what to expect



It was just wonderful to see  beautiful special memories committed to paper and so stunningly interpreted in my wedding paintings. We really feel like you captured the feeling of the day, the tones and the dreamy quality. We adore art and to have pieces that actually feature one of our most important days is just amazing.  So many visitors have admired our paintings and I think because in the UK it is more unusual to have a wedding painter people have reacted with such surprised joy!

Hire Courtney and go big! The more space for beautiful brushstrokes the better.

DO IT! Absolutely no regrets from us. We love our piece so much and if I could do it all over again I would 100 times over!



My favorite part was having a one of a kind, timeless piece to have forever. It captured so many special memories. Not only the moment captured by the painting, but also all the reactions and other details of the day.

You really made the experience so special. The phone calls leading up to the wedding and the emails were such a special touch. I also received so many comments about how sweet you were at the wedding and what a great touch it was. 

" 10/10 recommend live wedding painting and 10000/10 recommend Courtney! The best decision I made! Still obsessing over it! Absolutely beautiful and loving that I get to admire it right away! It’s my most prized piece of art I’ve ever owned and probably will ever own!”
