Bespoke House/Wedding venue/Christening venue Illustration


Commission a bespoke illustration of your home or wedding venue by the award-winning illustrator, Katie Cardew!

From a simple photo, Katie will transform your home or wedding venue into a stunning artwork to treasure. They also make a beautiful and unique gift.

Please read the below super carefully before ordering!

SIZE:  The illustration will be 8″x8″. Choose between unframed or beautifully framed in a simple 12″ x 12″ white wooden frame. If you would like a larger illustration or to include people/pets, please see the Premium Illustration product.

TURNAROUND TIME: The finished illustration will be completed within 5 weeks of your order.

PHOTOGRAPH GUIDELINES: In order to complete your illustration we need a photo of your house; this should be uploaded as part of your order and must be a high resolution/full size jpeg. Some guidelines for your house photo:

  • We need a clear photo of your house. Preferably face on, the photo needs to include all elements of the house, from the tops of the chimney down to any foliage/pots at the base of the buidling .Please see the final image in the gallery as a guideline.
  • Ipad/iPhone photos are absolutely fine so long as taken in good light. Please no filters and just make sure the sun isn’t directly behind the house as this can affect the colours.
  • Please, no screen grabs from social media, photos with cars obstructing the house or photos from the internet or similar as they are usually poor resolution.
  • If the house or building is semi-detached or on a terrace, please add in the notes section where the boundaries are (i.e. up to the second chimney on the left).
  • If you would like Katie to include a few flowers (for example if the photo is taken in winter) please pop the species, colour and rough position of the flowers in the ‘notes’ section.
  • If your home is particularly long, it might be a good idea to take the photo at an angle or choose a section of it.

 STYLE: See the house photo in the gallery for an example of the type of image Katie needs to work from. The finished illustration will be Katie’s interpretation of your building, and not a ‘like for like’ copy of the photograph.
