While researching for her own wedding, artist Emily May noticed a trend for curiously no-nonsense wedding invitations, which wouldn’t do at all! Inspired and with a fine liner pen in hand, she set out to create elegant and whimsical wedding invitations for her fellow Nonsense loving couples.
From there she created a range of whimsical hand illustrated wedding invitations inspired by her adventuring alter ego, The Nonsense Maker. A small Australian business run by two women, all our invitations are lovingly hand drawn with fine point pen and digitally coloured, before being printed to order in our Melbourne studio.
The artwork on each invitation is reminiscent of fine etching techniques used by old-time story book illustrators. The use of bold colours and delicate penwork gives each piece a creative modern style with a unique vintage feel. There are several invitation styles to choose from, ranging from romantic and floral to quirky and fun.
