Jessica’s friend, Nicola initially got in touch to commission her Illustrated Fingerprint Tree, following meeting me at The National Wedding Show in Birmingham back in October. Following this she asked me to draw a custom portrait for Jessica. Jessica had recently married Nicola’s brother, so to welcome her into the family, she requested a Wedding Dress Illustration of her wearing her dress to give her for Christmas. She, (as secretively as a Christmas Elf), asked her brother to send Jessica’s favourite photographs of herself from their big day for me to use a reference for the drawing. Nicola also emailed me some photos of Jessica’s bouquet so that I could include this in the design - I adore the pastel peaches and whites!
