Rose Popay is an award-winning artist who can draw live at your wedding! Creating exciting paintings of people and events, she can vibrantly capture your special day, even involving your guests in creating a collaborative artwork that’s yours to keep forever.
The fun begins with Rose drawing the bride and groom, some main features of the venue as well as some of the guests. Then it’s time for your guests to join in! They can draw each other, memories of the couple or perhaps even the food. Rose will continue to draw alongside to give the canvas a strong structure as well as encouraging others to be creative. The picture is then laid down ready for Rose and your guests to paint and by the end of the evening the bride and groom are presented with the canvas. What an amazing gift!
It’s a charming record of your wedding day, but also so much more; it entertains as you watch it develop. The picture can be made into thank you cards for guests and you could also have quick fire drawn portraits done on the day too. Or, if you send Rose a favourite photo, she can create a drawing in advance – a lovely present for the bride and groom or bridesmaids. She can even make a canvas out of your wedding photos after the day itself. Wedding prices start around £350.
For something that little bit different, Rose can also offer a mixture of more risqué entertainment with her fabulous art. With her strong performance background, she can appear as a character [The Art Tart] to liven up your crowd. She’s performed all over the world as part of The Natural Theatre and her travels have influenced her artistic style and fed her passion for the bold vibrant utse of colours when painting. For a glimpse at Rose’s performance art, try her YouTube channel where you’ll find a cocktail of Beryl Cooke, Rolf Harris, Marilyn Monroe and a flagon of Dave's leopard skin scrumpy. Her performance can incorporate live drawing of your wedding and reception from its most flattering angle or even, for a truly unique touch, right in amongst the guest involving them in the art work itself.
Take a look at her website, catch her on Facebook and Twitter and best of all find her in person at our Fair. Rose will be there, so come and meet this wonderfully talented woman and find out how she can give you that unique way to remember your wedding day. She’ll be offering bargain portraits, so dress to impress!
