Live Wedding Painting
Live painting is a great way to entertain guests and see the memory of the event unfold on your memorialise your special day. Not only do you get a keepsake that you can hold onto forever, but it's an experience for you and your guests to enjoy seeing a moment captured in real-time on paper. Children are also fascinated by the process.

I paint on “Arches” 100% cotton cold pressed paper 140lb using Daniel Smith artist grade professional paints. These materials are considered the gold standard and highest quality in watercolour painting. This gives the best texture, durability and colour pigment on the paper.

I paint in one size 13 x 19.5 inches (A3) - £499 with a clear white boarder around the edge. There may be a moderate additional charge for travel expenses depending on the distance and will be agreed in consultation.

The process is very simple – here is how it works:

1. Contact me via "Contacts" below to see if your date is available and we can discuss your plans for your event. Please book early as I get booked up quickly.

2. If content you can make the purchase and to secure the date or place a deposit with a 14 day cooling off period.

3. I'll send you my agreement and a questionnaire to get all your contact info, venue info, planner contact, times, etc. Then I'll handle it from there! I'll be in contact with your planner, organiser or venue manager to figure out the logistics of where I'll be located during the event so you stay stress-free when it comes to the date of your event.

4. On the day I'll arrive about 1-2 hours before the start of the event, ceremony or the reception (whichever moment you'd like to be painted) to set up and get started on sketching the background and composition. I'll continue to sketch and paint while the event is occurring and afterwards I may or may not be moved to a different spot to continue throughout the reception so your guests can view and interact with me while they enjoy the remainder of the event.

5. My time is around 5-6 hours but I’m flexible in order to capture the right moment and finish the painting! I'll be taking photos and videos before and throughout the event to make sure I capture everything to reference when continuing the sketching/painting. These will be deleted after the event.

6. At an appropriate point at the event you may wish a big reveal to the guests and take home a completed painting in a frame to cherish forever.

7. All packages include a finished watercolour painting to take home by the end of your event. I'd be happy to make any additional adjustments at home and post securely to your address.

8. Any travel expenses will be estimated and agreed before the booking. I can travel most places the UK.
