Live Wedding Painting
Your day captured as it unfolds
Years of painting outdoors has honed my ability to capture the ambience and spirit of a scene very quickly. I specialise in loose, impressionistic but sophisticated oil paintings, which lends itself perfectly to painting your special event, in person, as the moments unfold.
I am available for live wedding paintings in the South of England. If you are interested in a unique way to remember your day, then please do get in touch to discuss.
"I can't express in words how much we absolutely adore your painting.Thank you so much for giving us such a precious memory of the day and one that will come with us as we go through the next chapters of our lives together".
Discuss your vision
Together we can discuss your vision for the painting taking into account the venue, season and timings. As I work in one session from life, my sizes are usually below A2 for live painting. Larger sizes are possible but would probably be done from sketches and photos rather than as a 'live painting'.
My style is loose and impressionistic, in the limited time available on the day I will gather all the information I need to convey the mood, ambience and joy. Where I set up will depend on the view that is desired but I can keep as discreet as possibly (and keep out of the way of the photography!) I have a small travel easel that I would need to have space for and possible a dust sheet if the painting is inside.
Back in the studio I will refine the painting and put in the finishing touches. I will then send photos of the final painting to be accepted or if any final tweaks are needed.
I create beautiful bespoke frames for my commissions. Please see information on my framing service.
Prices and timing
I am quite flexible and can be booked fairly last minute if needed. I usually need about a month post-wedding for touching up back in the studio.
Prices depend on the location, travel, size and framing options but as a rough guide:
20 x 25cm £650
24 x 30cm £750
30 x 40cm £950
I can do any custom sizes but these are some of my popular options.
(unframed sizes, framing will add around 12cm to the dimensions).
