Who is the caricature artist for weddings in Ireland? I’m Allan Cavanagh and I’ve been drawing caricatures for nearly two decades all over Ireland. You can read some testimonials here.

What do I get when I hire a caricature artist for my wedding?

For 2 hours I will draw your guests in rapid succession while creating a wedding warm-up for your guests to interact and laugh together. I always get an audience while drawing and the big reveal to the sitters always gets a great reaction!

My live caricatures are very fast, taking around 3 minutes for one face or 4 minutes for a couple. I like to try and shave a couple of seconds off my drawing time every year!

The paper I use is 200gsm A3 white cartridge, each sheet is elegantly printed with your names and the date of your wedding. Each drawing is rolled and fastened, and presented to your guests on completion. Your guests will have a great laugh and the caricature drawing is a wonderful fun memento of your big day!

For the drinks reception I charge the following rate:

2 hours: starting from €550 (travel may affect price, please indicate your wedding venue when enquiring to get a complete costing)
There is a €100 deposit with the balance due the week before the wedding.

Like everything else you should always do a little research before booking an artist. A good artist will have dozens if not hundreds of recent examples of their live wedding caricature work easily found online. Search for relevant keywords, such as “caricature artist for weddings”, to see if you can find examples of their work.

If you can’t find their live work, don’t book ’em! For example I have hundreds of samples on this website, and I currently have over 200 5-star recommendations in Google reviews (and rising!) A good caricature artist should have easily found recommendations from real people. Each one of my reviews comes from couples whose weddings I’ve drawn at, corporate clients, or individuals I’ve drawn commissioned caricatures for. Have a look!
