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).
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. Please allow up to 5 working days for your wedding venue portrait to be framed.
Frames are 21mm wide flat shaped picture mouldings. Made from real ayous wood with a paint finish. we have three options for the frame; oak, white and black. There's a handy guide in our images to show the different sizes & finishes. Our work fits into standard high street frames if this is more convenient.
Natalie’s illustrations are professionally 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. We print using top-of-the-range large format printers, using Ultrachrome HD ink and print on acid free impressive 100% cotton fine art papers. Our mounts are ‘ice white’ bevel-cut and PH neutral to protect your illustration.
About the artist: Natalie is a professional commercial illustrator whose work has been featured in Vogue, Elle, Tatler and beyond. She has illustrated many beautiful venues, churches and locations and her work is highly regarded.
If you'd prefer the original watercolour artwork instead of a superior giclée fine art print please see our 'original water colour portrait' listing where prices start at £240. The difference in cost is a matter of copyright, we’d be happy to explain the difference ahead of your order. Please allow an additional 21 days for original artwork to be completed.
Please also note if you choose to have your item framed please allow up to 10 working days on top of the "receive this item by" date. We require the same amount of time to complete the illustration and additional time thereafter for framing and delivery. If you wish to improve the framing timing you can order 'express framing' at an additional £70.00.
