The ceremony and reception were at "Gledswood Homestead" in Camden. Artwork tells their love story, from where they met at School, where they got engaged in Canada, where they work and all of the special touches of their wedding day on canvas, including their wedding cars, ceremony and reception. Guests enjoyed adding to the canvas throughout the reception, after we started the artwork during predinner drinks.
It started with a surprise helicopter flight to Spicers Hidden Vale where Alex proposed. Fast forward to their wedding day at the Holy Spirit New Farm, followed by a reception at the fabulous "The Lussh" in Brisbane. The live band had all of the guests enjoying a great night on the dance floor. All of the guests got into the spirit of adding a brushstroke, with special additions including the Groom's fishing tinnie, some bougainvillea from North Qld and some abseiling off the Kangaroo Point Cliffs.
Eva Wheatley's family started this organisation to help families with children diagnosed with rare cancers. On the day Eva passed away aged 6, all the Jacaranda flowers fell of the trees.

You can see more about the brilliant work and the "Superdolls" they provide for children here. https://www.braverstrongersmarter.org.au

Donna will design an artwork with your family, or corporate environment in mind. This Artwork was created for Colin's 70th Birthday. "I delivered it in time for the big reveal at his Birthday Lunch as a surprise. He said it was the best Birthday present he has ever got. Although this isn't the full size of the artwork shown, I have painted all of his family in enjoying the sunrise out the front of their house in Wynnum. I used a photo provided by his wife from her morning walks, and then used various photos supplied of other family members. Felt like I knew them all in the end!" Donna Gibb
