But we didn’t need them to. Our only race was against time.
When Tolu, our Co-founder and project manager , told Dr Dunnie that we could do a live painting of her and her fiancé at her wedding reception, she was immediately smitten by the romantic nature of it all. After convincing her hubby, she gave us the go-ahead to start preparing.
Fast forward several weeks after, to the wedding reception and the couple’s first dance. We started painting. Time really did seem to fly, as we raced to beat our best time. Initially, people weren’t sure about what we were doing, but as the minutes went by and as the forms started taking shape, we heard gasps from the crowd. We were done in 13 minutes.
And the bride’s reaction was priceless.
