I offer a bespoke Wedding service whereby I draw throughout the wedding celebrations and provide a series of illustrations. Because it is important for me to immerse myself in the occasion and its surroundings, I offer a complete package where I attend the whole event and create a series of sketches that cover the key aspects of the wedding in accordance with your wishes. My wedding package includes a meeting with my clients to discuss the wedding, its style, location and key subjects for drawing. It also includes a visit to the venue ahead of the special day so I can start to think about the place and what makes it special. I think of that visit as pre-work, preparation, where I will also do one or more drawings to get a feel for it all. On the day I arrive in good time to prepare myself and start a drawing or do some warm up exercises, prior to drawing throughout the occasion.
Hand drawn illustrations, carried out during this very special occasion have a particular quality and resonance with my clients. They offer something different to photographs, an immediacy, an energy and a quirkiness that sets them apart from other ways of capturing the most special of days. My focus is to capture a sense of occasion, emotion and a sense of place in the drawings. Capturing special details that are important to you is something I pride myself in.
The Finished Drawings
All drawings are completed on high quality watercolour paper (A4 size or as discussed) and box-packaged to provide you with the originals for framing. I can also provide digital versions of the drawings. The drawings include pen and ink, watercolour and hand lettering. You can read about my recent projects on my blog and there are also a range of wedding projects in my project portfolio.
