Caricature theme - Chinese traditional wedding

Client's brief:-
"Hi Jit,
I would like to order a Theme Caricature. I have no preference for
either marker or digital. Perhaps you will be able to provide me with
ideas after looking at the theme I have set out below.
Event: Friend's Wedding
Theme: Shanghai Tang - 1940's era
Purpose: to be displayed outside the hotel ballroom - at the reception area
Ideas: 1. Backgroud: Outside the house
2. Attire: Chinese Traditional Costume
3. Action: Dancing/Groom carrying bride 'walking' towards the house
1. Background - Outside the house
The reason I want to have the house as the background is because I
want to show the Groom's family's 堂号。堂号 that is ancestral name or
title, is mainly used for different surname , clan or family. Check
out - If cant read
chinese, you can translate it into English. 堂号 is normally engraved on
a wooden plaque to be placed on the entrance of the house. See the
picture on the wiki website. The Groom's family's 堂号 is 东鲁。So the
words to be displayed is 东鲁.
2. Attire - chinese traditional costume
Their wedding theme is Shanghai Tang. Not sure if 1940s era has the
1940's wedding costume. Tried to search online but dont seem to be
able to find it. So guess to 'fit' the background above, chinese
traditional costume can do.
3. Action - Dancing/Groom carrying bride 'walking' towards the house
Since i want it to be outside the house, guess these are the 2 actions
that I can think of. Maybe you can let me know if you have other
I have a question - is A3 size too small to be displayed outside the
ballroom? If it looks nicer if its bigger, then let's go for a bigger

A mixture of traditional medium (pen, brush and colour markers) and digital medium used here.

Client's feedback:-
"my friends and their families, especially the hubby-to-be, likes the pic. They are
impressed with the artwork as this is the first time they actually see
themselves as a cartoon! hahaha... (am glad i chose the right artist,
