About Louise Nicholson - Live Event Painting

Louise Nicholson is an extraordinarily talented artist who will depict the scene of your wedding day in beautifully vibrant colours. This wonderfully alternative form of capturing the essence of your wedding day will be a cherished memento that will act as a timeless family heirloom for the generations. In addition, your guests will be fascinated in how the painting evolves as Louise works on your wedding masterpiece.

Service offered

This is artistry and also wonderful entertainment as your guests remain curious to see how they will appear in the painting. Louise will stay over the course of the day and refine her work with more detail. She will also take photos as references and finish the painting in her studio.

How she works

She arrives at your venue up to two hours early (if possible) to set herself up and to get started on the background of the painting. By the time your guests arrive she'll have a good amount of paint on the canvas. She'll paint as the day progresses, adding in more people and details. She will take photos as well so she can refer to them back in the studio. When she's finished painting at your event she'll take the painting back to her studio to finish up, adding detail and complexity. The painting will be ready for you in the next couple of weeks.

    Amazing Experience, Super Friendly, Made My Wedding!

    We were originally unsure if we would do a painting of our wedding, since it sounded like a cool "nice to have" but perhaps unaffordable. We were lucky to find Louise, who was a super star and easy to work with. We discussed the concept of the artwork until we were comfortable going into it. She arrived early to get set up, and was a joy for our guests to talk to and interact with. Many of our guests mentioned after the wedding how they enjoyed talking with her. Not long after the wedding, we picked up the final piece, and boy were we impressed! It captured everything we could ask for - the mood, the people, the little things. Everything about it was perfect. We love it and thank Louise for her hard work and attention to detail! Thank you!

    Thanks so much for your kind words Alice and Allan! It was indeed a pleasure to paint at your beautiful wedding. I'm so glad I was able to capture your first dance as you two had obviously worked so hard on the choreography. It was a blast!

    The way Louise captured our first dance is so special. The facial expressions of our friends and family are incredible and pointing them all out is a lot of fun. Thank you Louise for creating this beautiful painting, we love to show it off!

    Live Reception Painting

    Louise did an amazing job in painting our first dance at our wedding reception. She not only captured the moment in the most beautiful way possible, she took the time and effort to make sure our closest family members were included in the painting. We were also on a time contraint as my husband and I had to fly out one week after our reception but Louise was able to finish the painting and she went out of her way to hand deliver it to our home! I would highly recommend Louise not just for her talent, but for her professionalism and how kind she is!! She truly goes above and beyond and was one of the easiest wedding vendors we worked with!

    Can't say enough about Louise, she is simply amazing. We received so many praises about our decision to capture the beginning of our "Happily Ever After" with a painting and we are so grateful that we got to work with Louise. She is so incredibly talented and it is simply amazing the way she captured our ceremony. Our guests loved talking with her while they watched our special moment get captured on canvas. She is so approachable and easy going; it is like she is one of the family. Everyone who sees her work comments on what a beautiful job she did and how easy it is to distinguish everyone in the picture. Thank you so much Louise we just love what you have done for us and we will treasure our painting forever.

    We had a fantastic experience working with Louise.  Having her paint our wedding was such a special touch, and gave us something really unique to remember our day.  Louise was so wonderful to work with. Many of our guests commented that they enjoyed speaking with Louise and seeing the painting take shape.  The painting itself turned out incredibly - it is stunningly beautiful in person.  Louise captured our ceremony perfectly and we were amazed by how well she was able to really capture each of the people in the painting (the bridal party as well as the guests) so they were instantly recognizable. Without hesitation, we absolutely recommend Louise for all couples considering adding a unique touch to their wedding and an incredible keepsake.
