Inspirations – Cecil Beaton Wedding Invitations

I love those moments when for whatever reason, you discover a new artist.  An artist that you feel with your whole being you should have known about and had the chance to be inspired by all these years….  Rebecca, a new Momental Bride, introduced me to Cecil Beaton this week, who, in his time was quite the renaissance man.  Known as a portrait photographer, painter and Academy Award winning costume designer, Sir Cecil, had it all covered.

His whimsical illustrations for Vogue are a particular favorite and sweet Rebecca, our Bride says my work reminds her so much of Sir Cecil – quite the compliment!!

Rebecca’s palette of greens will govern her design…I’m thinking of experimenting with a few geometric patterns as well.
