PLEASE NOTE: orders are closed for Jan-Sept 2024 custom Ketubahs.
Limited availability for Oct-Dec 2024, please be in touch ASAP to secure a spot.
Read the maternity leave notice here.
Alongside the designs you see in the collection, I also work directly with couples to create custom hand-painted Ketubahs that are personal and unique works of art.
Custom ketubahs start at 6000NIS (approx $1,600) which includes everything from design planning to express shipping, and go up from there based on design complexity and size.
Step 1 - The Concept
It all starts with an email from you to me. This opening email should include your names and wedding date, and most importantly: your inspiration and ideas.
This is a range of images that inspire you, and that you’d like to see incorporated. Please also include any of my existing designs that you like (you can send some screenshots from this page or other places on my website), as well as any comments about formatting you may have (circular designs vs square, etc.).
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Step 2 - Making it Official
Once we have corresponded via email and I have an idea of design/complexity, I will be able to provide you with a quote.
I will send over a secure payment link and we are good to go. At the same time, you will select your ketubah text and submit your order form here. This pertains to the ketubah text itself, and will enable me to write it for you. For locals here in Israel, the text work is a little different, you can read about it all here.
IMPORTANT: Please discuss your text options and requirements with your rabbi before you submit your ketubah order. Your rabbi will be able to review the mockup and make any changes to the ketubah as needed (if you're not using a rabbi - that's fine too!). I prefer to keep all communication with the couple and not directly with rabbis, to keep the process streamlined.
Step 3 - Design and Planning
Now the fun begins! I will create a sketch and plan. Once we confirm the design plan, I am then able to use your order form to format your text digitally, ready to be printed. You (and your rabbi) will review the mockup and we will refine it until it’s good to print.
Step 4 - The Painting
Once both the design plan and text are confirmed, I print the text on 300gsm archival paper in my studio and the painting begins! I document a lot of this process over on my instagram, including process painting videos on Reels! The art is then shipped via DHL express, or collected from my studio in TLV.
For custom designs, I require a minimum of 10 weeks prior to the wedding.
Any less may still be possible, with an additional rush fee of 300NIS, so please get in touch with your wedding date.
Please note: All custom designs are original watercolor or gouache paintings, none of the pieces in the below gallery are available as prints as they were all custom painted to order.
What Couples Say
"There is simply no where else to look and no one else to work with other than Rachelle and the Delicate Brush when it's time to get your Ketubah. My fiancé and I and our families could not be more happy and blown away with the Ketubah Rachelle custom created and painted for our wedding. We truly believe it is the most beautiful Ketubah we've ever seen and feel so blessed to have found the Delicate Brush. Rachelle could not have been more responsive, proactive and speedy in keeping us up to date, asking questions and getting approvals for info we needed from our Rabbi. Her attention to detail -- from her paint to materials to fonts to her packaging (and shipping speed!) -- is clearly unrivaled. The Delicate Brush is a MUST for your Ketubah. Thank you!"
