In my ABC Of Weddings: G For Guestbook entry I mentioned how you could get guests to contribute to a canvas as part of a collaborative art work. So I was excited to see the idea come to life on One Love Photo.

Shawn and Owen decided to do this at their wedding and had sunflowers with a grid sketched onto the canvas, the guests were invited by Kathleen (their appointed ‘art director’) to paint a square. After the wedding, she finished it up and a beautiful artwork was created.

Here’s a progress shot of a guest painting under Kathleen’s watchful eye when the painting was out during cocktail hour.


Here are Shawn and Owen with their completed work (which they love!)


I love this idea and it’s brilliant to see it in action. Check out the One Love Photo blog for more photos and another painted guest book creation!
