Custom Wedding Dress Illustrations The best gifts are created with love, time and a little… imagination!
Welcome This is our story
Artist, Audrey Vance opened the doors of her Co. Wicklow studio, in March 2013 ready to create unique & personalised wedding dress illustrations for every other bride who loves her wedding dress.
“The first wedding dress illustration was of my own Tadashi Shoji ivory cocktail wedding dress, custom made and shipped from California. Illustrating something so special was a true labour of love and the original ink painting still makes me smile every time I see it hanging in my new studio space!” shares artist Audrey Vance in a recent interview from her Bray home in Ireland.

Design Process How it’s done
Curious about the design process of these bridal fashion illustrations?
The starting point for each illustration begins with good quality photos. Audrey requests several full-length angles of the wedding dress, along with close-ups of the dress detailing, bouquet, shoes and any neck jewellery.
Each illustration begins it’s life on tracing paper, where the proportions and detailing is all worked out. This is where Audrey works out the seams, boning, fall of the fabrics, small details and shading.
Once happy with the draft, the outline gets committed to high-quality watercolour paper. All the detailing is meticulously crafted with pen and ink. If Audrey has been commissioned to create an illustration from the Ink Painting Range then out come her finest paint brushes and a pot of Indian black ink for the three layers of background.
Once mounted, each one is signed and embossed with the company seal ready for framing, gift wrapping and shipping worldwide.
