Richard Ellis was a great addition to our wedding reception - everyone enjoyed the characatures and watching them being created. He was very professional, arrived on time and blended into the reception seamlessly. Would highly recommend!

Richard was fantastic from start to finish! Everyone was entertained and loved having their pictures done, I would definitely recommend Richard to anyone looking for a characaturist for their event! Richard also made sure he caught the bride and groom before he finished for the day to ensure he got our picture done too. 10/10



  • How long is the act?

    Usually three hours, but other timings are available.

  • What is included in the wedding package?

    Drawings of around 10 or 11 people per hour, all placed in clear display sleeves which will keep them on show but protected. After all, they will be a souvenir of the occasion for years to come!

  • What other services to you provide?

    I also draw caricatures from photos for gifts - sometimes these are used as an alternative to a guest book at weddings and parties. Occasionally I run workshops for companies.

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

    I provide all my own materials, and do not need an electrical supply or any special facilities.

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

    None! I just need to get my pens and paper out, and I'm good to go!

Set List/Services

A typical performance lasts two to three hours. Usually, this is a mix and mingle act, but other arrangements can be made, such as working in team meetings.
