A Special Wedding Present - Watercolour Painting

If you're planning your wedding, you'll probably have lots of people asking you what you'd like as a wedding present. You may be scratching your head to come up with special ideas, especailly if you already have everything for your home together.

Have you thought of having a specially commissioned painting of your venue? I am also an artist and I do watercolour commissions, mainly of wedding venues. You can have the painting personalised with your names and date of wedding, or just the name of the venue. You will have a unique piece of art which will remind you of your special day forever.

The top photo is Brinkburn Priory which was for a wedding gift, the photo below is of Lodore Falls Hotel and was a first wedding anniversary present for the client's husband. Both paintings were 10x8 in a 12x10 double mount.

If it's too late to get a piece commissioned for your wedding gift, then don't forget that the first wedding anniversary is paper! As well as mounted paintings, I do two sizes of smaller cards - A4 and A5. You could always give one as your anniversary card and then get it mounted and framed as a little reminder.

The card in the photo below was actaully painted for my aunt and uncle's 60th wedding anniversary! This is an 8x6 painting on an A4 card and you also get an envelope.

The card at the bottom is a very recent one of Lumley Castle in an A5 size. I forgot to take a proper photo if it so this was just using my phone!
