Great addition to our wedding. We had this as a surprise for our day guests and so many guests received a personalised picture which they were able to take away.
Chris and his wife were always very responsive to all messages and we would highly recommend

Chris was an excellent addition to our wedding. The guests found it absolutely hilarious and it was such fun to be able to send our guests home with their pictures which have been circulating in a ‘guess who’ style around our friends and family WhatsApp groups ever since!
Thank you Chris, you were efficient, on time and set your kit up discreetly and made sure to capture everyone.
I would absolutely recommend Chris to anyone considering a caricaturist- you won’t be disappointed!

Chris attended my sons engagement party and was a massive hit with all of the guests. He worked non stop for the whole time we had booked him and produced fantastic accurate caricatures. He was happy to draw individuals or groups. I would definitely recommend Chris without hesitation, it was a brilliant addition to the party and everyone loved their pictures.

Chris's service was great. On the night he was timely and the ease of his set up was smooth and efficient. Our party goers loved his drawings which added a huge amount of laughs, attention and entertainment to the evening. We would highly recommend Chris for any occasions and using a Caricaturist is a great alternative to a photo booth if you have had them before and are looking for something a little special.

  • How long is the act?

    The act usually lasts around 2-3 hours, depending on the number of guests. I can advise on the appropriate time slot at the time of booking, once I know more about your event and the number of people attending.

  • What is included in the wedding package?

    Each one of your guests will receive an A3 caricature drawing ready to be framed, and complete with a clear plastic sleeve for protection – a perfect memento of a night to remember. I can offer you great pictures and great fun, and a lot of laughter for the most competitive price! Capturing the likeness is what I do best. You can customise your paper however you like, with the name of the venue, you company logo, the names or a small caricature of the bride and groom, or the date of the event printed on the top or bottom of the page.

  • What other services to you provide?

    Yes. If the caricatures are in high demand at the party (which happens very often), I always ensure that everyone queuing for a drawing receives one, even if I have to stay on for longer than planned. This means that you get your money’s worth, and nobody gets left out. You can customise your paper however you like, with the name of the venue, you company logo, the names or a small caricature of the bride and groom, or the date of the event printed on the top or bottom of the page.

  • Do you need specific materials or conditions to offer your service?

    To secure your date, all you need to do is pay a deposit of £50. The bank details will be sent to you together with the booking form once all the details of the event have been agreed upon. The remaining balance can be paid in cash on the day/night of the event. For traditional drawings at events, all I need is two chairs, a small table, a good central spot and… that’s it! I will provide everything else, from drawing materials to the necessary equipment. Tip: it can be helpful to let the guests know about the act in advance, so they can get excited about taking part. For digital caricatures, I usually ask for a flat screen tv so the guests can watch the caricature-drawing live – but although this is a big part of the entertainment aspect, it isn’t essential!

  • How much time do you need to prepare for an act?

    10 minutes

  • How long do you need to set up?


  • Do you have Public Liability Insurance?

    I am DBS-checked, have full Public Liability Insurance, and my act is guaranteed to amuse children and adults alike.

  • What experience do you have working with children?


  • Are you DBS checked?

    I am DBS-checked, have full Public Liability Insurance, and my act is guaranteed to amuse children and adults alike.

  • Do you limit the number of children that we can invite to our child's Birthday party?



    The guests don’t have to pay for the drawings. Each caricature I draw at the event is included in the original booking fee, so people can enjoy the act and receive a caricature as a keepsake at the end!


    Yes. During events like dinner parties or wedding receptions where the guests are likely to be busy eating or socialising, drawing from photographs is often a good idea. With their permission, I take a photo of the guests with an iPad Pro, and draw remotely from photographs.

Set List/Services


- Each guest at the party or event receives a high-quality traditional caricature drawing, in a protective clear foil sleeve to prevent damage. If I run out of time, I will often stay on to finish my work with no extra cost, so that nobody gets left out!
- A choice of the popular cartoon-style drawings, or the more original and unique drawings for which I use a special coal and pastel technique.
- Truly individual and personal caricature drawings; I am known for my ability to capture likeness, whilst adding a bit of fun and silliness to the final product. This results in all kinds of laughter - from giggles to hysterics - and there are always unexpected surprises!
- A5 format printed DIGITAL caricatures that could be made into ‘avatar necklaces’ or badges, for each person to wear for the duration of the party, conference or any corporate event.
Sounds like something you're after? I can guarantee the lowest price on the market - so there is no point in shopping around!
