Venice wedding

For this Venice wedding, I wanted to create an invitation that felt rich and ornate while also feeling fresh and romantic.  Inspired by 18th century Venetian engravings and the miniature theatre sets that you find in Venice souvenir shops, I decided to create my own miniature set of scenes that, when combined, would create a complete tableau.

Seen here, my illustrations for each page, including the separate 'map' of Venice showing all the wedding weekend venues.

Seen here, the semi transparent envelope with calligraphed names to compliment the gold introductory text.

Gold foil picks out the details in the illustrations.
