It take approximately 10-12 minutes per person including drawing and painting time on A4 size paper, or approximately 7-9 minutes per person on A5 size paper whether I'm sketching someone posing live or from a photo.

For wedding receptions it's recommended to have guests pose for photos when they come in, which I then sketch/paint from during the duration of event and they collect later upon completion.

Numbers will be capped according to the time frame allowance if the sketches are required to be finished by the end of your reception. If the sketches are not required to be finished by the end of 5 hours consecutive sketching time then arrangements can be made to complete them in my home studio and deliver them after the event.

For receptions I will require space for a small table and chair (I can bring my own if needed) and 3-4 meters of open space where the subject can pose in front of me. I'll also require an adequate amout of light.

For ceremonies I will require a table and chair setup for sketching your VIPs but will move around with the chair and/or standing once the ceremony begins. 

For receptions where I'm sketching guests, there are two options:

One option is to use a number system so interested parties may take a number and keep an eye on the whiteboard for their turn to pose for me in real time. Alternatively, in instances where there's a larger number of guests and/or time constraints, I can take photos of everyone interested at the beginning and work on the sketches through the course of the evening, to be collected upon completion. 

For ceremonies I will prebook times to sketch your VIP guests prior to the ceremony starting. 

To sketch guests at your reception I use an oil based pencil and gouache paint on cardstock or bristol paper with your wedding information/logo printed on the front or back (your choice).

For ceremony sketches I use oil based pencil and watercolour/gouache paint on hot pressed watercolour paper.

I guarantee at least 10 painted sketches from your ceremony, including one fully painted sketch of the wedding party in their background surroundings on A4 watercolour paper.

Also included are sketches of your VIP guests prior to the ceremony commencing (the number depends on the amount of time available) and sketches of the Bride and Groom as they say their vows and while they pose for photos and interact with guests immediately after the ceremony. 

I can sketch between 6-8 people per hour on A5 paper for a maximum of 5 consecutive hours, which amounts to a total of 30-40 people.

I can finish a higher quantity of sketches in the following week at my home studio using the photos I've taken at the reception, and deliver the completed original sketches to you upon completion.

Numbers will be capped according to the agreed time frame, which means everyone interested may not be able to obtain a sketch.


In this case the host may choose which guests are entitled to a sketch by organizing a list prior to the event or I can sketch guests on a first come, first serve basis, displaying a "fully booked" sign once capacity for the time frame has been reached.


Guests who aren't able to get a sketch done can have the option to order a sketch at a discounted rate through my website which I would complete at a later date.

Jennie brought our wedding moments to life through her skillful live sketching and it was a huge hit with our guests! Everyone was amazed by her ability to quickly turn candid moments into beautiful and personalised keepsakes. This added an extra touch of magic to our special day. We highly recommend Jennie for an unforgettable addition at your wedding or any other event.

Jenny was great for our wedding! We unfortunately didn’t get a chance to meet her before the wedding but she was so easy to work with and fit around all the things we had planned. She brought her own things and made sure they matched the style of our wedding. During our short ceremony, she managed to get a lot of paintings done of both us (bride & groom) and of our guests. It was great to see our wedding through Jenny’s paintings. After the wedding she scanned all the paintings so we could have them digitally and then personally dropped off the hard copies for us. She definitely takes pride & care in her work and I would recommend her to anyone planning a wedding. Thanks Jenny!
