Whatever you want your fairytale castle wedding to look like, there is something for your to find in Fife.

You can make it even more unique by commissioning a live wedding painter to capture your favourite moment on canvas.

Having a live wedding artist at your wedding also holds its roots in tradition. Before the rise of wedding photography, it was practice to commission an artist to record your day on canvas. 

Today, a wedding painting can provide something extra.

A live wedding painter will attend your wedding and paint live in real time whilst your guests watch the painting unfold.

You will be left with a memory to keep forever to remember the atmosphere of that moment in the day.
