Thank you again for your beautiful artwork
Thank you again for your beautiful artwork you did for our special day! You are an exceptional artist. 😊 We just saw that YouTube video you posted on painting our wedding at Duns Castle! We loved seeing it! Duns castle sent us an email yesterday bringing it to our attention. Is it at all possible for you to send me all of the footage you have? I didn't realize it would be recorded and one of our big regrets was not having recorded our ceremony. 😆 I would be beyond thankful! 😊

Just to say a massive thank you for the painting you did at our wedding – it was really beautiful. Our guests loved watching you paint it (and seeing the final artwork as well of course)! We displayed it at the evening reception and got a number of complimentary comments from our guests. Thank you again, and I will definitely keep you in mind for future events! Best wishes Sameer

Following on from the Nikkah Wedding Ceremony of ******* and ********* that took place on 1st July 2017, I wanted to pass on some feedback for your services provided on the day. Firstly my feedback has to outline what a pleasure and ease you were to work with on the lead up to the wedding. As you know, I am running around a lot on the wedding morning so the fact you were then so great to set up and start painting the outline of your work without having to find me first really made my morning easier. Although you were so discrete (so much so that ******* didn’t notice the surprise until a few minutes after the ceremony!!) the wow factor was certainly achieved as all guests commented on the live painting and talent involved. You’ll be pleased to know the finished article was then displayed at the evening reception for all guests to see as they entered the marquee and I am sure that ******* and ******* shall treasure this for years to come. Thank you for being a part of their memories and I very much hope to work with you again soon!

His painting was wonderful.
Paul painted our first dance. His painting was wonderful. He captured all the drama of the room as well as the emotion of the moment. It is a piece we will treasure forever. Paul struck exactly the right balance between being discrete and providing enthralling entertainment. Our guests loved it.
