Live Wedding and Event Painting in Cape Town

I’m at that age where all of my friends seem to be getting married, and so weddings are kind of front of mind at the moment! Naturally, for me this means a lot of time spent on Pinterest.

Somewhere along this wedding strewn Pinterest heavy adventure, I discovered the exciting concept of live event painting.

 Live wedding painting is the creation of a piece of art from a scene at your wedding. The artist literally whips up a painting at your wedding of you and your guests enjoying the day!

What is really exciting is that a wedding painting is a unique memento for a couple of their special day.

There are tons of ways to capture memories at your wedding, but many of these end up in books on shelves or coffee tables gathering dust, whereas a painting hanging in your home is a more visible way to treasure the memories. It’s also an awesome conversation starter for guests. 

A live painting also provides fun entertainment for wedding guests, as they get to follow the painting’s creation from start to finish. They can see the different stages of the painting being developed and find themselves on the canvas. the couple can also create prints and thank you cards from the finished piece.

If you would like a live painting of your wedding, please get in touch for commissions! I would love to capture your wedding or event on canvas for you to treasure! You can check out the piece I did above and some of my other work in the gallery to get an idea of my style 🙂
