For a unique christening or baptism gift why not commission a beautiful sketch of the church, hand-drawn to order. The drawing is clean and contemporary with the sky and surroundings picked out in muted colours. Every illustration can be personalised with your choice of message.

Bright paintwork such as front doors or painted concrete will also be coloured.

Amazing gift! Highly recommend

I recently ordered this gift for a christening and sent a picture of the church and asked them to remove a tree in front of the church. When it arrived it exceeded my expectations! The picture is brilliant, clear and not cluttered. I also like that it was framed. We added writing such as name, church and date and my friend loved the personalisation of the gift. Will definitely be using again for other gifts!

Simply beautiful

Lovely quality and simple design. Makes for a treasured memory.

Perfect gift

A lovely unusual but very personal wedding gift. Do order the digital proof as the website is a little confusing. Only niggle I feel you should see a proof before ordering without paying extra.
