Calligraphy

It’s a relatively new trend in the Sri Lankan wedding industry but something which seems essential if you’re aiming for an elegant affair.

Calligraphy is the beautiful way of writing and is a visual art. According to Wikipedia “Modern calligraphy ranges from functional hand-lettered inscriptions and designs to fine-art pieces where the abstract expression of the handwritten mark may or may not compromise the legibility of the letters. Classical calligraphy differs from typography and non-classical hand-lettering, though a calligrapher may create all of these; characters are historically disciplined yet fluid and spontaneous, at the moment of writing”.

Nowadays in terms of weddings, it can be used for invitations, envelopes, R.S.V.P. cards, gift registry cards, place cards, favours and much more. There is a different font and alphabet where calligraphy is involved and I know a few Sri Lankan’s who are awesome at it. Came across some work by Laura Hooper which I wanted to share with you.
