Sketching a wedding party in Claridges penthouse suite and in the ballroom for the evening reception

The morning started with Jacqueline sketching the bridal party including bridesmaids, her parents and the bride herself in the wonderful penthouse suite of Claridges Hotel in London. It was lovely to get caught up in the excitement whilst the girls were readying themselves for the glamorous wedding in Kensington. I started sketching at 11am and worked all day whilst the happy couple were getting married. Greeting them on their return downstairs in Claridges beautiful ballroom where I continued until 11pm illustrating guests during the cocktail reception and continuing whilst they dined. It was an exhausting day as I normally only work in 3-4 hour stints but lovely to be part of such a happy occasion!
