Preserving your precious wedding moments through the art of graphite sketching – creating loving memories to behold in every pencil mark.

Weddings in Graphite is an innovative service that creatively documents a bride and groom’s special day through elegant graphite sketches. Like every wedding day, each drawing is unique and offers a creative way of celebrating the unique moments of your day that is quite different to traditional wedding photography.


Every Wedding in Graphite album tells the story of your wedding from beginning to end, capturing guest interactions, sentimental moments and decorative details that create a truly personal experience of remembering a day full of love, joy and emotion for many years to come.

A Wedding in Graphite album is a beautiful gift to newlyweds who wish to preserve their memories to enjoy soon after their wedding day, and also make for special gifts of reminiscence for couples who are celebrating wedding anniversaries.
