Frequently Asked Questions

How does it work?

Guests can come up to my station during your event to have their photo taken. I create stylised watercolour fashion illustrations from these photos so your guests can enjoy your event.

How many guests can you paint at one event?

I can usually create an average of 10 couple portraits per hour (20 people). I can paint for up to 6 hours if your event timeline allows for this which can cover up to 120 people. For large events, you can opt to add a studio session which is an after-event service where I paint any remaining guests that were unable to be painted at your event.

Can you travel for my event?

Of course! I love to travel and would be delighted to travel to illustrate at your event. I am based in Adelaide so travel fees will apply for interstate or international travel. Interstate rates: silver $2000, gold $2500, platinum $3000 + $750 travel fee) Please get in touch for international travel availability and quote for my services and travel.

Can you paint more than two people at once?

I try to keep each illustration at a maximum of two people per portrait so I can paint as many guests as possible. I will happily paint families with babies/small children. If you have many families to be illustrated, please let me know in advance so I can prepare illustration cards for this. Please note that families/groups take longer to paint.

How do we book?

You can get in contact via email or through filling out an enquiry form. If I am available for your date, you can secure your date with a non-refundable 50% deposit.

How far in advance do we need to book?

I recommend reaching out 6-12 months before your event to ensure that your date is available. Popular months during wedding season are likely to be fully booked in advance. If I am available for your date, you are welcome to book me for your event at any time.

What do we need to provide for you?

I kindly ask that a large table with 2 chairs be provided for me to work on the day. All artist materials will be provided.

Can we request specific people to be illustrated?

Of course! I now offer priority guest tokens for a set number of guests that will be prioritised during your event. For example, the newlyweds, parents of the couple, bridal party etc. During the event, guests will be illustrated on a first in, first painted basis if not a priority guest. If you have guests that are excited to have an illustration created, let them know to get in first to have their photo taken.

I have a large event with more than 120 people, how do we make sure each guest gets a portrait?

It is recommended that you book a package with enough hours to complete illustrations for each of your guests. If your event is larger than 120+ a complimentary studio session is included in the platinum package where all remaining portraits are created post-wedding and sent directly to the couple. A studio session can be added to any booking if not already included.
