See behind the scenes, details on all live wedding paintings here including size, special requests, and backstories.

This wedding one was for the books - it was the very first wedding I ever booked with my business back in early 2019. Due to Covid-19, it was postponed twice, but it finally happened and it was so very beautiful.


This was the largest canvas I have painted on to date, 36"x48". I attended the ceremony at the church, and recorded their final moments of the ceremony. I then traveled to the Mississauga convention centre where the reception was being held and I got to work.


Painting on such a large scale was a challenge, I had to bring my studio easel in order to hold the full canvas, and there was a lot of tippy toes as I reached to paint the top end of the canvas.


By the end of the night I had accomplished much more than I anticipated with the newlyweds fully painted in, with a great likeness and touch up work to be done only on the background.

S & S celebrated their wedding in downtown Kitchener at The Walper Hotel. They had given creative freedom when it came to which part from the ceremony to include for the live wedding painting, I opted for the celebratory moment in which they were walking down the aisle together. Specific requests for the painting were to include the cellist (who was amazing!), as well as adding their two precious cats Mister and Patches.

M & M had the most beautiful reception decor and florals. M had requested the live wedding painting to have a bigger focus to be placed on the room, the decor, and the environment itself compared to having larger portraits. The canvas was a larger (24x30") which allowed for much more room decor to be included.
