Here's exactly why you'll love live wedding painting

September 17, 2021

The day you get married is one of the most special days of your life. It’s going to be an incredibly memorable experience for both you and your significant other, and it’s worth it to have something commemorative to keep with you and cherish forever. Live collaborative wedding painting gets you more than just that. It gets you something that you, the love of your life, and your entire gathering of friends and family can hold on to as a lasting symbol of your love and connection with one another.

As someone who specializes in this exact kind of art, I’ve been able to help a number of people both commemorate these connections and create some fun new memories along the way. Weddings are just one type of event I do this for, in addition to company team-building events and others. Live wedding painting adds a special touch that photographs can’t quite capture, and that sense is even greater when everyone is participating and making their own mark on the artwork.

Read on for some of the reasons other people I’ve worked with have learned to love live wedding painting, and why you might, too.

Accessible, unique entertainment

Most weddings involve some kind of entertainment for the couple and the guests, as they should. It’s a special day that should be celebrated. Most of the time, this takes the form of music and dancing, and this is certainly a fun thing to do that’s great for bringing people together and getting them to loosen up, but it isn’t necessarily something that works for everyone. Live wedding painting is very accessible to people of any personality or ability who still want to be a part of that moment.

On top of that, lots of different kinds of events and venues have music and dancing. Many people have never, and may never, touch a paintbrush or create something on a canvas. Those that do probably only do so alone, with no one else adding to the art they create. The live painting I offer gives everyone at your wedding a chance to participate in creating an incredibly unique piece of artwork in a way that most people, artists or not, never have.

Making memories together

Many couples have a wedding photographer present, and just about anyone planning this kind of event makes sure they have some way to commemorate the day and capture the moment for them to look back on fondly in their later years. There are other kinds of live painting services for this purpose, too. Photos and simpler portrait paintings, though, focus much more on simply capturing the reality of the moment. The collaborative painting style I focus on captures more of the feeling and energy of the couple themselves together with one another.

Of course, this effect doesn’t just stop with the couple. Everyone there, from friends to family to anyone else present, is also a valued part of that moment. Allowing them to participate in the process of creating a commemorative piece of art allows their presence, and the connection between them and the married couple, to be felt whenever someone looks at that piece of art in the future.

A valued heirloom

As already mentioned, what you get out of collaborative wedding painting is a unique piece of art that you can look back on later in life to return to the feelings you felt that day. That extends beyond just you and the people that were there, though. Your children and future generations of your family will have that painting, too, and knowing that you were part of creating it, along with everyone else there, will help them know and remember you a little bit better.
