VOW ART BESPOKEN
Nikki has been decorating personalised wedding vows for over 20 years. From a century old Jewish tradition, Nikki scribes and paints the ketubah (the legal marriage contract). Based on this ceremonial artwork, Nikki creates contemporary contracts with readings encapsulating the union of her clients, which can be recited, displayed and even signed at the wedding ceremony. Adding that personal touch, Nikki works with couples to create a suitable border design that complements the sentiments expressed. If the hand crafter artwork is not in your budget range, there is also the option of selecting a border design and providing the appropriate and personalised text to be inserted. These make forunique and meaningful anniversary or wedding gifts, and become an heirloom to hand down to future generations.
Nikki has worked with clients all over the globe – the first point of connection is an email or a phone call…from that point it could be a face to face meeting in Denmark WA or mostly a skype/facetime introduction is arranged…the creative development flows from there…prices range from $200 (giclee print) to $2000 (highly embellished hand painted and scribed)…depending on your budget Nikki is able to create a special bespoke artwork for everyone!
“Thank you for the magnificent work on the Marriage Certificate for Jarrad and Mon. The meticulous work, especially with the Thai lettering, was appreciated. It was the perfect wedding present for them – something to be admired as their love grows. ” Lorel Mayberry
