The illustration for the wedding invitation, with clues to travel memories tucked away between the flowers and leaves.
I’ve been waiting to share these images from a very special commission: illustrations for the invitation and the order of service booklet for my friends’ wedding a few weeks ago! ✨
North Yorkshire is a place that’s close to my heart, so it was lovely to draw plants I associate with summers there, and to draw a view of Jervaulx Abbey, the incredible location of the wedding party.
Below are a few of the simple pen portraits I did – these were included in the Order of Service booklet, introducing the excellent bridal party.
Thank you so much, Iona and Nick, for this amazing commission, it was an honour to work on these illustrations, and really fun to work with you! Congratulations again!
If you find yourself in North Yorkshire, don’t miss out on a visit to Jervaulx Abbey. On a day like Iona and Nick’s, in the midst of summer with a lucky day of beaming sunshine, surrounded by green hills and fields and with trees and wild flowers growing freely among the peaceful ruins – and with lovely company – it is phenomenal.
