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

Thank you much for the gorgeous venue portrait. It arrived so quickly and you were very patient with my edit requests. I can’t wait to give this to my husband on our wedding day!
I was very pleased with the service I got from Letterfest. From order to delivery in 1 week was very impressive, particularly as I was fussy and asked for more than a few changes once they sent me the proof. Well worth paying £3 for this service! The finished work looks great in the quality oak frame and is situated in pride of place in our living room. The quality of the illustration is great and the colouring makes it look very contemporary. All in all a fantastic service for the price. Thanks Letterfest!
This is the second time I have ordered one of these framed sketches from Letterfest. They are an ideal alternative to the traditional ‘something silver, crystal, gold etc.’ and provide a perfect modern memory of the special wedding day venue.
The first one I purchased was for my parents and the second was for a friend who i recommended them to, I’m sure it won’t be the last!
The quality of the portrait and the service from Letterfest has been outstanding once again.
Gorgeous, my husband loved it. Great idea doing the proof as I amended it twice before final approval and Letterfest were very accommodating with the changes
