Live wedding illustration – prices & booking

WANT TO DISCUSS BOOKING ME FOR YOUR WEDDING?
GET IN TOUCH

Please get in touch using the form below, and enquire about your date. My live wedding illustration prices and package options are just under the form.

I am London based, with a car, and my fee includes weddings inside the M25. Please ask for a quote for travel throughout the UK. I charge a standard fee per mile, and may require an accommodation supplement for venues a few hours from London.
I am happy to travel to destination weddings abroad, as long as my expenses are covered.

Covid 19 note: If you are concerned about booking due to further government restrictions on weddings, rest assured that my cancellation policy is very flexible. A wedding during the pandemic may not be the wedding you wanted, and I want everyone to be safe. So I’m always happy to reschedule, or return your booking fee if I’m not available on your new date.

    Live wedding illustration packages

    Basic package: from £600*
    • 3 hours guest portraits

      I’ll paint your guests for up to 3 (continuous) hours – either in the first lull after the ceremony while guests mingle and you take formal photos, or in the second lull after the wedding breakfast and speeches.
      I either use a first come, first served list, or you can give your closest friends and family priority tokens. If your lull is shorter than 3 hours, I can continue from photos I’ll take before people are seated.
      (I can paint 4 to 7 couples or 6 to 10 singles per hour, depending on style etc.)
      * May not be available on peak summer dates

    Half day mixed package: from £700
    • A live painting of your wedding ceremony

      This can be planned to fit a particular mount or frame, and framed on the day.

    • Up to 3 hours guest portraits

      Guests pose for me to paint them in the first lull after the ceremony, until the wedding breakfast starts.
      (I can paint 4 to 7 couples or 6 to 10 singles per hour, depending on style etc.)

    All day live package: from £900
    • 9 hours live illustrations of the day

      This live wedding illustration package could include the bridal preparation, the ceremony, flowers, cake cutting, speeches, the newly married couple in front of the venue, the first dance – whatever you ask for! You take all the artwork home on the day.
      Posed guest portraits are not included in this package – only the couple will be painted.
      I am happy to discuss planning the size and number of paintings to fit a particular set of frames, and framing them on the day.

    All day portrait package: from £1000
    • 7 to 8 hours guest portraits

      I paint guests live during both lulls – the first lull after the ceremony while they mingle and you take formal photos, and also in the second lull after the speeches, before the first dance.

      If the wedding breakfast is a more informal buffet, I continue to live draw guests who aren’t eating. I use any seated wedding breakfast and speeches time to draw more guests from photos I take beforehand. This way, I am able to maximise my time on site, and paint as many of your guests as possible.

      (I can paint 4 to 7 couples or 6 to 10 singles per hour, depending on style etc.)

    All day mixed package: from £1050
    • A live painting of your wedding ceremony

      This can be planned to fit a particular mount or frame, and framed on the day.

    • A set of live illustrations* of the day

      A set of live illustrations for you to keep, featuring flowers, cake cutting, speeches – whatever you ask for, in any style or size up to A3… these will mostly be done during the wedding breakfast while guests are occupied.

    • A few hours* of guest portraits

      I’ll paint your guests while they are mingling – good times for this are in the post-ceremony lull while you are taking formal photos, and in the second lull after the wedding breakfast and speeches, before the first dance.
      (I can paint 4 to 7 couples or 6 to 10 singles per hour, depending on style etc.)

    *Timing of portraits vs live illustration can be tweaked to have more or less time each, depending on what is more important to you – you get about 8-9 hours painting time in total.

    Extra time: £120 / hour*
    • I can do up to 4 hours extra time

      Often couples want me to come earlier, and capture the bride having her hair and makeup done, or perhaps stay later and paint the first dance and the party kicking off. Or perhaps you want me to stay painting guests until the party is over, to produce as many portraits as possible, on top of what is included in whichever of my live wedding illustration packages you end up choosing!
      *If the extra time is arranged on the day, not booked beforehand, it will be charged at £150/hour, and must be paid within a week.
