The supplier every wedding needs!

We booked Amelia later on in our planning after coming across her page and we are soooo glad that we did! From the moment of enquiry to the day itself, Amelia was professional, kind and beyond knowledgeable making the process so easy and efficient - a dream supplier in amongst the stress of planning a wedding!

From experience, once an invoice is paid a lot of wedding suppliers can seem to forget about you and communication seems to drop off on the build up to the day which for some can be the most nerve-wracking part but Amelia went above on beyond right up to, on the day itself and even after as well! Nothing was too much trouble and everything was communicated so incredibly well that we had no worries or questions regarding anything. Amelia also involved us heavily in the design process prior to our day and made amends to suit our vision and everything she created was truly incredible. We had so many guests on the day and even now (6 months later!) say what an incredible addition Amelia was to our wedding. Everyone was so happy with their illustrations and the quality of them, someone even asked me where they should pay for them they were so good!

A dream supplier that I am still in touch with now and can’t wait to order more of her work. Amelia at Honeybea Illustrates really cares and it truly shines through in everything she does.

Amazing and Talented

We hired Amelia for our wedding after seeing her brilliant pictures at a wedding fayre. The pictures she produced were breathtaking and a real talking point for everyone who attended. We have kept our illustration and I know others treasure these as a momento of the day.

Perfect addition

What an exciting addition to any wedding! Our guests loved it! Lovely keepsakes from the day for all ❤️ Amelia is professional but fun and so easy to chat to, chatting to guests at the wedding about her work etc. I’d always wanted a live artist and I’m so glad I came across Amelia it was just perfect in every way

Absolutely amazing!

I am so so glad we booked Amelia for our wedding. She was so professional and organised when it came to booking, catching up before the big day and on the wedding day itself. The paintings she did of our guests were incredible and we also love the one she did of us. Our guest were absolutely raving about her and still are now. If you are considering booking her I would say it’s an absolute must!
