When the groom's family beach house was like it was made to host his wedding one day ... cheers to Casey + Jordan and their gorgeous wedding overlooking the water at Sunset Beach. Ben loved capturing the incredible coastal landscape in their live painting. And of course, we love the extra layer of meaning that their special day took place on family property! Talk about an incredible backyard wedding!

Live Wedding Painting | Cheshire, England

Chloe + Stuart
Private Residence
Over Peover, Cheshire, England

We have just returned back to the States after celebrating our first international wedding in the English countryside of Cheshire in a small town called Over Peover.  It has been our dream from the very beginning to see Ben's paintings commissioned internationally.  Needless to say, as our first international wedding painting, Chloe and Stuart's wedding day will forever be a very special one to us!  Chloe and Stuart discovered Ben's work in a magazine and decided a live painting would be the perfect fit for her French-inspired wedding reception.  The wedding was held at St. Oswold's Church nearby with a reception that followed on her family's farm.  Chloe decided that the driveway, lined with gorgeous trees, would be the most special backdrop to capture for the painting.  Ben found the trees made for a lovely composition, perfectly highlighting Chloe and Stuart in the foreground.  The live painting was a total hit for the wedding guests at the reception.  What an absolute joy to travel to the UK to capture their wedding day!  We hope their live wedding painting will bring a lifetime of joy to their family and friends!
