For the past few years painters have been offering their services to capture your event live as it unfolds before their eyes. They are known as live event painters/artists and are invited to paint at all kinds of celebrations from birthdays, anniversaries and of course weddings.
Why consider this you ask? Well for the art lover, you probably don’t need much persuasion; the concept surely speaks for itself! With everything being digital and instant these days through the dominance of social media; photos from events are abundant on Facebook, Instagram and many more platforms. Your wedding day pictures deserve to be more than a passing photo that shows up on a newsfeed next to a viral craze. Have that precious day recorded on canvas and hang it up for the years to come as a reminder of your gorgeous wedding day and the happiness you felt. Display it proud and don’t let it be a distant memory hidden in an album somewhere.
Here are some memorable highlights of a wedding captured on canvas:
The painting evolves during the wedding and can be a form of entertainment with the masterpiece being presented at the end for all guests to see. Couples can request what they want beforehand and normally work with the artist to make sure the right people are in position or even added after! We whole-heartedly believe that this "old school" medium is worth every penny!
