Wedding Illustrations


Commission an illustration of your home and family – a beautiful keepsake for years to come!
Katie used to be booked up months and months in advance which just didn’t work with a growing business and young family! She now releases the commission slots every couple of months. Pretty please do not ask her to slot your commission in, this is the best way for everyone as it means Katie can control her workload and you get your commission much faster!


Step 1 Download the size and price list using the button on the right.
Step 2 Make sure that you can provide the correct photos Katie requires. She will need clear, high resolution photos showing the entire house/family/pets. Screen grabs are too blurry – they need to be actual photos. iPhone photos are fine so long as they are taken in good light. For family photos, Katie will need a group photo with the family wearing the clothing they would like to be drawn in.
Step 3 Sign up to the Katie Cardew commission newsletter. The date and time of the commission slot release will be published via the newsletter.
Step 4 Katie released a set number of commission slots every couple of months or so. Once you get the email with the date and time, please do set your alarms as the commissions are very popular and get booked very quickly. There will be a link on the email to purchase a commission slot. This link will not work until the time of the release, so please keep the email safe to use once the time comes!
Step 5 When the slots become live, simply follow the link or go onto the website – shop – bespoke commissions. Choose which month you would like the commission completed by and pop the commission slot into your basket and checkout. Please don’t leave it in there and have a browse – the slot isn’t yours until you have checked out!
Step 6 Once you have your slot, you will receive an email with the booking forms for each of the types of commission (house and family, family or wedding). Simply print, fill in and either scan or photograph and email back to Katie along with your photographs. Katie will then produce your lovely illustration within the month you have chosen!

Please note that if suitable photos cannot be obtained, Katie unfortunately will not be able to take the commission. Her work is so detailed that she needs good photos to work from! 

The completion date is a guide. Having a young family and a busy business to run occasionally throws a curve ball and commissions can be delayed. She endeavours to complete all work to the date required but it is not 100% guaranteed. 

If your question is not answered by the above or the price/size guide, then please email Katie at
