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 firstname.lastname@example.org (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
