Congratulations! Whether it’s yours, a friend's or your family’s a wedding is one of the most memorable days.
There will be some lovely wedding photographs, but how about something a little different? A stunning hand-drawn architectural portrait of the wedding venue, with the addition of a photograph of the happy couple, friends or family. Personalised with words of your choice a dona B. wedding venue portrait will bring back memories of the day for years to come.
Why not add one to your wedding list!
If your wedding has already happened then ask your guests to send you photos they are happy for you to use. Try and ensure the size of the image is a big as possible and that I would be able to cut around you without losing anything.
You then need to browse the Formats page to decide whether you would like a framed or unframed canvas or a framed or unframed print. If you choose a framed option think about what colour frame would be suitable for where the print will hang.
Also decide if you would like to add some personalised text to the print. On the Formats page you will see the font options for your text so think about what style you would like your text to be and also what you would like it to say.
Submit your order - When you are happy that you have everything that you need please purchase your chosen option from my Shop or complete and submit the order form on the Commission page. I will be in touch soon afterwards.
Take or find a photograph of the venue you want drawn. For Bristol civil ceremony venues I am producing studies from a range of sketches and photographs of my own which will make this step very simple. For venues outside Bristol you will just need to email me your photographs after you submit your order.
You will also need a photo of you from the day. If your wedding is in the future then ask someone at the wedding to take a range of photos of you that could be used as shown in the examples here. A 5 megapixel camera or bigger on full resolution should take a good enough image. You will need permission to use them so please ensure your friend or family member is happy with this.
If you would like to give a wedding venue print as a gift but would rather the recipient made all the choices then why not order the voucher option? It’s an easy way to give something very special to a friend or family member. I will explain to them what photographs they need to take and what the process is when they redeem the voucher. What a lovely surprise!
