Newlyweds at Nyland Manor
Emily got in touch with me in advance of her wedding to commission an illustration to give to her husband-to-be on their wedding day. Together, we discussed an illustration of the two of them facing each other, holding hands with Nyland Manor - their wedding venue - behind.
I browsed through various images of the manor online and it quickly be clear that I simply had to include the main lake in the foreground. I also included some pops of colour in the form of different shades of purple and green foliage and flowers. Using a combination of photographs that Emily emailed to me and images I took from the venue’s website, I came up with this composition.
"A wonderful illustration! Working with Hannah was so easy, she really listened to what I wanted and drew everything with perfect detail. The final product was better than I could ever have imagined and I can't wait to show it off to everybody!"
(Emily was kind enough to post a cheeky little message to my Facebook page to let me know her husband's reaction to receiving his drawing on their wedding day. It went down well! See her post here).
