Beautiful illustrations created during your wedding


I sketch at your event

I finish and bind
the sketches

and deliver them to you



You can have your sketches hand bound into a beautiful, personalised album.

I developed this album especially for this purpose, it’s easy to flip through it and your sketches are well protected, easy way of showing them to your friends and family! You won’t get empty pages, like you would with ready made albums and you can choose which sketches you want to go in there.

Hand bound on a professional level, your illustrated album is made to last.

You always have the option to frame and hang some of your sketches in your home or gift them to your guests. Additionally, you will receive a high-resolution digital copy of all your sketches. You can print, share on social media, or send them to your friends and family.

Want to wow your guests? I offer live portrait sessions, drawing portraits of individuals, couples, or small groups. These sketches add a special touch to your wedding or other event and give your guests something to take home to remind them of your special day. If you chose the digital version they can be conveniently delivered to your guests’ mobile devices or email inbox when they are finished. Each portrait is crafted right before their eyes.

I can also offer guest portraits in a style inspired by Quentin Blake, find out more here.



I can create an oil painting from your wedding photo or video.
My way of painting is combining the traditional with contemporary, to really bring the painting to life. I usually work in a loose and spontaneous style, yet keeping some areas well defined – a winning combination that doesn’t just replicate the photo you already have.


Sketches are meant to complement your wedding photos, as a different way of capturing the day. Sketches capture the essence, the feel, energy and atmosphere of what is happening, rather than just recording a particular split second. They are meant to be fun!

My sketches are done using pen and watercolour and happen very quickly. They are not photographic portraits, I aim to capture memorable moments and stories in a fun and interesting way, with lively outlines and a splash of colour. Some of the sketches are done live during the event and some added later. I only use quality watercolour paper that will last and colours that won’t fade.

Working with Jana was incredible from start to finish. Her immense talent for sketching has given us such unique memories of our wedding that we will treasure forever. Jana took the time to speak with us before our wedding to discuss our requirements and wants and took all the information on board when sketching on the day. The display of sketches was loved by our guests and Jana took the time to speak to our guests about her work which was a lovely addition to the day. She has then gone above and beyond after the wedding to finish the sketches and create the most beautiful sketchbook, even down to the detail of letting us choose the fabric it was wrapped in to match our wedding colour scheme. We couldn’t say enough good things about Jana and her work and the stunning sketches we now get to keep. Would 100% recommend her to anyone considering a sketch Artist for their day!

I would suggest to anyone who wants to find a unique, creative and beautiful wedding gift to look no further than to commission Jana Forsyth to make a personalised wedding sketch album of the special occasion. Jana attended my son’s wedding garden party reception and produced the most wonderful album of sketches recording the day. My son and new daughter in law were thrilled to bits with the result because it was so unusual and it captured the feel and movement of the day in a way which photographs don’t. This album is going to become a very treasured possession.
