Custom Bride and Groom Portrait
Charlotte got in touch following The National Wedding Show, at the NEC, Birmingham, where she came across my work. Having seen 'The "Gemma"' Wedding Dress Illustration of the bride in her Maggie Sottero gown, she was keen to have her own piece like this drawn - especially as she too was to wear a Maggie Sottero wedding dress. She was looking for a unique piece of art to to sit alongside their guest book at their wedding reception, so after much discussion, we settled on a Bride and Groom Illustration in this style. We had to be quite secretive so as to keep Robert from seeing her dress before the big day!
As they were getting married in Sicily, Charlotte chose the wording ‘Baciami sotto la luce di mille stele’ which means 'Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars' (lyrics from one of their favourite songs) in Italian.
Charlotte also commissioned a Bespoke Illustration to give to each of her bridesmaids - see it here.
"I was blown away by my wedding portrait, I couldn’t imagine an ‘illustrated us’, but what Hannah produced was so much more than I could have hoped for – I can’t wait to show it off at our wedding before it takes pride of place on our picture wall.
As for my bespoke bridesmaid illustration – Hannah completely understood what I wanted from the piece and turned my written ideas into something so special I can’t wait to give it to my bridesmaids in May.
Thank you once again – It is such a personal service and it’s been an absolute pleasure to deal with you. I am only sad I don’t need anything else for now as would love to see what else you would come up with!"
