AS A SILHOUETTIST it’s an odd feeling to have a son working as a wedding photographer. Odd, because silhouettes and photography have a close and fascinating historic relationship (more on this below).
Weddings and silhouettes go well together. Here is inspiration for weddings to come as well as stories about wedding past. These also appear on the weddings carousel.
MY SILHOUETTE CARDS can include your names and even your silhouettes on the front. This is a great way to ensure your guests will remember your wedding every time they see their silhouettes on the wall.
WHEN WORKING as a wedding artist I aim to provide a deluxe, boutique service. There are many ways to present silhouettes at events, but I recommend this wedding package which includes all the extras I feel work best at weddings and which people most often ask for.
CUTTING a full-length silhouette of a bride, live on her wedding day, is always a heart-stopping moment. There’s the bride, surrounded by her closest family and friends on her big day. What could possibly go wrong?
DURING 2015 I noticed a lot of couples adding a wedding cake silhouette to their cakes. This is a great way to bring the theme of silhouette into the wedding. Some of the cakes are really creative.
WORKING AS A SILHOUETTIST at events, I do get some odd requests. Such an occasion happened a few weeks ago, while I was cutting caricature silhouettes at a student ball. The event took place at the Radisson Edwardian Hotel near Heathrow in July 2010.
