If you’re thinking about hiring a caricaturist but not sure if one would be worth it... think again! A caricaturist is an ideal way of breaking the ice at your party, entertaining guests between proceedings.
Our caricature artists will make your event a blast! In just mere moments, our artists will sketch hilarious cartoon pictures of you and your guests. Kids are enthralled, adults are entertained, and everyone leaves with a cherished memento of your day.
On average a caricaturist is able to complete 12 - 15 caricatures per hour, usually to lots of laughter from the victim’s friends. However, this does depend on whether the caricaturist is using colour, drawing one person or a couple at the same time and if a background is required.
Our caricaturists are happy to work in almost every environment, provided there is enough light to adequately see. Working either standing and mingling with guests or seated, a light-hearted caricature drawn in black and white or colour on A4 paper usually takes about five minutes.
Caricaturists are ideal for all types of events.
While the bride and groom are having their photos done the rest of the guests often mill around and this can be awkward for many of them as there will be numerous people that they don't know. A wedding caricaturist is a great ice breaker and gives people something to laugh and talk about. The caricaturist will walk around mingling with your guests, drawing them as he/she goes. Every wedding caricature is free to each of your guests as you pay a one off hire fee which includes all the caricatures he/she draws at your event.
The wedding caricaturist will move around the room table by table drawing as they go. Some people don't like being drawn while they are eating, so they will draw people on tables between courses or those who have finished eating. This can come in very handy if there have been any delays with the food as it keeps your guests occupied while they are waiting. Don't underestimate the effect a wedding caricaturist can have on the atmosphere at your wedding. You will always hear plenty of laughter in the vicinity of a caricaturist in action, which means your family and friends are enjoying themselves. What's more, the wedding caricature makes the perfect wedding favour, which they can take home and frame.
Don't forget, with prior arrangement with the caricaturist, you can have your names and the date of your wedding, pre-printed onto the paper before the event.
If you are booking a caricaturist for the evening, then it is best to utilise their services in the earlier part of the evening. This part of the evening is when you will get the most benefit. At this point the DJ has not got people up and dancing yet, evening guests are starting to arrive and most people are sitting around in groups, not really knowing what to do with themselves. Again, the fun aspect of the caricaturist’s art has an amazing effect on the atmosphere and you will see crowds start to gather around the caricaturist as they watch in amazement, the caricature of their friend or family member take shape before their eyes.

Just wanted to send you a note to say that Rick was just such a rock star on our stand this week at Black Hat Europe. He is just such a super chap and totally wonderful to work with. He just rocks up and gets on with things, we had some issues with our cabling and he sorted that out and then just keeps rolling all day. He chats away with all the ‘customers’ and is a joy to work with. All our team at Carbon Black, just love him.
The event was a huge success and we have had some great feedback. It was certainly one of the most popular areas of the night!
It was a great night and we have had fantastic feedback on all the acts that you provided.
The acts went down really, people seem to enjoy them and each one appealed to a different group so a nice mix for all staff.
