I am so delighted to be able to finally tell you all about this wondrous lady!

I discovered Charlotte Thomson's site some months ago now – from a link in Facebook, I think, and I immediately loved what I saw.  

Charlotte Thomson is a Nottingham based artist & illustrator, well known for creating retro and vintage inspired art and design. She specialises in creating fun and evocative images, especially portraiture.  Charlotte works heavily within the UK burlesque & entertainment scene but also provides bridal portraits.  Charlotte's work is highly influenced by the fashions and imagery of eras such as the 1940s & 1950s & the ‘Belle Epoch’.

You  might recognise some of Charlotte's artwork on this very Wedding Blog – all the imagery was created by Charlotte – and we absolutely love it! :)  I can say too that Charlotte was a joy to work with – she caught on quickly to my ideas and was very swiftly able to produce some initial concepts…
