Wedding Caricatures

I am a wedding entertainer.  Invite me to your wedding and I’ll mingle with your guests, drawing quick (4 min) caricatures, creating a buzz, breaking the ice and filling those wedding lulls with laughter. I’m professional, mobile, unobtrusive, stylish, charming and highly entertaining.

Please forget what you’ve seen at Theme Parks, on holiday or on street corners,  I’m a professional WALKABOUT ENTERTAINER, not a busker at an easel.  My aim is to mix, mingle and dazzle your guests, with hilarious results, not sit in a corner with my head down.

I’ve been entertaining at weddings since 1991 and in my experience weddings can differ greatly in format, especially civil partnerships and Indian Weddings, but as a general rule there are usually two wedding lulls to fill on the big day;


First Lull

Immediately after the wedding ceremony, the drinks reception, when guests are enjoying a glass of Pimms and photos are being taken on the lawn. I mingle with the guests, help break the ice by drawing caricatures and keep them entertained while the happy couple are busy with photos. I usually try to draw the ‘A-team’ (immediate family, ushers, bridesmaids etc) before the line-up for the Wedding Breakfast. The button holes and big hats are a usual give away, but a few pointers from the Ushers can help.

The Wedding Breakfast is always busy and needs no other wedding entertainment than the speeches.

Second Lull

Following the meal, waistcoats are unbuttoned and guests are usually ushered into the bar area, as the main venue is transformed for the evening’s festivities. This provides the next wedding lull and that’s where I can step in and keep your guests entertained. I would normally expect to perform for up to 2 hours in the afternoon or 2 – 3 hours in the early evening (30 – 50 caricatures).  Evening bookings do tend to capture more of the ‘B-Team’ and often develop a queue, but the evening buzz is great. All I need to work is adequate lighting, please bare this in mind if looking at an evening booking or a marquee.

My performance should end with the FIRST DANCE, after which point there is enough dancing and entertainment for all but not enough light for me.
