Absolutely brilliant!!

Gremlyn was fantastic from start to finish! Before the event He was always quick to reply to any messages I sent. He was also flexible with us as our dates changed due to covid. On the night, everybody loved him! He's a lovely lovely guy.. really talented.. funny.. all round brilliant artist!!! At one point a que had formed and he still managed to get through everyone. He captured everyone's personality and look so brilliantly.. and really funny!! Couldn't ask for more.. 100% recommended!

We love him and his drawings are insane also a fabulous reminder of our day! Only regret we had is that we didn’t book him for longer we certainly wished we had!

10/10, an excellent addition to our wedding!

I honestly don't have enough words to describe how amazing Gremlyn was. We decided incredibly last minute that we would like a caricaturist and booked him literally two days before the wedding. I couldn't believe how affordable his services were compared to lots of other suppliers & when I found out he could fit us in I was over the moon!

Everybody thought it was an amazing idea to have something like this, and loved that they had a personal reminder of the wedding. My guests all commented on how brilliant he was - his style is incredibly flattering whilst still looking like a caricature. As a person, he is absolutely hilarious and so friendly!

We booked him for 2hours and I wish we had booked him for longer - he powered through our guests, it's insane how fast he works and yet produces something of such high quality, but we didn't quite fit everyone in! He even stayed a bit longer to fit a few more people in & I know he would have stayed even more if he didn't have somewhere to be, but he went above & beyond and sent an email offering to draw one more of my parents from a photo & send it to them as the just missed out. I know they will be over the moon.

I would recommend Gremlyn to anyone - if you're thinking about it, just do it! You won't regret it.

Thank you Gremlyn!
