Why book a wedding Caricaturist
Over the year I am booked to draw at many weddings throughout the south East of England and London. Attending weddings in village halls, country hotels and some very exclusive venues in London. The weddings are for many different people and from many walks of life. Each wedding, mostly follows the same protocol and format, and why not, it works very well. What I didn’t expect though, when I started as a wedding caricaturist, is how each wedding has been so unique. Each couple have, in some way, it seems, put their personal mark on the occasion. Beautiful flowers and decor, a superb singer, a classical harpist, or just a location that just is so amazing, it is great just being there. To add to the mix, there is another great entertainment option – a wedding caricaturist.
What does a wedding caricaturist do?
A wedding Caricaturist can add so much to your special day. A centre piece where guests can watch a drawing develop, a piece of magic. Enjoy a humorous interpretation of a sitter – I do these when requested. But the biggest benefit for the guests that are drawn is that they get to keep a fantastic caricature portrait of themselves to take home. A great memento of the day. Sometimes I date the drawings, sign and write the venue in too. All in my beautiful handwriting. Sometimes I draw whole families as couples, together or one by one. For the wedding couple though, the biggest benefit is they get to keep a stunning drawing of themselves. Smiling, drawn on A2 paper to remember the day, signed and with a short message. I get many letters and cards thanking me for the drawings I do from couples. Most get framed I believe.
“I just wanted to take the time to thank you for all the fantastic caricatures you didi of our guests on our wedding day. We had fantastic feedback, everyone loved them and they thought it was a unique touch to have at a wedding. We loved our Caricature and have had it framed. All the best Clare and Alex xx”.
But rest assured if the bride and groom don’t get a chance to be drawn on the day, I can send a drawing from one of the wedding photos for you after. I am happy to do that as it is your special day and because of you both I was booked to attend.
