Cliveden House hosts a huge wedding where Jacqueline illustrates guests with fellow fashion artist Kathy Wyatt

We had the honour of illustrating guests at a grand wedding at Cliveden, a celebrity hangout in Berkshire hosting royalty and infamous guests such as Christine Keeler and Mandy Rice-Davies in the swinging Sixties- whose Profumo scandal brought down the Labour government!

It was a glittering pool side evening reception, with guests, casually attired and relaxed eating and chatting whilst Kathy Wyatt and I sketched on iPads and in ink. The guests were given a choice whether to have digital illustrations emailed to them or hand drawn to take away. We were both shattered at the end of the night having heads down and drawing like crazy for 3 solid hours!

50th Birthday party

I had great fun with the guests at a party recently, particularly as some were dressed as 1980’s pop stars like Debbie Harry, Chrissie Hind & Siouxsie Sioux who were all really good to draw!

I had donated my time as ‘event illustartor’ to our local primary school, raising money at an auction, a local lady won the bid who happens to work in fashion, which made for a very colourful guest list and friends flown in from as far afield as Sydney, Australia. It was a really lovely evening and I think the drawings reflect my relaxed state!
