Illustrated Bridesmaid Gift

Following seeing my artwork at The National Wedding Show, at the NEC, Birmingham, Charlotte got in touch with me. She was looking for a unique gift to give to each of her bridesmaids. Instead of the usual portraits I draw, Charlotte simply wanted an illustrated piece of art with the words 'La Dolce Vita' in the centre - a perfect memento of her wedding day in Sicily. Charlotte gave me a list of things to include in the illustration such as a bottle of Limoncello, Sicilian Folk Band instruments and Wedding Bells. I incorporated all the items into a wreath-like drawing, making sure to keep to her colour-scheme of Orangey-Coral, Navy and White.

Charlotte also commissioned a Bride and Groom Portrait to display at her wedding in Sicily - 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!"
