"The two of us are from different cultures and parts of the world. I would love to reflect these little cultural details in our wedding card that shows that although we were different from the start, we came together as one by becoming man and wife. Colin is from Scotland, the West, while I'm from Sri Lanka, the East."
With this context in mind, we infused the Scottish tartan into the card design to frame up the invitation content. Hand-illustrated florals at varying blossoming stages adorned our card design, given Elaine's love for Tulips and Peonies, in her favourite soft romantic colour palette of coral, peach, blush and a hint of green.
On the back of the postcard, we illustrated a stalk of Scotland thistle and Sri Lanka blue water lily (national flowers) delicately entwined with each other to symbolize that love will always bind Colin and Elaine together.
We so enjoy putting our minds and hands to creating extraordinarily meaningful works of art! Really blessed to work with this thoughtful couple on their wedding card and to know from them the response of their guests, "Those who have gotten the cards are going crazy over them! They're outstanding!"
Mission accomplished as their Love Story Illustrator ♡ Here's wishing Elaine & Colin a lifetime of happiness!
