Peach and Cream Wedding Invitations

Soft, elegant peach and cream florals are the focus of this hand-painted wedding invitation set. The set of three comes complete with  a custom venue illustration, a bespoke envelope liner, illustrated details card and an RSVP card. The sample set pictured shows a watercolour venue painting of Hedsor House - a luxury Georgian venue in Buckinghamshire which promises exceptional experiences and treasured memories; although your set will come with your own custom venue illustration. Most venues look great in watercolours, especially stately homes, and country houses. Traditional, hand painted watercolours can really bring these wedding venues to life and showcase the old brickwork, architectural details, and lovely trees, plants and foliage that often surround them.
