Today I am thrilled to spotlight on Wedding Picture who create personalised wedding portrait illustrations as commissions for unique wedding or special occasion gifts.
I hand over to Natalie Orchard who tells us all about her blossoming Business…
Who are you, and what do you do?
“My name is Natalie and I’m a London born illustrator.”
“I’ve been an illustrator since the first day I picked up my first set of crayons. I draw beautiful bespoke wedding illustration portraits of couples on their wedding day.”
When and why did you start your Company?
“I started one year ago and by accident.”
“It all started when it was my mum and stepfathers first year anniversary and I wanted to give something special that they could keep forever.”
“I thought a pencil drawing of their favourite wedding photo!”
“They loved it so much I thought who wouldn’t want this as a gift?! And that’s where I got the idea for Wedding Picture.”
What inspires you?
“Art. I love anything hand made, whether it’s pottery, furniture, and fashion.”
“I have alot of time for people who can create intricate items. And are full of creativity.”
Do trends influence your work?
“I can’t say it does.”
“My work is about personal expression and capturing exactly what I see.”
“How the hair falls in a certain way, the look in the eyes, the bite of the lip.”
“They are the elements that is important to me. Without getting those things right Wedding Picture is just another nice drawing.”
What is your greatest achievement?
“My greatest achievement would be my marriage to my newly married husband.”
“We have been together 10 years and we finally tied the knot 10 years from the day we met in my beautiful home country of Mauritius.”
“We make such a great team and I constantly remind myself of how lucky I am that he’s in my life.”
What do you see as the future of your Company?
“It’s not about making loads of money or about being recognizable allover the world, it’s about putting a smile on people’s faces and giving them something they can cherish and maybe hand down through generations as a heirloom.”
“That’s how I see Wedding Picture to be in the future.”
“To close I love doing what I do. There’s nothing more lovely then seeing couples on their wedding day share a beautiful moment together.”
“I’m just so lucky they allow me to experience just a moment of it.”
