Quirky and playful illustrated wedding stationery with a mixture of modern designs and old fashioned charm

Quirky and pretty illustrated wedding stationery

When I came across the wedding stationery created by illustrator Victoria Whincup I was certain that you would all love to see her designs too.  I got in touch with Victoria and she told me that she first started doing wedding invitations when she made them for a friend, and since then hasn’t been able to stop!  “I love to hear a customer’s idea and then translate it into a design.  I have always drawn and painted, it’s all I’ve ever really wanted to do.”

Victoria uses paint brushes and pencils to create her designs, telling me she believes it gives a much more personal feel to the invites.  “I’m a great lover of typography, so all of the text is delicately hand drawn.  Colours are also definitely important when it comes to my designs, it’s nice to subtly tie in the colour theme of a wedding, or perhaps the season.  Most of the tones I use are quite muted, but I am a fan of a splash of vibrant colour here and there.”

I adore Victoria’s sweet illustrations from her quirky birds to the delicate leaves and soft flowers that grow around the edges of her designs.  I can quite imagine that you would want to frame one as a lovely memory of your wedding day.

Currently based in Hull, Victoria graduated from the Cambridge School of Art in 2009 with a 1st class honours degree in illustration.  All of her wedding invitations are hand drawn and hand painted, giving them a personal touch, before being professionally printed on recycled card.
