Custom Calligraphy & Watercolored Wedding Map - Australia

Here is another watercolored wedding map, destination Brisbane, Australia. I illustrated and watercolored the locations "Ella", the bride chose. Some brides like to pack in as much information as will fit into a card, and others, like this, prefer to keep it simple and only add the most necessary information.

With custom wedding maps, everything is flexible - color scheme, size, lettering style, not to mention illustrations. It's always fun to create maps because of this, and to translate what each couple envisions into art.

Wedding Signature Scroll

This Signing Scroll is different than most wedding scrolls I make because the customer decided to add much more lettering - I loved the wording she chose to incorporate and the way the calligraphy looks stacked. Although the scroll incorporated a watercolored illustration, the focal point was the calligraphy.

Illustrated Seattle Wedding Map

I don't ever get tired of these.... wedding maps are still such a unique idea and look even prettier with hand calligraphy and illustration. Here is one of my recent wedding maps of the colorful Northwest. This is a picture of the original 9x12 map, however, printing will allow it to be smaller and even printed on ivory paper for a softer look. I love the bright contrast of watercolor wash with black lettering though!


I've done several maps recently, my next post to come soon will feature a watercolored map of Queensland, AU.
