Waterford-based designer Julie Nolan started creating illustrations after her own wedding in 2016.

Speaking to Beat, Julie provided a little background to her business.

“You’d be shocked how much extra time you have when you’re no longer planning a wedding!

I thought I’d post my illustrations on Instagram & Facebook pages and was delighted when they quickly got a great response. It was then that I decided to do illustrations of Irish fashion bloggers for a bit of fun and was elated when they reposted them and mentioned me. I suddenly had people messaging me asking for pricing and orders. The response was unbelievable!

Shortly thereafter, the requests kept rolling in. I was getting orders for birthdays, hen parties, engagements, baby showers, christenings, wedding invitations & business logos! I even collaborated with several famous Irish brands to create marketing content for their brands (Dr Hauschka Skincare and Lilywho Jewellery).  I was stunned by the amazing response.

Last year I began doing my illustrations live at wedding receptions and fell in love with the process so I’ve never looked back! It takes me about 10-15 mins to create an illustration of two people. I do it on the spot and the wedding guests love it. Such a unique way to provide some entertainment as well as a wedding favour in one go!”
