Live Wedding Painting

What is live wedding painting?

A live painted wedding painting creates a picture that reflects the mood and energy of a wedding and refrains to show everything in detail. Unlike photography, many individual moments can be united in one image. So I can include people or moments according to my customers requirements. I paint directly on-site, observe the situations and paint them. The wedding guests and the wedding couple can watch how this special day will be captured on canvas by a painter. A painting that recalls your memory, everytime you look at it. My name is Elisabeth Gecius and I am a painter from Berlin. I love capturing moments in everyday life and painting them in my own personal way. In doing so, I combine abstract elements with realism. I paint live at weddings (ceremony or at the party) or on basis of photo references.


How does live wedding painting work?

I drive to the wedding location about two hours before the guests arrive, so I can choose the right position to paint from. Then I start to paint the location. When the guests arrive, I start to incorporate them into the picture. I also take pictures to my studio so that I can finish the picture based on the photo references.


Which medium do I paint with?

I paint with with high-quality, lightfast acrylic paints on canvas or paper.


How long does it take to finish painting a picture?

I paint at the wedding and finish the painting in my studio. The bridal couple receives the picture at the latest two weeks after the wedding.
