Dave is such a lovely man. Our guests were all delighted with their caricatures! We're going to frame ours and hang it up on the wall. Highly recommend. Also, we really appreciated how far he travelled to be at our wedding. 10/10 :)

Dave was amazing! Great communication before the wedding and his caricatures were absolutely fantastic! All our guests went away with a caricature and I wouldn’t hesitate to book Dave again at our next big event! Thank you for everything Dave we are so glad you joined us for our big day!

Amazing service from start to finish. Dave interacted with all the guests and everyone was over the moon with their pictures. Dave didn't leave anyone behind and even stayed a longer to make sure that everyone had a picture. Can't fault him at all, would definitely recommend. The perfect addition to our party!

Dave was very good. He was prompt, quick and had a queue waiting to have their pictures created. We have them all displayed in the office.
