A GIFT TO KEEP THEM SMILING
Looking for a fun but alternative way to entertain your guests? Why not delight them with illustrated, personalised portraits. Creating super fun (and cute!) 10 minute live illustrations, Hello Sunshine offers fun-filled, interactive entertainment for all kinds of celebrations including weddings and birthdays, festivals and corporate events. Hire me (Jo) to keep your guests smiling and provide them with a perfect gift to take away.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Choose from two booking options to fit around your day or chat to me so we can create your own personal portrait package. Each package will include the following:
A5 Sunshine portrait (head and shoulders) for as many guests as possible within the set time frame
Materials & packaging for each original artwork
30 mins additional time for set up/down at the venue
A5 portrait of the Bride & Groom ahead of the day
Travel within half an hour of Cambridge City Centre
Optional pop up portrait stand for me to sit and paint your guests from
PORTRAIT PACKAGE ONE
2 hours drawing time.
Perfect for the time between a ceremony and wedding breakfast starting. Also popular for the post-meal and pre-first dance period.
PORTRAIT PACKAGE TWO
4 hours drawing time.
A longer period of time to cover a larger number of guests throughout your afternoon/day. Ideal for post ceremony, wedding breakfast and early evening.
Please get in touch to let me know what kind of event you’re planning so I can help pull together the perfect Portrait Package for you

WHAT IS A LIVE SUNSHINE PORTRAIT?
Guests can take it in turn to sit and have a quick watercolour portrait, individually or in a group, as part of your special day. The experience not only provides the perfect alternative entertainment but also unique wedding favours. WIN-WIN!
HOW LONG DOES EACH SUNSHINE PORTRAIT TAKE?
On average an individual portrait takes 5-10 minutes (approx 10-12 portraits per hour) Please bear in mind that couple's and group portraits will take longer.
WHERE IS HELLO SUNSHINE BASED?
Sunny Cambridge but I am willing to travel anywhere in the world to draw on your special day. Additional travel costs will apply so please get in touch for accurate quotes.
how much space do you need?
As long as I have space for a small table and chair as well as a few extra chairs or bench for guests to sit on, I can set up anywhere! I can fit in and around your venue as you need; I’ve painted in bar areas, drawing rooms, conservatories and even outside on sunny days.
Can you bring your own table and chairs?
Sure thing! Depending on your venue size and space allocated, I can bring along a chair, small table or pop up stand with up to 4 stools for guests.
HOW LONG CAN JO DRAW + PAINT FOR?
Bookings don’t usually last longer than 4 hours but you are welcome to book up to 6 hours (including a meal break). As much as I'd love to paint for longer, my hands and eyes can’t handle much more than 6 hours of painting.
