I've never heard of a Live Illustrator before, how do I find one?

Well I'm here so share some lovely news in that you already have! I have a huge passion for bespoke design, sustainable materials and detail driven keepsakes. If this sounds like you, then you may have just found your match. I am a Live Illustrator that truly cares, so we can work together to create a package that fits all your wants and wishes, or you can choose a ready made package if you want an easier solution that is all set up for you.

So tell me more about what you do?

Let's get down to the lovely part!

I am a Live Illustrator who captures moments in a discreet way. I have a package for illustrating your guests, capturing your wedding details, and illustrating snippets of your wedding day. I can even turn the paintings into a beautiful book or print for you!

I pride myself of unique luxury across the board, so I can't help but add in optional extras such as your beautifully painted monogram, personalised wording on your paintings, a floral border to match your colour theme, etc! These are just examples of how the illustrations can be personalised to your day!

Some examples of the services I offer:

Painted Guest Portraits - I set up a space on the day and paint your lovely friends and family. They can take home the portraits!

Details, Illustrated - I discreetly capture all the wonderful tiny details of your day (that you have spent SO LONG curating via Pinterest- I see you!) like your wedding table flowers, your sweet cart, your ring box and jewellery, your cake, and capture them in paint and ink for years to come. I curate all these paintings into a beautiful print or book for you to treasure, so when those details are gone, you'll always have the memories and a beautiful image of how your vision came together on the day. Lovely for Romantics with a keen eye for design

Illustrate my day package - I capture a mixture of details, guests and special moments your day. This can be anything from speech reactions, your something blue, flowers from the garden surrounds, the view out the window of the reception room, your wedding shoes, your first dance, the list goes on!

This sounds great, how do I enquire?

Yay, well this makes my heart happy!
