Wedding Car Fingerprint Illustration

My very good friends, Lisa and Mike married in April 2015. I asked them what they would like for their wedding present from myself and they asked for one of my Bespoke Fingerprint Illustrations. It was my absolute pleasure to produce this piece for them and to be there to spend their special day with them - amazing memories! 

In advance of their wedding day, Lisa sent me photos from her dress fitting, make-up and hair trials so I knew how to style her in the drawing. She also sent me images of the suit and tie that Mike would be wearing and of the classic Beauford they’d chosen for their wedding car. Lisa had a clear idea of what she’d like illustrating and gave me a concise brief to include the two of them in the car (with a hamper full of champagne on the back) and of course balloons on strings coming up from the car. She asked me to add each guest’s name to a balloon so that she would know who each print belonged to - and to save on people getting too ‘free’ with where they placed their print!

It was fantastic to see my illustration displayed in all it’s glory, A1 size atop an easel in the main dining room at Armathwaite Hall, Cumbria with all the guests crowded round eager to add their fingerprint ‘balloon’ to the drawing.
