements as individual images for their table settings, orders of service, etc.
“Thank you so much for the wonderful painting you did for us, and allowing us to use it throughout the day. It made it feel much more personal and special and we’ve got an amazing memory to take through our lives together. The day was fantastic and like the painting it was full of colour, fun and a day that flowed from one thing to the next. We enjoyed explaining to friends and family what you did for us, and told them to explore your amazing work!” S & T, Cambridge
