Royal Ascot gets under way today, great for those who love horses and royals, or simply those that love a good excuse for a posh party and to get their fancy hats out.
I designed this invitation for the latter.
Event invitations will be available very soon in the shop!
A short time ago, good friend and wedding photographer Stephen Rotondo and some of his clients, kindly let me loose on some of his lovely photos, from which I’ve created some portraits perfect for using as save the dates or wedding invitations.
Firstly there’s Luci and Chris, who got married back in 2010. Stephen took some anniversary photos of them on a lovely summers walk http://www.stephenrotondo.com/luci-chris/. They told me they both love the film Breakfast at Tiffany’s, so I’ve taken a great kissing shot and transformed them into Audrey and George for a fun film themed save the date!
Next up is Emily and Elwyn who had a great engagement session at Belsize Village, London http://www.stephenrotondo.com/belsize-village-london/. I used a lovely natural looking shot of them to create a simple save the date with a vintage feel using a fabric background. This style would work really well using some special fabric from the couple, perhaps from bridesmaids dresses or venue decorations.
Katherine and Chris had some great shots done in the woods, (where I also spent some time growing up!) http://www.stephenrotondo.com/bluebell-wood-peterborough/ Inspired by some lovely bright colours and pretty trees, this portrait is nice and simple and could be used for save the dates, front of invitations, or any other wedding stationery!
And finally, Stephen himself got married last year to the lovely Mell. Their portrait has a very illustrative look, as I have included a backdrop of many of their favourite things. (Designed from original photograph by Dean Govier)
If you’re interested in a custom portrait for yourself or your own event then head to my Etsy shop for more details, or get in touch with me at email@example.com
I have opened up shop over at Etsy!. http://www.etsy.com/shop/jodicherry
To begin with you can find custom collage portraits for the ones you love (furry variety included).
The collages include watercolour, fabric, paper and stitch.
From a good quality digital photograph of the couple (or single, or pet) , I will create a unique piece of artwork that can also be used for prints.
The background will include up to two different patterned or plain areas. The patterned area can be personalized, for example to include pins, snowflakes, bicycles etc…. You can send me any fabric or paper that you would like to include by post, to make it even more special and personal.
