My name is Marcela and I'm a live wedding painter based in Dublin. 

What's a Live Wedding Painting?

A live wedding painting is a unique, one-of-a-kind experience where I will attend your wedding and paint a moment from your special day while your guests get to watch it come together. Whether it’s your first kiss, your first dance or a candid giggle with your new husband or wife, I will beautifully capture this moment in a painting throughout the day. So while it’s entertainment for your guests throughout your day, you get to keep a beautiful painting at the end of it all. (It also makes a great gift from family members or friends)

How does it work?

A few weeks before the wedding we will hop on a video call to discuss the vision of your painting or if you would like me to take creative control. During this call we will talk about the scene you would like painted, poses and any other details e.g. if you would like a pet in the painting (who might just steal the show).

On the wedding day I will arrive an hour or 2 before your guests so that the painting is underway when everyone arrives. During the scene we chose on the call, I will grab some photos and videos to use as reference throughout the day. I will try to take as little time out of your day as possible so I will try to jump in with the photographer for this step.

I will then spend the day and evening painting and chatting to guests about her process as they please. This is a big part of the fun! 

At the end of the night the painting will be mostly complete, that’s when I will come find you to show you your painting before I leave (photographers & videographers can capture this moment too if they're still around)

I will then take the painting back to the studio for touch ups, finer details, varnishing and framing before sending it to you to hang in your forever home.

If you’re up for adding a dash of creativity and a statement of style to your wedding, I’m your gal!

Book book book Marcela!!! That is all I can say. We booked Marcela last minute and was over the moon she had our wedding date available. I came across Marcela's work on instagram the minute I seen her work I was blown away I needed to have her paint us on our special day so when we got the email to say she was available I was soo thrilled and so excited as I knew it would make an amazing experience for our day. Marcela arranged a call with me to discuss what I had in mind and me being very indecisive she was an angel and actually had loads of options for me to choose from as she done her homework on our venue and gave me different options that would work best. I had all my trust in Marcela after our chat. Absolutely every guest commented on the painting throughout the day …they were amazed by her work! Our painting is now in the final touch ups and I cannot wait to have it in our home. Thanks Marcela❤️

She was a fantastic addition to our wedding day and really wowed our guests. From the start of the process Marcela was a pleasure to deal with and put me at ease throughout the whole process. Highly recommend her as a live wedding painter

I can't recommend Marcela enough. She was so kind and warm and a stress free addition to our day. She was wonderful with our guests, she is incredibly talented and everyone was blown away with the painting. She managed to capture my smile so perfectly and she even added my dog who wasn't at our wedding! She took a little change I wanted to make on board. It can be hard to say you'd like something slightly different but Marcela was sooo patient in all our conversations it was amazing. Everyone I've shown the painting to since has been blown away by how well she captured us. Highly recommend!

Book this artist now! Marcela is about to get flooded with requests and will have a full calendar before you know it. We first met Marcela at the RDS bridal show, after my then Fiancé hunted her stand down from some wedding TikToks. On seeing her work, I quickly became equally infatuated with the concept of live wedding painting. It was about 2 months to the big day for us and we hadn't budgeted for it so I told my fiancé we couldn't do it. I made, in secret however, a special push to make this happen, and Marcela worked wonderfully with myself and the venue to keep it a surprise until the day of. The grand reveal is available to see on Marcela's socials, and I couldn't have hoped for a better reaction. (Would recommend this as a present idea for any struggling grooms to be). The entire ensemble of equipment was also moved around the venue to follow the flow of the day, and the guests were hooked on tracking progress, as were we! The work done on the day, and the subsequent touch ups are just phenomenal. Multiple pictures were combined so that all elements were included. The veil for example, was added using a separate picture, with a level of character that you won't get from Photoshop or AI. Marcela was also wonderful with all our guests, who were all enamoured by her work and personality. The final version was even delivered by hand, due to our relative location, but it was such a nice touch. Marcela is one of the nicest people we had the pleasure to work with and you will simply not regret the fantastic live wedding painting service she provides.

Marcela Buckley Art -10/10 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

At a wedding, a bride and groom naturally want everything to be perfect on their big day, however, when you pick to have a live painting completed at your wedding, you won’t know the outcome, this could lead to a lot of unwanted nerves except when it comes to Marcela’s art.. you get what you expect which is nothing short of perfection. Marcela is outstanding at what she does, not only is Marcela’s art outstanding but her natural ability with engaging with a crowd and professionalism is what every bride and groom hopes for when picking a vendor for a service. Myself and my new husband can not express in words our love for our painting, it is PERFECT, it is something a camera could have never captured. Our guests, a couple of weeks on from the wedding are still speaking about Marcela and Marcela’s art and how fantastic having a live painting is to have as a memory to hang on your wall forever. I cannot recommend Marcela enough to any future bride and groom, the process was seamless and Marcela’s communication was excellent. Marcela’s concentration was admirable and her elegance when painting was a visual our guests were mesmerized by. If you are thinking of booking a live painter for your big day or any occasion, look no further than Marcela. Thank you again Marcela !

I was a guest at a wedding where Marcela completed a live painting of the bride and groom. Marcela is such an amazing artist and It was incredible seeing the progression of the painting throughout the day and how relaxed and friendly she was during it. The finished painting was absolutely excellent and such a great memory for the couple to have. I couldn’t recommend Marcela enough to have as a live wedding painter.

I recently hired Marcela as a live wedding artist for my friend's wedding and I have to say it was one of the best decisions I ever made. From the very beginning, Marcela was incredibly easy to deal with and her communication was flawless. She was always prompt in responding to my queries and made the whole process seamless.

On the day of the wedding, Marcela was an absolute delight to work with. She was so friendly and approachable, and her passion for her craft shone through in everything she did. Watching her create a beautiful painting of my friends was truly mesmerising, and it was wonderful to see everyone else enjoying it too.

The best part about gifting Marcela's service was that I got to enjoy it too. It was a truly unique and special present to give, and it was great to be able to point out on the day that that was the gift I had given. Marcela created the most perfect picture of my friends, and it was heartwarming to see their faces light up when they saw it.

The painting itself was flawless, and Marcela took it away at the end of the night and put on the most perfect finishing touches afterwards. Now my friends have it proudly hanging in their house, and it's such a joy to call over and see my wedding gift hanging on the wall.

I couldn't recommend Marcela enough! She is an incredibly talented artist and an absolute pleasure to work with. If you're looking for a unique and unforgettable gift, Marcela's live wedding art is the perfect choice.
