LIVE ILLUSTRATION & CALLIGRAPHY 

Hi! I'm Lauren, a Live Illustrator based in Warwickshire. I can be hired for weddings, private parties and corporate events, to illustrate either your guests or special details throughout the day.

 

I find the process of capturing life's beautiful moments in paint and ink so wonderful, and I also pleased to be able to offer this as a live painting service for your special celebration! I have a very limited amount of date openings for custom illustration, calligraphy and capturing wonder, and I would love to do this for you.

 

Live illustration for your event? Absolutely! 

Whether it be for a private occasion such as a wedding, a milestone birthday party or Baby shower, or if you are looking for something a little different for your Brand and Business event. I discreetly paint through your event to capture wonderful moments, perfectly imperfect conversations, fun poses with your loved ones and more. With three packages available and a completely bespoke pathway to suit your needs, I welcome the chance to catch up over zoom and a coffee to discuss your beautiful plans.

FAQs - Answered

How will my guests know what to do for the Guest Illustration package?

I will provide a personalised sign showcasing how live Illustration works, your guests can watch the painting as it happens if they wish, and have a look at other people's portraits too. Standing and watching is not expected but definitely welcome. My assistant will take photos of your guests to create an album I can work from, in order to make the most of the time you have booked for. 
 

How many guest portraits can you create?

The amount of portraits I can complete per hour depends on a few things: 

1.  guest uptake

2. Details involved (detailed attire and props can require more time!)

3.  The layout of your portraits: head and shoulders and half portraits are completed quicker than full body portraits. I can complete 1 guest starting from 5 minutes, this timeframe is for my live illustration style in a blend of paint/ink/pencil.

 

I aim for 30-40 guests per 4 hour booking, with this figure depending on the above and logistics of the day. The priority is always- as many as possible!

Your guests can collect their paintings from the stand once they have finished drying. and any that aren't collected are sent to you after your wedding. 

Will you have time to illustrate all my guests?

I aim to illustrate as my guests as I can possibility fit in your time frame. It's always good to remember that just like photography, there will likely be guests who would prefer to observe rather than take part. You are welcome to add on studio time too for larger wedding guest lists, and I can illustrate after the event!

Does the guest illustrations package include an illustration of us?

Absolutely, I can prioritise time within your booking to capture the happy couple on your day, it's important you have a portrait too! If you have added studio time to your booking, I complete the newlyweds' portrait in this time to capture those intricate details. 

Do you cover my area?

I am based in Warwickshire but can travel to your event! I am so excited to say I have weddings booked in many different locations this year. There is a travel cost for venues outside a 20mile radius of CV37, and accommodation is required if your event is over 2 hours travel time each way.

Can we book you for a shorter/longer time?

For local weekday bookings, I can offer a smaller package. I can also increase timings and add studio time to your booking, as well as blend components from different packages to suit your event!

Do you have any more photos?

Absolutely! View the guest portrait example gallery here. 

What do you need to illustrate at our event?

I require an even surface and access to a plug socket if the room gets dark as the day unfolds. Due to our kit, roadside access/loading area is required when setting up and packing down for your event. If this isn't possible, surfaces and chairs may need to be provided by your venue.
