Ed & Zoe - Country Farm Florals

We were thrilled when Zoe got in touch with us before Christmas after spotting our designs on Instagram; the couple are planning a fun marquee celebration on their parents farm and asked us to create a collection to suit the laid back style of the day.

We created a portrait, hand painted lettering and a couple of fun floral patterns for their invitation, RSVP and information cards.

Get in touch if you would like your very own wedding portrait! 

Our Story

Happy Birthday to us! We have been working together as Dearly Beloved for just over a year now, but we have been "Ben and Abi" for a lot longer. We met at Plymouth University where we were both studying Illustration, fast forward 8 years and we are working together from our home studio on Plymouth's Barbican... Most days you will find us drawing, singing badly/loudly and providing other couples with great design.

We love designing creative wedding invitations for our clients and as freelance illustrators bespoke projects are our speciality - it's always so exciting drawing those initial pencil sketches and figuring out how best to represent each couple on paper.

We obviously love making wedding specific artwork but it's not all we do!

Abi: Ben is always drawing, he makes really fun digital images but they always comes from a pencil drawing (buried in the pages of one of his sketchbooks). It never gets old peering over his shoulder to see what he's working on! I always thought it would be a nightmare working together but it's pretty great looking up and seeing your best friend!

Ben: Abi is always getting messy painting shapes and lettering on big sheets to scan in later, I think the hand painted lines are what make her drawings great.
