  • review rating 5  Allan was absolutely fantastic at my wedding, despite timings being completely skewed, he ensured that all the guests had a wonderful experience in getting their portraits. He had a wonderful way with them, getting them to chat or discuss their interests and was so professional. We also got a wonderful signing board, as well as Allan providing us with a picture for our thank you cards. All of my guests were so thrilled with their pictures - I would highly recommend Allan!

    review rating 5  Allan was an absolute joy to deal with. He made everything so easy for us and we were absolutely thrilled with the end product. Allan drew a fantastic caricature which we asked our guests to sign instead of a guest book and they loved it! Could not recommend Allan more-he is so good at what he does!

    review rating 5  Thank you to Allan for entertaining our guests at our Wedding in the lovely Markree Castle in June. All our guests were raving about how talented he was but also that he was great craic. He made them feel very at ease as he exaggerated all their prominent features 🙂 We were delighted we booked it, and were happy our guests got such a cool keepsake from our special day. Allan was very easy to deal with from the moment we got in contact. We would highly recommend him to anyone thinking about booking a Caricature artist.Thanks again Allan

    review rating 5  Redited- Allan spotted my review on here and contacted me immediately. He had genuinely missed my email. He rectified it straight away and sent out a sketch. He dealt with the situation really well and I think that's a sign of really good customer service.EDITED. Allan was supposed to send us a sketch of ourselves after the wedding because he left before we got back to the hotel. He never did, and didn't respond to emails. Left a bad taste. Original review belowMy husband and I got Allan for our wedding coctail hour in Galway June 2017. Allan was super easy to deal with and very professional. In the run up to a wedding you appreciate straight forward suppliers who respond quickly and Allan did just that. Delighted we went with him.

  • review rating 5  This was my second time requesting a caricature from Allan and once again he did not disappoint! The first was a caricature for my wedding and the second was a request from my dad for a caricature of a friend who had a big birthday coming upAllan is just fantastic and so talented, he manages to capture features and expressions to an absolute tee, the extras he adds to his caricatures like the persons interests, hobbies etc , add that extra personal element to his drawingsOn both occasions the caricatures received over whelming responses 🙂 Allan himself is so professional and friendly, I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a caricaturist and I will definitely be ordering from him again in the future!

    review rating 5  We booked Allan for our wedding at the beginning of October. He travelled quite a distance to be with us and it was a pleasure to have him as part of our day. He really added something special to the day... guests are still talking about how great he was. And deservedly so! He had a constant queue and went above and beyond to make sure that everyone was taken care of. Guests were so thrilled with his caricatures. Allan is a true professional and a wonderful artist. We can’t thank him enough.

    thumb Tracy

    review rating 5  Allan is a fantastic creative artist who took on board everything we asked for and created a beautiful signing board for our wedding day.I would definitely recommend him to brides and grooms looking for a unique piece of decor for their day, which then becomes a piece of artwork that you can keep forever!

    thumb Laura Flanagan
  • review rating 5  We booked Allan for our wedding reception August 2018, and he was fantastic. Really put the guests at ease and there was a queue of people lining up once they saw how good his caricatures were. Highly recommended. The guest board he did for us was brilliant too!!

    thumb Kim Clancy

    review rating 5  Allan was a pleasure to deal with, a few quick emails and all was sorted. Our wedding guests loved their caricatures and it added a great buzz to our reception. I'd highly recommend Allan for any event, he wont dissapoint.

    review rating 5  We wanted a unique wedding invitation and contacted Allan with a picture of both of us and a few ideas on what he might include in the caricature. He got back with an amazing caricature of us with the venue we were to be married in on the background. We created a wedding invitation ourselves with this picture and were so impressed with the reaction we got from guests we decided to hire Allan on the Wedding Day too in Cabra Castle in Cavan to do LIVE caricatures. We were delighted with response from our guest s. He even took photos of our guests next to the completed caricatures which we really appreciated seeing afterwards as had been too busy on the day to see them done. We felt also it was a classy form of entertainment that matched our venue perfectly and in our opinion provided a lot more entertainment than the usual selfie machine you see regularly these days. Could not recommend Allan enough!!

  • review rating 5  Allan was a massive hit at our wedding! All the guests loved him! We have seen so many of our guests frame the caricatures he did on the day. It was such a great touch and really made our reception special. We absolutely love our canvas and have hung it up now, it is such a nice way to transport us back to the day and read all the messages from our guests! Thanks for everything Allan, we can't recommend you highly enough!

(It’s caricature, not characture, but I totally see where people are coming from… character, characture, it seems more logical than caricature!)
