Wedding Signing Board: Get Me to the Fire Station on Time!

firefighters tandem bike wedding

In a change to the regular signing board wedding gear I got to draw this couple in their fire-fighting protective clothing! Whenever their beepers go off they hop on their bikes to get to the fire station so thought it would be fun to have them on a tandem bike belting along as their beepers go off! I gave them a glass of champagne of course as it was their wedding day. They’ve both got military backgrounds as well hence the tank reference in the background.

Harry Potter Themed Wedding Signing Board

harry potter themed wedding signing board caricatures from photos

The bride in this one is a big Harry Potter fan so on went the Sorting Hat and wand! Also pictured are this family’s 3 pet cats, some weightlifting and a football with the Arsenal logo on it. This caricature was then printed on canvas which is mounted on a 40x60cm wooden stretcher by my friends in The Canvas Works in Kinsale and delivered straight to the venue (always good when you can tick one more thing off the list for the couple getting married!) If you’re interested in a personalised caricature signing board for your wedding just drop me a line. They make great wedding presents too!

Canvas Wedding Signing Board

Canvas Wedding Signing Board: with weddings now back in style my canvas signing boards are starting to move again and here’s one I created for a lovely couple earlier this year. It features symbolic objects from their lives including teaching, science, PE, technical drawing, engineering, and farming (you can see the prize bull in the background!)
When you order one of my canvas signing boards for your wedding, I create a unique caricature from photos of you both and incorporate as many jokes, hobbies and other references as you like. There is a short order form to complete to capture these details as well as your eye colour and hair colour (not always obvious from photos!). You then receive a 40cm x 60cm canvas print on a wooden stretcher, with white space around the caricature for your guests to sign on the day. It can either be sent to your home address or delivered straight to the venue, whichever you prefer. They’re supplied ready to hang but are also suitable for framing. Price at time of writing is €250 including delivery and 2 fine tip black Sharpie markers. You can see this signing board in place at the venue waiting for the guests signatures below! If you’ve any questions about my personalised canvas signing boards just drop me a line!

Brexit-Themed Wedding Invitation!

Brexit Themed Wedding Invitation caricature ireland

This caricature was for the invitations for a cross-border wedding last year, and the couple chose to have a fun take on the impending Brexit business! They’re standing on the border with the family farm and a blue New Holland tractor in the background. In the ground either side of the “border” are the county flags for Fermanagh and Leitrim. I’ve drawn the couple in the actual wedding attire they were planning for their big day, right down to the groom’s navy dickie-bow!
The Irish wedding industry will be hotting up again by the summer and already people are planning their weddings for 2022, 2023, and I’ve even had an enquiry for 2024! If you want to capture a feeling of fun right from the get-go a caricature wedding invitation is the way to go. If you order one of my wedding signing boards the digital version of the artwork is included for free! You can simply send this file to your printer and they’ll do the rest. So if you’re at the planning stage of your wedding and you’re starting to think about what to put on those wedding invitations, or you’re looking for a fun way to commemorate your big day, feel free to get in touch any time!

Personalised Wedding Signing Board Caricatures: this caricature was for one of my canvas wedding signing boards for a wedding last December. It features the couple with their interests in GAA, going to gigs, reading, and also present is their pet dog! The hotel they were married in appears in the background.
I got some nice feedback from the customer on it too:
“That signing board you did for me went down an absolute treat- they were thrilled with it, thank you so much.”
