Wedding entertainment in east London
"Do you, amazingly-engaged singleton couplet, hire this experienced, personable, talented and modest caricaturist to provide confetti-tastic wedding reception entertainment by sketching fun caricatures of your nearest and dearest, 'till the end of the booking do you part? You do? I now pronounce you wonderfully-wedded doubletons and whiz wedding caricaturist!"
Wedding entertainment is a piece of cake - although they occasionally end in tiers. Producing lots of quickfire portraits is easier since relatives all look the same. Joinkg aside, every one of the faces I draw is unique, and family members know each other's personalities like their own, so they always enjoy it when I've teased the authentic characters out from behind their fancy fascinators & wonky floral boutonnières.
As wedding entertainment ideas go, hiring a caricaturist is original one, but after having being hired to provide entertainment at well over a thousand wedding receptions over 22 years, mainly near me in London but also all over the UK, as well as being fun, it's my day-to-day bread-and-butter. Here's how it often goes -
I start sketching during drinks straight after the wedding ceremony (if there has been one). At this point the bride & groom are sometimes away busy with photos, and I can help prevent a sense of a 'lull' occurring.

Wedding entertainment hire has obviously been hit hard by the coronavirus - but I can still sketch. What I do is especially well-suited to socially-distanced micro/macro/mini gatherings. As small wedding party entertainment ideas go, hiring me is a big and bright one! Please see my Covid update here.
The wedding entertainment usually continues during the meal, where I discretely sketch table-to-table. It gets conversations going, and prompts laughter - the greatest icebreaker of all - at tables which would probably otherwise be hushed apart from the sound of soup-slurping.
The wedding couple can have their sketch done when they like, and I can also ensure certain family members/guests are sketched, or concentrate on the top table - just point me in the right direction.
Once the set pieces have run their course, the atmosphere usually becomes 'jolly', and I'm in high demand with guests getting a jolly good laugh out of the sketches (and me).
