Marks & Spencer Royal Wedding Tin

Feeling patriotic? The folks at Marks and Sparks commissioned me to create this illustration for a rather unique biscuit tin, commemorating the Royal wedding next month. These beautiful, limited edition tins will be available from today at an M&S near you so get yourself one to celebrate the nuptials of Will & Kate!

Ooh, it's lovely and romantic and sophisticated - and gives me an excuse to eat biscuits just so I can have one! *rushes out to M&S*

Amanda said...

Leah said...

Gorgeous work! Is there a way to purchase this tin in the United States?

Just had to buy it- will be back for more if there are any left!

Very pretty indeed. Your designs would make lovely book covers.

This is so classy! Honestly, I don't know what is UP with all of the tacky-ness that is coming out to 'honor' what appears to be such a young and modern couple. Your work really seems to be a more accurate reflection of who they are -way to go!

Ha, now I'm wishing I could pick up one of these myself! (but I'm guessing they're not for sale in Germany, hm?)

Would love to purchase this if it were available to ship to Canada!

Thanks for all your lovely comments on the tin. It makes everything worthwhile to get such a positive response to my work! Unfortunately, I do not think the tin is available to buy outside the UK unless you go via ebay or something like that. Good luck and enjoy watching the wedding on Friday! K xxx

I love this design. It is the only commemorative souvenir that I have bought for the royal wedding, because, as mentioned in one of the previous comments, these have tended to be a bit tacky. Your design is lovely and fresh. I wonder whether I would be able to post the main pictures of your design on my blog?: http://abookishspace.blogspot.com/

I just had to buy this in Marks when I saw it, it was by far the most beautiful piece of commemorative memorabilia out there! I cant believe I've stumbled across the person who made the beautiful art which has been sitting on my tea party table all day. BEAUTIFUL! x

Hello! My friend Joanna sent this lovely tin to me for my birthday and we nibbled on the biscuits with tea during the Royal Wedding. Your illustration is so beautiful and I will always treasure the tin.

Hi Kate, I absoutely love this tin. Looked online on M+S but don't see it. Is there any way to purchase it and have it shipped to Canada? I'm really buying it because I admire the illustration and I have been following the royal wedding and I'm a designer myself. You did a great job :) please let me know! My email is deb.lau@gmail.com. Thank you!!!
