I was recently asked by sweet friends of mine (T&K) to create a special print for their friends’ upcoming wedding. They had the perfect phrase in mind, a little reminicent of one of my favourite songs “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow” byThe Shirelles. They wanted something a little swirly, a little girly, and it had to be TIFFANY BLUE! A delicious choice of colour.

I usually do some sketches, get down the right track, and make a few edits when doing these type of commissions. I can personalise every stage of the process, even include framing, but T&K requested an A4 print and they framed it at home. My prints are all on smooth, matte white 230GSM archival paper.

This was my first sketch, which I then coloured. I suggested perhaps adding the special date and the newlywed names.


T&K couldnt decide on how traditional the design should be, so I mocked up a super swirly option, which divided opinion!


I found a compromise with some printed type instead- a perfect mix of traditional and modern. Here’s the final product.


Luckily I was told the print ‘went down an absolute treat’ with the newlyweds (hooray!) I’m chuffed they’ll have a special image to always remind them of their big day.

I have known Clemmy (AKA Michael Clement) for a long time. He met my husband back in the day at college, where they both studied, and had a passion for, photography.

We watched Clem develop (groan) as a photographer, and were lucky enough for him to take our wedding photos in 2011. It was great having someone we trust on our day. He really understands the type of images his clients want. (…and here’s a sneaky peek of our fave photo he nabbed of us!)


This year seems to have been a particularly busy one for Clem- great news for a freelance photographer- gaining a good reputation for both studio and events photography in the south east of England.

At the beginning of the year he contacted me to commission bespoke artworks for his ‘full day package’ customers. In a time when printed photographs are losing their place in favour of Facebook albums, Clem wanted to create something for families to enjoy and keep. 

The solution is beautiful, functional, personal and simple.

I enjoy carefully plotting the placement of the lettering and finalising the lines in my Pentel FP10 (which I LOVE- can anyone recommend a similar product to test out?) I also love how the couples’ names intertwine in a totally unique way each time!

I scan and clean the linework in photoshop using a pen tablet – the only time I use it, infact! It’s perfect for smoothing out curves and making tiny adjustments to balance the image. The final artwork is printed A5, and still has the ‘brushmark’ quality to it, so vectorizing is unnecessary. The process has similaries and differences to my usual process, despite looking so different to most of my work.
