Wedding Caricaturist

Live caricature fun with an accomplished on the spot caricaturist always goes down a storm at weddings and although I get booked for all sorts of events, weddings are always the most fun!

A quick search for wedding caricaturists will show you there are plenty to choose from; read on and hopefully I can at least persuade you to ask me for a quote! If you decide book me for your BIG DAY you can rest assured that you will enlist an enthusiastic, experienced, easy going professional and a very able exponent of the art (or is it a sport?) – but don’t just take my word for it; – a quick search for Demonpen Caricatures on google will reveal dozens of online reviews from previous customers!

As I usually work "walkabout", I don't need a dedicated space, although I am quite happy to set up with a couple of chairs and an easel if required.

Wedding Reception Caricatures: mixing and mingling after the ceremony

Between the ceremony and the wedding breakfast is often a perfect opportunity for a walkabout caricaturist to engage with your guests, providing some quality entertainment during a break in proceedings. People can gather round and watch as I work and I usually draw a crowd. A bit of banter is always part of the fun during the champagne and canapes. There will be other things going on – a photographer will need to borrow the guests and the bride and groom will be in high demand. I might be working alongside a string quartet or a magician; needing nothing more than a pad and a pocketful of markers I can easily fit in whatever the plan is.

Table hopping caricatures during the wedding breakfast

It can be great fun to have a caricaturist 'table hopping' during a meal , but it is important for the caricaturist not to be too intrusive; Not everyone likes to be drawn while they are eating their main course although some are quite happy with it. At times it is best to hold back and wait to be called over - and of course, it is vital stay out of the way while food is being served. It is worth considering the table layout if you are thinking of having me draw at a sit down meal; ideally there should be enough space to move around easily. Having said that, I pride myself on my experience and flexibility. I will normally aim to spread myself out, and keep moving round, drawing one or two caricatures at each table to make sure as many people as possible have a bit of fun whether actual 'victims' or the audience in general. Although table hopping can present a few challenges, it can also provide a unique opportunity to 'target' selected guests; a visit to the top table is a must and will provide the perfect chance to catch the immediate family and, of course, to capture the bride and groom's caricature!

Party caricatures at the evening bash!

Once the wedding breakfast and speeches are over it is party on! With the end of the formalities and the arrival of the evening guests, it is time for everyone to let their hair down and get boisterous! With fewer interruptions, this is often the most productive time for me. Loud music and poor lighting can be surprisingly conducive and I will usually work non stop through a 2 or 3 hour slot.

Artwork from photos for wedding stationary, signing boards and invitations

As well as taking bookings for live entertainment, I also take commissions for caricatures from photographs. I am committed to giving my customers 100% satisfaction and will keep you in the loop throughout the creative process starting with a rough draft for your approval.
