What is it exactly?

I paint live fashion illustrations using ink, markers and watercolour paints in my signature loose & sketchy style that is always flattering to your guests on A5 artist grade paper. 

How many illustrations will be created?

I paint on average 6 single people or 4 couples per hour.

How it works?

I set-up in at your drinks reception, all I require from the venue is a table and chair. 

Your guests will be happy to learn they won't be asked to stand in front of me while I paint them. Instead, they pose for a photo, which I use for reference while they continue to enjoy the reception.

I take photos, meet guests and start painting during the drinks reception (usually 2 hours). Once guests are called for the wedding breakfast, I keep my head down and complete as many paintings as possible for the duration of your chosen package.

I pack each illustration in a protective sleeve with a hard backing board for protection and display it on the table, creating a little pop up gallery. Guests love looking at these after the meal, recognising themselves and others and collecting their very own original illustration.  

What style are they painted?  

My quick illustrations are painted in my signature stylised and whimsy way, which is always flattering and complimentary of guests. I quickly capture the key details of outfits and hairstyles, wowing your guests when they instantly recognise themselves and fellow attendees in the pop up gallery. 

What if I have a large wedding and want all guests to get an illustration?

I wish I had the capacity to paint everyone, unfortunately its just not possible :( Once I reach my capacity, I close my list. Unless otherwise agreed with my couple to do a post-event service, in this case I start a waiting list and continue to take guest photos and paint the remaining illustrations in my studio. Please ask about this during the booking stage.
