For a unique wedding gift, why not commission a beautiful print sketch of their venue, hand-drawn by local artists working in North Devon.
The drawing style is clean and contemporary with the sky and surroundings picked out in a range of colours. You can provide your own photo after ordering, just upload them by going to 'my orders' and submitting an 'order enquiry', or we can work from Google street view or a weblink (see below for instructions).
Every illustration can be further personalised with a printed message. Choose from three typefaces (script, handwritten or a modern sans-serif). Your text will be printed on two lines, the top line being a slightly larger size eg: 'Mandy & Russ / St Michael's Church, 5th July 2012.'
If you want to include two images we can also print both the church and reception venue in our double portrait.
How to provide a photo:
We can work from an image on a website, just send us the link, or your own photo - upload one here, or email it to [email protected] (you must do this if ordering a double portrait with two images)
About the illustration:
Your illustration will be hand-drawn black and white sketch of the property, not a computer generated image, so we can add/remove things you don’t want eg: cars or lamp posts, and we won't include dustbins, satellite dishes etc. We will sketch the view from the photograph (ie the same perspective). It’s a simplified drawing of the house but if you want more detail we also offer offer different styles- please see the 'see sellers complete range' on right of this page. The drawing will be portrait or landscape that best suits the image. Although the house will be in black and white, we colour the sky duck-egg blue, the grass a sage green and paths stone or grey. Bright paintwork such as front doors or painted concrete will also be coloured. We cannot include people in the drawing.
If you've asked for a digital proof, we'll email a proof prior to printing

Very speedy delivery, lovely high quality product, great customer service
We were absolutely delighted with the personalised wedding venue portrait for our son and daughter in laws 1st wedding anniversary, needless to say they were too! Would highly recommend, excellent communication and customer service.
Thankyou for this picture. Our friends loved it for their first wedding anniversary!
Very pleased with the picture . Helpful and friendly staff especially Tom whom I spoke to.
Spoke with Camille before ordering as I wanted a really prompt delivery for our sons 1st Wedding Anniversary and also needed to view the portrait prior to confirming delivery which allows changes to the portrait, which is offered for a £3 fee plus £6.50 for very prompt delivery. So I viewed the portrait on the Thursday And it was just as the photo I supplied with the wording I wanted, so confirmed back by email and phone to Camille and I received the finished framed portrait the next day Friday as promised in time to gift to our son and his partner for their Wedding Anniversary that sane day. Excellent portrait and great service and they loved their 1st Anniversary gift (paper).
