Wedding Reception Entertainment in the Hotel Meyrick Galway!

Wedding Reception Entertainment Ireland: Some of my on-the-spot art creation wedding reception entertainment at a wedding in the Hotel Meyrick Galway. A really lovely wedding this, in the welcoming environs of the Hotel Meyrick Galway. I’m always very well looked after by Paula and the team in this centrally-located Galway hotel that’s as much a part of the fabric of the city as Eyre Square itself, The Long Walk, or the Claddagh. I always look forward to entertaining the wedding guests in this lovely location and any couples I’ve worked with have been thrilled with their wedding receptions there.

For my live wedding reception entertainment, I set up my easel somewhere central during your drinks reception, usually near the prosecco! I take up about 2 metres squared so I’m not too obtrusive even if it’s a big wedding! Once the guests arrive I introduce myself and encourage my first sitters. This usually results in quite a crowd forming to watch the creation of my live wedding caricatures and I have my next volunteers immediately!

That’s me then until the bell goes for the call to dinner, producing a drawing every 3-4 minutes until it’s time to be seated for the meal. This is usually when the couple themselves get to sit with me for a minute and get their breath back before the next stage of the day begins for them!

The A3 paper is printed with the couple’s names and the date of the wedding so they are an excellent memento of the big day. Live caricatures are an excellent form of entertainment for your guests during your drinks reception. They are a great ice-breaker as guests gather around and start chatting and laughing at my drawings! I’m available as Wedding Reception Entertainment Ireland nationwide.

You can see my extensive archive of live wedding caricatures here.

I also have a range of wedding guest signing boards, a bespoke alternative to the traditional guestbook, here.

Drop me a line for a chat about your wedding or event!
