Wedding Caricatures Jack’s Old Cottage Mayo

caricature artist mayo wedding reception 13

One of my first weddings back after lockdown was in Jack’s Old Cottage in Islandeady near Castlebar, a meticulously restored cottage museum in the heart of the Mayo countryside. After the long gap in live wedding caricatures due to lockdown I’m always anxious I’ll have forgotten how to do it but as you can see from the gallery below I think I’ve still got it! Each couple below took less than five minutes to draw. I suppose it’s like learning to ride a bike, once you can draw quick caricatures live you never forget! The cottage is open to the public and is free to visit and is worth stopping by if you’re in the area.

Wedding Gift Caricature

unusual wedding gift ireland

This caricature was a wedding gift for a wedding last year and was put on display for the arrival of the bride and groom! The bride is wearing a Kerry jersey, and the groom has a Kerry bandana around his neck. It features signposts for Shrone, Killorglin and Dublin. Also included are the Sunday Times, a pilates mat, a GAA football and references to other sports including golf, rugby, badminton, tennis and hurling. And a cup of herbal tea! In the background is a vintage wedding car with cans on the back and the bride and groom’s initials on the number plate with a loveheart.
Weddings will be back in a big way later this year so if you’re going to one and you’re looking for a really special personalised wedding gift drop me a line!
