the house of love illustration

“Hi I’m Megan Metcalf, and I create beautiful and characterful live illustrations of your wedding or event. Just like a reportage photographer, I discreetly capture people, objects and moments that tell the story of the day. It’s a captivating way to not only entertain your guests, but also for you to have unique original works of art for you to treasure.

I draw around 3-4 illustrations per hour and then add watercolour to the originals in my studio. I also scan them in high resolution and create a digital portfolio for you. It’s totally up to you what you do with the artworks - you always get a framed picture, all the originals (which can be formatted in an album, should you wish...). One couple chose to exhibit the pictures the next day at a post-wedding brunch! Others have used them to create thank you cards, or had large format originals created from their favourite. The options are endless!

I’m based in Margate, Kent, but travel near and a far for celebrations both big and small. I like to get to know my clients’ vision for their day, and can create bespoke packages for all occasions. I love wild ideas and seemingly impossible creative challenges.

If you’d like to find out more about how I can add that extra creativity to your event, please get in touch for a no obligation consultation. I’m excited to create a House of Love Illustration experience that works perfectly for you.

Clients include: ACE Hotel Shoreditch, Somerley House, Knot & Pop, Perfectly Planned for You, Dreamland, Turner Contemporary.”
