wedding invitation

the lovely couple on the left commissioned me to make three illustrations for their wedding invitations. they wanted one couple portrait and the other two had to be festive illustrations, but the subjects were not predefined.

the ideation phase consisted of using reference photos provided by the client as well as searching for my own. 

 

i then started sketching some ideas to see what felt right and could look nice together.

 

i also started defining the colour palette to be used for all three illustrations in order to create cohesion.

below are the first drafts for the two illustrations other than the portrait. the client selected the fourth idea immediately. for the third illustration in the set the client requested to use the bouquet of the first idea but illustrate it being passed from the groom to the bride.

this is the final printed product! the photo was sent by the client.
