Rubbish Portraits is a Live Portrait booth producing 3-minute portraits by my self Lucie Sheridan, an illustrator of over 20 years.


Yes, that's right! In just 3 minutes I paint your very own limited-edition portrait while you’re seated. I then hand your portrait through the front of the booth along with a branded hardback envelope for safekeeping.

Services Offered

Ideal for guests of all ages, I offer four hours of drawing which can be spread throughout your wedding to best suit your specific requirements. On average, every picture takes around three minutes to complete. You can then take away your portrait home with you at the end of the night in a branded envelope.

Personal touch to a wedding!!

We loved having Lucie at our wedding, she did such a brilliant job and all our guests loved getting their portraits done! Lucie ensured we knew exactly what was going on throughout the day and ensured that guests felt encouraged to get their portraits and many of them did! It was a great addition to a wedding a fab fun! Really recommend!

Rubbish Portraits makes your wedding memorable!

My partner came across Rubbish Portraits while searching for your less standard B&W / Vintage Photo Booth (think less tacky props and photos you'll never look at) and up popped Rubbish Portraits.

The instant response from looking at Lucie's Hitched profile and social platforms was WE NEED TO BOOK HER!!

Working in the wedding industry myself you do see a large portion of over saturated elements that are meant to make your day special and unique. Lucie and her Rubbish Portraits are ORIGINAL, UNIQUE, FUN, MEMORABLE and that's just scratching the surface.

Our guests loved their portraits and claimed they had NEVER seen anything like it before.

The whole process from initial enquiry, booking and communication between us and Lucie was seamless. Her skill and humour speaks for itself and her presence was an integral part of our day. We just need a frame to pop our portraits on the wall!!

LOVE LOVE LOVE - Go and book, before someone else does you honestly won't regret it.

Dreamlan Wedding, Dream Supplier!

Our guests had SO much fun in Lucie's Iive portrait booth at our wedding at Dreamland in Margate. What a brilliant idea, ingenious! And Lucie is such a pleasure to deal with, at every step she was communicative, co-operative and kind. Very highly recommended.

A brilliant addition to our wedding

We used Lucie at Rubbish Portraits for our wedding back in April and couldn't recommend her and her fabulous booth more - what a great idea!

We chose Rubbish Portraits instead of a photo-booth, and our guests had so much fun getting their portraits drawn on the day, we had so many compliments!

We have so many photos from photo booths stashed away and it was so lovely to have something different to frame as a momento of our special day. Lucie is also lovely and made everything run seamlessly!

Run, don’t walk to Rubbish Portraits!

I booked Lucie as a surprise for my now husband at our wedding in April 2022 - suffice to say it went down a storm! I was looking for something “out of the ordinary” that would get guests talking, for with the vibe of our slightly quirky venue and provide a cool souvenir to take home. Lucie delivered on all fronts - we had so many compliments from guests and many intend to frame their portraits as lasting memories! Thank so much Lucie!

Unique wedding day entertainment

Was great and really easy working with Lucie to have Rubbish Portraits at our wedding. Our guests loved it and went away with a fabulous gift from the day. No reason to have a standard photo booth when you could have Rubish Portraits at your event! Thanks again Lucie!

Great fun!

We were looking for something fun and original for the entertainment at our wedding. Lucie provided the perfect answer to this and we couldn’t be happier! Our guests loved the booth and their portraits! Lucie was great fun, personable and, to quote my now husband, ‘an all round good egg!’ Thanks so much 😊

Absolutely lovely

Having Lucie at our wedding was just so so joyful. Guests loved her, as did we. Lucie gave us a pre-wedding portrait and we used it to extensively in our signage and stationery and then when guests realised they would get a piece of the action too to take home they were chuffed to bits. Lucie went above and beyond to accommodate overrunning and she was just the best from start to finish.

Just book her!

From start to finish, Lucie was great to work with and she was such an excellent addition to our wedding. We loved the unique portrait booth, and Lucie engaged with our guests to give them a real memorable experience. Everyone loved the fun portraits she produced, and I know a few of them are being framed as we speak!

Thank you again Lucie!

Absolute must-have!

Lucie's portrait booth is the best! When we started planning our wedding, Lucie's booth very quickly became a must-have for us, and we're so glad she was available as it was the perfect addition to our day. Our guests loved it, and everyone was so complimentary about Lucie and the portraits. It was nice to have something a little different to your usual photobooth, and everyone got to go home with a great souvenir of the day. Lucie was wonderful to deal with from start to finish - couldn't recommend her more!

Unique and exactly what we needed

Lucie is a dream to work with! Her booth was an attraction in itself and she was in demand from everyone be it the flower girls to grandparents!

Wedding in Kent

We hired Lucie for our wedding in Kent, and were extremely pleased with the whole process. Lucie chatted to us on the phone about the sort of thing we wanted, the venue, and us as a couple - very nice to have such a personal experience during the booking process. Our guests really loved the portraits, and it was really fun sharing these with each other. There was often a queue for the booth so definitely in demand! Thanks again Lucie, you added something unique to our special day.

Fun and unique portraits!

Lucie's portrait booth at our wedding was a huge hit! She was so enthusiastic and engaging. Our guests loved having their Rubbish portraits done and comparing them with other guests. We thought it was so much better than a photo booth and a unique talking point for our wedding! Definitely have Rubbish Portraits at your event!

Rubbish Portraits

Lucie’s booth was so much fun. It was a bit different to your usual photo booth and much quicker than a regular portrait artist. Our guests loved having their portraits done and we now have a picture from our wedding day to keep forever!
