Venue Illustration - Lancemore Mansion Hotel Werribee Park

A beautiful, historic venue perfect for a venue illustration

Venue illustrations are a beautiful way to add a personal touch to your wedding invitations. They can be a great way to add a unique element to your invitations and reflect your individual wedding style.

Lancemore Mansion Hotel Werribee Park sits next to the iconic 1870s mansions, surrounded by formal English gardens and heritage builds. It is located in Werribee, Victoria, Australia. Set amidst stunning gardens and manicured lawns, this iconic mansion hotel boasts a rich history and a timeless charm. The heritage architecture is a beautiful backdrop for an elegant, intimate and stylish ceremony or reception. The venue's distinctive architecture and surroundings make it an ideal subject for an illustration, offering an opportunity to create a truly unique drawing.

Creating the illustration

Each venue illustration is created by hand with traditional pen on paper. After drawing initial pencil outlines, the illustration is worked in pen and fine strokes are used to highlight finer details and provide depth and form to both the building. Various line techniques are employed to accentuate key features, while adding elements of greenery and surroundings imbues the illustrations with a sense of context and depth.

Creating the original illustration.

Once completed, the drawing was scanned and converted to be suitable to use in the design.

Using the illustration

This illustration can be added to any of our Collection designs. For example it can easily be used on the Naomi and Hannah design styles which already feature an illustration. But it can also be added to any of our Collection designs or used on an information card, custom map or program cover.

The illustration is shown here used in the Naomi design style, with it placed at the top of the invitation. It is printed in our ‘Deep Blue’ letterpress ink on Soft white 100% cotton paper. The invitation is paired with matching Soft white 100% cotton envelopes.

Drawing edits or changes

The drawing can be edited, for example the drawing can be cropped tighter or made larger or smaller. Anything goes really! Just get in touch if you’d like to discuss the options in more detail prior to ordering.

Other illustrations

Illustrations can be of your ceremony or reception venue, the view or surrounding landscape, a significant landmark or perhaps even a place of meaning to you as a couple. Anything goes really! I've created drawings of old churches, hillsides, islands, boats and vistas, and all work equally well. Feel free to contact me with your venue details and ideas before requesting a quote to see what might be possible.

Commission a Custom Illustration

A custom illustration can be a beautiful way to personalise your wedding invitations, save the dates, information cards or programs. Custom illustrations can be added to any of our suites, not just those that feature a sample venue illustration. To begin, we recommend getting in touch to discuss your illustration ideas and options for your suite as well as to receive a quote. If your subject is suitable, there may be some discussion about the important elements to include or angle you'd like to see in the design. Note that I normally like to capture buildings from oblique angle as this adds depth and form.

We offer a number of invitation suites which feature venue illustrations as an integral part of the design style. However, you can also add a venue illustration to any of our suites. You can also use the illustration on different pieces - Information cards, Save the dates, Custom Maps, Menus, Program Covers - the options are endless. See our Illustrations page for more information and examples.
