Interactive Entertainment: Treat your guests to a live art experience that goes beyond traditional wedding favours. Our artist sets up an easel at your event, allowing guests to watch as their portraits come to life—a captivating and memorable addition to your celebration.

Instant Keepsakes: Live portrait paintings serve as instant keepsakes, providing your guests with a tangible and meaningful memento that they'll proudly display in their homes for years to come.

I offer two packages:

Mini Package

  • Charged at a rate of $250 per hour
  • An optional gift for your guests; not all guests will receive a portrait
  • Complimentary A5-sized portrait of the wedding couple

Full Package

  • All guests who want a portrait will receive a portrait
  • Any portraits not completed on the day will be completed afterwards from photos taken during the event
  • Complimentary A5-sized portrait of the wedding couple

On average, I can complete each live portrait within 10-12 minutes, ensuring an efficient and entertaining process for your guests.

Either myself or my assistant will take pictures of your guests, and I will paint them from their photos. That way, they can get back to dancing and having fun! Once completed and packaged, guests can collect their portraits by the end of the event.

I am currently able to create a maximum of 10 live couple portraits per hour.

If you choose a full package and have additional guests, I am able to create further portraits after the wedding, from photos taken during the event.

Please note, guests can be in one portrait each, and the portraits are for guests only, not vendors.

The size of the live portrait paintings is typically photograph size of 5x7 inches, providing a convenient and portable keepsake for your guests. Each portrait is carefully packaged to ensure its safe transport and is presented in a protective sleeve, making it easy for guests to take home and display.

The complimentary portrait of the wedding couple is size A5 (148x210mm). Different sizes are available on request.

I am based in Sydney, Australia, but I regularly travel all over Australia to paint at weddings. My interstate travel fee is AU$600.

I do not charge a travel fee for travel within 100km of my home (located in Sefton, NSW).

I charge $80 for travel within NSW and further than 100km from Sefton.

Definitely! After I provide the initial quote, we can organise a catch up via Zoom or phone call (whatever you're comfortable with) to make sure we’re the right fit. It's also an opportunity to ask any questions you might have, as I want you to feel totally happy with your decision.
