A personalised and professionally illustrated wedding venue portrait.
The wedding venue portrait is a beautiful contemporary illustration that you will treasure. Makes for a thoughtful and heartfelt keepsake; a perfect gift or simply something you may wish to commission to commemorate your own wedding.
Each wedding venue portrait is illustrated by hand by Natalie Ryan, a professional illustrator who launched 2by2 Creative 17 years ago; Natalie will sketch out your wedding venue portrait, paint with water colour and finish with pencil and ink. Once your wedding venue portrait has been created the personalisation is added and the portrait is professionally printed onto museum quality 100% cotton fine art papers using a superior printing process called Giclée printing (see below for a full description). If you would prefer to receive the original artwork please choose 'original artwork' from the 'illustration type' option on the right of the screen. Please note, with the original the personalisation is added by hand. Each portrait, be it Giclée or Original, is signed, dated and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
We work from a single image, you can upload an image after ordering enter a web link in the box on the right. Alternatively please email your image to [email protected] with your order number.
You can choose to have your wedding venue portrait framed. We work with a professional framing house, chosen for their superior quality and expertise, who expertly finish our wedding venue portraits. Frames are 21mm wide flat shaped picture mouldings. Made from real ayous wood with a paint finish. Our work fits into standard high street frames if this is more convenient.
Natalie’s illustrations are professionally hand drawn (this is not a digital, computer generated portrait), if you have selected the 'original artwork' you'll receive a watercolour illustration created on textured watercolour paper by hand with pen, penci and watercolours. The fine are prints are created by hand, scanned and printed in the UK using a superior printing process called Giclée. Giclée is a process commonly found in art galleries and is a fine art digital printing process combining pigment based inks with high quality archival quality paper to achieve prints of superior archival quality, light fastness and stability.
