Wedding Caricature Artist

Looking for something completely different and unique for your wedding? Why not hire a caricature artist to charm your wedding guests with’ on the spot’ caricature cartoons. Weddings are by far my favourite celebrations to cartoon at as it fits in really well throughout the day. It is a natural ‘Ice Breaker and raises hoots of laughter, particularly during any wedding lulls. 

I can cater for you throughout your special day, and you can hire me for to entertain during the day, or alternatively for your wedding reception. Of course, if you like I can be there for the whole event!

Hiring a caricature artist for your wedding day

There is minimal set up time so therefore I can hit the ground running as soon as I arrive. As a walkabout caricaturist I can mix and mingle at the drinks reception, which is a good time to draw those not involved in the immediate family photos and it has the desired effect of getting everyone chatting.

I can also carry on drawing over the mealtime which is a perfect time to capture guests on the top table. I’d either stand to the side or take a chair and move my way along as I drawn each person.

For the evening reception I sometimes set up a few chairs, and anchor myself to an area, building up a crowd. Alternatively, I  table hop around and continue with walkabout cartoons. I am very versatile and will know what will work best on the day.

I draw between 12-15 guests an hour on A3 

I tend to draw a mixture of head and shoulders and my standard silly bodies and while your guests have a keepsake and memento of the occasion it doesn’t stop there.

The process is great entertainment for onlookers to watch me draw, added by watching the anticipation and puzzlement of the person being drawn, which creates a great buzz and an exciting atmosphere.

It is always great to capture a caricature of the happy wedding couple as a momento of their special day.

 

To help you decide when is best in the day to book I have highlighted three sessions that I can recommend. Please read on to find out more.

1 – After the Wedding Ceremony

This is straight after the ceremony and into the pre drinks. It’s a good time for me to mingle and draw whilst photos are being taken and also during the drinks reception. This can then proceed into and during the meal time with walkabout caricatures. I ought to add that no guests have to hold a define pose and can blissfully continue eating and chatting. I will do a few caricatures on each table to spread the entertainment around the room. This period is an excellent time for me to capture the wedding couple, and other
important wedding party member, i.e., the bridesmaids, ushers and parents. I either stand at the side or take a chair and make my way drawing along the top table. If speeches are at the end of the meal then that is often a good natural ending. If speeches are before the meal then I can press the pause button or very often I’ll continue drawing at a distant and hand the caricature to those guests after the speeches have finished.

2 – The Evening Wedding Reception

The evening session is more straightforward, as guests start to let their hair down and waistcoats become unbuttoned. I’ll be ready to start after the speeches. Sometimes this can be whilst the venue is being prepared for the evening celebrations and additional guests start to arrive. I can either table hop around the tables that guests are sitting around and/or continue walking
about and drawing or setting up in one place and often a bit of all three. I can stay to however late you want me. Within 3 hours I’ll able to do over 40 caricatures, so there will be ample opportunity for those who want to be drawn. It is a great wedding entertainment and one your guests won’t forget, particularly as they will be taking home their own caricature from the day.

3 – The Wedding Breakfast

The final option is to hire me to entertain at your wedding breakfast. At this point, most of your guests will be feeling rather sorry for themselves after an evening of indulgence!

 

What better way to lift their spirits than a hand sketched caricature showing them at their worst! Some people really love this as an option to close their special day.
