Ardilaun Hotel Wedding Entertainment – Ardilaun Hotel Live Caricatures!

Ardilaun Hotel Wedding Entertainment: here’s a selection of my live wedding caricatures from a wedding last July in the Ardilaun Hotel here in Galway. I love working in the Ardilaun, and not just because it’s so close to home! It’s situated in a lovely green pocket in suburban Galway and is very close to the city centre and Salthill and is an excellent wedding venue.

This was I believe the third time I’d drawn the bride and groom, as their friends had had me at their weddings too! Not quite able to draw them with my eyes closed but I thought they looked familiar when they sat down 😁

How it works:

I arrive in the hotel about an hour before guests are due to arrive for the drinks reception and set up somewhere central and easy to spot. I usually get a couple of sitters straight away and after that I’m flat out for the 2 hours of the drinks reception, with an audience behind me! It’s great ice-breaking entertainment, a wedding warm-up as I call it, and I get tremendous feedback from my couples that their guests were very well entertained.  Caricatures are drawn in 3 minutes on A3 paper with the couple’s names and date of wedding printed in elegant Edwardian script at the bottom of the page. My caricatures are a fantastic memento of the big day!
