Caricature theme - traditional Japanese wedding

Client's brief:-
"Hi Jit,

Great work posted on your site. We are really looking forward to getting our wedding's welcome board sketch done by you.

My wife and I really like the picture of a live sketching piece you did which I have attached in the email. We really like how soft and kind the art piece looks and would like to know is that a caricature or portrait and was it done by markers, ink, or...?....

The requirements will be:

- Our faces as attached in the close up picture minus my pimple pls hahah

- Full body with the traditional japanese wedding kimono's (Stated as groom's and bride's kimono design) as attached in the picture. I have included our full body picture stated as Full body reference for your reference but pls note that, that attire is not the wedding kimono design.

As for the background:

- We would like to be drawn standing on the squarish platform which is over calm water with the extended walkway that leads to the left as highlighted on the bottom of the attached "TOGO garden" picture to connect to the rear part of the drawing of the shrine as seen on the attached "Shrine" picture.

- We would also like the bigger highlighted sakura blossom (as seen in "TOGO garden" picture) to be drawn above our heads with these words on it which has to be big enough to be read for our wedding reception board. The words are, " Welcome to our Wedding.
Jay & Yuko.
8th April 2010."

- Lastly, as our board as flowers on the top left and bottom right, please arrange for us to be drawn on the right side with the shrine on the left as we think that should give the best orientation. But please give us your feedback and suggestions as you are the professional.....

Thanks for the input! and we are totally ok with doing it in portrait format, any further professional advice is totally welcomed.

Will we have to forgo the sakura drawing even in portrait format or will there be enough space? The words can be written over the sakura if there isn't enough space or do you have any alternative suggestions as to how we can add in the sakura and words?

I have attached scanned images for the TOGO garden however they are in 2 pieces, hope that's ok. And I could only get a picture of the shrine in the day without the red carpet, hope you could draw the shrine in the day with the red carpet.

Lastly, it seems like the picture frame of 400mm X 300mm includes the border of the frame. Can the drawings be done in such a way that it doesn't get blocked by the flowers on the edges as well please.

Thanks a million for listening to our endless requests."

Traditional Japanese wedding  couple caricatures
The kimonos were the most time-consuming, especially the bride's one.
You can tell from the textile pattern.

However, the feedback was rewarding:-
"Oh, Very nice!... beautiful! It's going to be a very good memory for us!"
