When we heard about this new wedding service, we just had to share it with you! Imagine capturing your dream day as a beautiful piece of art that will rest as a reminder of your love-filled day. Now, we’re not talking photos – although these are extremely important, of course – but a live artist, who uses brushes and watercolours to capture the scene.
CharlotteAtkinson is an award winning published artist and illustrator, who was listed in the’Top Ten Best selling British Artists ‘2004 by the Fine Art Trade Guild. Winner of several awards, she has captivated the imagination of international art markets for over a decade.
Portrait of a wedding
Using her lifelong passion for figure drawing and painting skills, which she has perfected in Italy, Charlotte is now offering Live Wedding Paintings – a full day experience that is totally unique and can act as a great ice-breaker for guests to chat over, as your painting is created at your reception.
Her wedding services include event painting at the wedding venue, portrait of the bride and groom, as well as wedding dress and bouquet illustration. Armed with her easel, paints and brushes, she is happy to blend in the background and work alongside the photographer or videographer. In addition, her artistic talent provides unique entertainment for your guests, as they can watch the painting progress throughout the day.
“One of the wonderful things about having a painting created live is that I can include anything memorable about the day in any order as I see it – usually this includes the venue in some way, the happy couple together with a few guests, the cake and the colour scheme,” explains Charlotte.
“To give you some inspiration I have previously painted from balconies, inside marquees and sometimes outside to include the venue as the background.”
