We’d definitely recommend Kirsty!
The most amazing experience!
A huge hit!
Thanks so much
Beautiful illustrations that our guests loved!
Super friendly and efficient
Perfect For Every Special Occasion
Kirsty came to a recent 80th birthday party, which took place in our garden on a gloriously warm July evening. She provided some absolutely beautiful little illustrations of our guests and sat in the garden, enabling people to come and watch her as she completed each drawing. Everyone was delighted at the opportunity of receiving a small momento of the occasion and all commented on how unusual it was to have this kind of activity provided, rather than a photographer.
Kirsty was professional, considerate and helpful and took time to discuss exactly what we wanted from our event. Highly recommended!
Amazing illustrator and great fun!
Our guests LOVED their illustrations!
My only regret is not booking her for longer! If you're debating which package to go for, definitely choose more hours so more of your guests can enjoy her gorgeous illustrations of them!
Thanks so much Kirsty ☺️

One of the best decisions you'll make for your wedding day!
In the run-up to the day, we met with Kirsty online so that we could go through any final details. She was friendly, professional and we knew we were in good hands.
On the day she turned up in plenty of time, and managed to create lots of gorgeous drawings of our guests.
So many people commented on what a lovely touch, and what a great idea it was.
Kirsty - thank you for providing us with such a unique and fantastic service!
Amazing guest portraits!
We can't wait to send our bride and groom photo to her and get our portrait back!
The best addition to any wedding!
A wonderful wedding addition!
