Irish & French wedding

Irish/French couple, Marie and Fred asked me to create for them bespoke caricature wedding invites and save the date cards. They wanted their Irish French wedding invitations to reflect where they came from in a comical way.

For the save the dates I painted colourful love birds, flying high above the location of their wedding in France. The birds plumage reflecting their countries flags, Ireland and France. They also requested stickers of the birds to seal the wedding invitation envelopes.

For the actual wedding invitations they had a very specific brief… They wanted caricatures of themselves, flying over the English Channel in a Citroen 2CV, showing off their passions of baking, surfing and kite surfing AND having their pet horse and dog in the back! The challenge was on!! The final illustrations were done in watercolour.
