Medieval Wedding Invitations for Chelinda and Chris
I just finished creating medieval wedding invitations for a wonderful couple, Chelinda and Chris.
The invitation itself is a 5×7 card with an Irish blessing on the outside, and the details of the wedding on the inside (in the images, I have blurred the wedding date). There is also an RSVP postcard, and a map to the wedding location.
The invitations are in a Celtic theme: the script is Insular Minuscule, and the initial “C”s are based on letters in the Book of Kells. The map is inspired by the Lord of the Rings, complete with a dragon in the river and a troll guarding the toll-bridge.
Chelinda and Chris were wonderful to work with: easy-going, fun, and enthusiastic. Their wedding should be a blast for them and their guests. I wish them a lifetime of happy marriage: they deserve it!
